Although a newspaper report recently indicated the Denver Broncos might trade wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders to save money under the salary cap, general manager John Elway apparently isn't likely to make the move.
The NFL Network reported that Sanders probably is staying put.
"From my understanding, the Broncos do not want to deal him," Insider Ian Rapoport reported on NFL Total Access. "He's got a $10 million cap number ... but, remember, they want to lure a big-time free-agent quarterback to the team. This quarterback -- maybe Kirk Cousins, maybe someone else -- needs someone to throw to."
The 30-year-old Sanders, who had more than 1,000 receiving yards for three consecutive seasons through 2016, slipped to 47 receptions for 555 yards and two touchdowns in 2017.
However, he was slowed by injuries and the Broncos had problems at quarterback, which contributed to the decline.
