    Question about Sanders offer

    The way it stands right now, I would be willing to let Sanders go if that means getting the 3rd round pick and possibly using the rest of the money to try and get Bradshaw. Regardless of whether anybody would want Bradshaw, I would still favor the pick over a one year deal with Sanders. Let's say the Steelers match New England's offer to keep Sanders. One of the reasons why a lot of people would be willing to let Sanders go and take the pick is because of longevity. We would rather have a 3rd round pick that lasts 4 years than Sanders who would last one year. My question is, if Pittsburgh were to keep Sanders, would they then try to extend Sanders after next season? Or is that the whole point of what is happening right now? If they had intentions of signing Sanders to a long term deal why would they let this go so far to the point where theyre almost going to lose him?


    P.S. I hate the Patriots. Nobody tries to manipulate the system and screw over more teams more than they do. All to hide the fact that they don't know how to draft wide receivers.

    Yes, from everything ive seen they will match Sanders, if they feel they can work out a long term deal at some point.

    Yes, Bradshaw is coming in for another predraft visit, which will have an impact on our draft possibilities if he signs.

    If they feel they lwill lose Sanders they will just let him walk. I just read that the FO is 50/50 on him. Surely im sure his agent is busy talking what ifs...

    Steelers have some contract maneuverability if they choose to do so. Ike, Troy, Heath, to name a few. Choice not to resign won't be because of money.

    I also have a question that I have not been able to find an answer to.....If the Steelers do not match the Patriots on the Sanders offer, will the loss of Sanders be eligible for a compensatory pick in next years draft as well?....

    If so, essentially, we will be giving up Sanders for a 3rd (Ne's) in the 2013 draft, and a 3-7th in the 2014 draft.....an above average deal if that is the case.
