Found March 26, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
While the New England Patriots haven’t been tied to Pittsburgh Steelers restricted free agent Emmanuel Sanders since hosting him soon after the free agency period began, Field Yates of ESPN Boston notes that the team could still express interest in the wide out. In order to make an attempt at acquiring Sanders, the Patriots would have to sign him to an offer sheet. Since they have yet to do so, it’s been assumed that they are content moving forward with Danny Amendola and the rest of their wide receivers. However, the Patriots have some time before a decision on whether or not to sign Sanders to an offer sheet has to be made. The Steelers have five days after April 19 to decide whether or not to match any offers for Sanders. Pittsburgh has placed a third-round tender on the wide receiver, meaning they would get the Patriots’ third-round draft choice in 2013 if they don’t match. Pittsburgh has a tight cap at the moment, the New England could be holding off on a move until it sees what else the Steelers do this offseason.
