The Patriots have been causing a lot of buzz around the league over the past few days. In addition to signing Donald Jones, they have Dwight Freeney, Adrian Wilson, John Abraham and now reportedly Emmanuel Sanders scheduled to visit today.
Steelers RFA WR Emmanuel Sanders visiting Patriots today. Pats could sign him to offer sheet that cap-strapped Steelers struggle to match.

The restricted free-agent WR who spent the first few years of his career with the Steelers could easily wind up with the Patriots. The Steelers placed a third-round tender on him, but have little money to offer him. The Pats on the other hand, have plenty of money to spend. If they offer him a big enough contract, the Steelers would not be able to match it in the rebuttal offer that they are allowed since Sanders is restricted. Quick note, the Pats would have to give the Steelers a third round pick.
The wide receiver overhaul continues!
