Wheaton was drafted to replace Sanders. I agree Sanders is gone. He had a chance last season and really lacked consistency.
My main point was that all teams in the salary cap era have to count on kids stepping up when needed. The success of any team depends on the success of moves like this (taking Sanders' spot). We drafted him in the third to do just that.

The Jets are even more likely to go after free agent Emmanuel Sanders now that Jeremy Maclin has re-signed with the Eagles.

The Steeler way...is the only way.
