Sanders was drafted in the fourth round by the Jaguars last April and signed a four-year, $2.64 million contract that included a $481,448 signing bonus.
He has played in 13 games this year and is second on the team with 41 catches. In last week’s loss to Buffalo, Sanders made his first NFL touchdown catch.

Jacksonville running back Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) missed practice again on Thursday.Fantasy Spin:Jones-Drew missed Sunday's game against the Bills, allowing Jordan Todman to get 29 touches. If MJD is out again in Week 16 against Tennessee, Todman will be worth using as a RB2. Jones-Drew would have the same value if he's active.
The Jacksonville Jaguars plan to let veteran running back Maurice Jones-Drew test free agency.
