Emmanuel Sanders 'Not Trying To Break The Bank' In Contract Talks 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jul 29, 2016 1:00 pm

Emmanuel Sanders, who appears to be the next player on the verge of a contract extension with the Denver Broncos, says he isn't shooting for the stars.

"It's not frustrating. It's actually a blessing," Sanders said of the ongoing talks. "We're talking millions and millions of dollars that I can earn just by the game that I love. At the end of the day, I'm looking forward to it, but I know you guys want to know the answers to that, where are we at.

"We're trying to find that middle ground of saying, you know what, this is a fair deal for me and for the Denver Broncos. I said it from Day One -- I'm not trying to break the bank. I want to be here. But I also want a fair deal, and I want a fair deal for the production I've been putting out, so we'll see how it goes."

Sanders is entering the final year of the deal he signed in 2014, and is scheduled to make $5.6 million this season.
