3rd Round Pick Emmanuel Sanders Signed By The Pittsburgh Steelers

According to a reliable source, the Pittsburgh Steelers have signed Emmanuel Sanders today to a contract. The contract is rumored to be for three years and in the range of about two million dollars. Sanders himself is the reliable source after posting on his twitter account the following:

It's official!!!!!!!! Ya boy is a Pittsburgh Steeler!!! Signed-seeled the re deal. Can't wait to earn every cent plus more!!!!

Sanders is a speedster who posted some exceptional numbers during his time at small school Southern Methodist, posting 958 yards and nine touchdown in ten games last season, even if they were posted in June Jones somewhat unorthodox offense. If Sanders is able to have even a small portion of the impact that last years third round pick, Mike Wallace, was able to produce it would surely help lessen the impact of trading away Santonio Holmes this off-season for a bag of rice. Cheers to the newest Steeler, Emmanuel Sanders.
