Emmanuel Sanders will visit Buccaneers after meeting with Jaguars

Sanders may be leveraging his current meeting with the Jaguars, but he's scheduled to meet with the Buccaneers tomorrow in his quick run through free agency.

It's the classic leverage move.

"Hey coach, thanks for having me, but that's not the offer I was looking for, and I have to get to the airport. I'm meeting with another team close by geographically, so unless you have anything else to offer..."

Whether Sanders feels Jacksonville is the best fit for him, or if it will end up being Tampa Bay, his market is picking up steam. Golden Tate signed with the Lions earlier Wednesday, and with Cleveland seemingly linked to every free agent on the market, it appears he's become the main receiver still available.

The higher his contract, the higher the Steelers' compensatory pick could be. With the signing of free safety Mike Mitchell, they've got some ground to make up in that regard.
