Emmanuel Sanders

Emmanuel Sanders is definitely the highest-valued receiver still to be without a contract. The biggest con straight away with Sanders is the market value he is going to demand based on the performance he has had.

Sanders is likely to require at least $10 million per year. On top of that, after being traded last year the receiver is likely going to be looking for a long term deal. For this to work with New Orleans, they are going to need to scrape up the money somewhere.

However, Sanders would be the perfect complement next to Michael Thomas. We saw late last year after the arrival of Deebo Samuel, the kind of one-two punch that Sanders can offer with another wide receiver, especially a superstar one.

In nine games last year for the Niners, Sanders reeled in 36 receptions for 502 yards and three touchdowns. While Thomas likes to play short, Sanders could be a big-play receiver the New OrleansSaints have been searching for.
