Restricted free agent Emmanuel Sanders is visiting the Patriots on Friday.
Power move. Even low-level restricted free agents rarely escape their tendering team, but the Steelers find themselves in a mess of a cap situation. Sanders is tendered at the original-round level, which means the Patriots would only have to surrender a third-round pick if they signed him to an offer sheet Pittsburgh couldn't match. The Pats ' as you may have heard ' have a ton of cap room and could offer a front-loaded deal Pittsburgh can't equal. Just 26 years old (on Sunday) with 94 catches in three seasons, Sanders would be worth a third-round gamble. He can play all three receiver spots, and has 4.4 wheels.
