Saints’ Emmanuel Sanders swapping with 49ers’ Deebo Samuel
Emmanuel Sanders is one of the newest additions to the New Orleans Saints roster. Sanders was brought in this offseason in free agency to help the Saints wide receiving core that was solely Michael Thomas last season.
Last season, Sanders was traded from the Denver Broncos to the San Francisco 49ers in the middle of the year. That is where Sanders first teamed up with the up and coming rookie receiver Deebo Samuel.
Between the two of them, they torched the Saints last season. They combined for 233 receiving yards and a touchdown. This year, they will not be playing together, but they will be playing against each other.
The jersey swap between the older generation and the younger generation can be one of the greatest moments in a young player’s career. After leaving on a good note, I can only imagine they will love seeing each other again.
