According to Josh Alper of Profootballtalk.com, Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert hasn’t received an offer sheet from the New England Patriots. Reports are receiver Emmanuel Sander had signed an offer sheet from the Patriots; however, Colbert says no contract has surfaced. The Steelers must receive the offer in order to match the offer or work out the compensation if they choose not to. Alper writes: ‘Those reports were quickly rebutted by those that said no offer sheet had been extended and Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert confirmed that remains the case on Sunday. Bob Labriola of the Steelers website reports that Colbert said the team has not received an offer sheet for Sanders from anyone, which means Sanders hasn’t yet signed a deal with anyone else. A run at Sanders would require giving up a third-round pick and structuring a contract that the Steelers wouldn’t match.’   var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
