Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders hoping to reach 1,000 yards
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/27/15) Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders believes the new offensive scheme in Denver will effect his numbers, accoridng to the team's website.
Sanders is working with new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison and coach Gary Kubiak to install the team's new offense and noted it's very different from last year's spread attack.
"You talk about going from a no-huddle offense to an offense that's huddling up, to an offense that is predicated off running a football and then throwing it. It's different," Sanders said.
"It's a totally different set up, but I tell you what, the more and more I'm in it," said Sanders. "Because we can get the run game going and just use my vertical speed on cross routes and all these different combinations of routes is based off the play action, then I think the offense will be successful with Peyton Manning at the helm."
Sanders, who totaled 1,404 yards and nine touchdowns in 2014, doesn't think he'll accomplish the same numbers.
"Of course obviously it's not going to be one of those offenses, well I'm praying that it is, but obviously it's not going to be one of those offenses where you catch it and you're going to have two receivers catching over 100 passes," said Sanders. "Hopefully, my goal is really to try to get a 1,000 yards to just help this team win ball games."
Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders will play more slot this season
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(4/13/15) Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders said he was informed by coaches that he will slide into the slot receiver role vacated by Wes Welker, per Pro Football Talk.
Sanders, who is coming off a Pro Bowl campaign in which he caught 101 passes for 1,404 yards and nine touchdowns -- all career highs -- will make room for Cody Latimer on the outside.
"Cody is a special player. He has strong hands and is a physical tool. I think this is going to be the year that he jumps onto the scene," Sanders said.
Broncos' Peyton Manning teases Demaryius Thomas for skipping workout
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/5/15) As expected, Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas skipped QB Peyton Manning's offseason passing workout at Duke University last week.
Thomas was tagged by the team, keeping him off the free agent market, and he's in the process of negotiating a long-term contract with the Broncos. He intends to work out on his own until the deal is done.
Manning spent the week throwing to Broncos pass catchers Owen Daniels, Andre Caldwell, Emmanuel Sanders, Cody Latimer and Virgil Green.
Manning poked fun at Thomas by photoshopping him into a group picture, taken at Duke after a workout.
WR Emmanuel Sanders says Peyton Manning will return to Broncos
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/24/15) Although Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders' only communication with Peyton Manning was through a postseason text message, he believes that the veteran quarterback will return for another season, he told NFL.com on Friday.
Sanders and the Broncos were eliminated by the Colts in the AFC divisional round. Since that loss, the Broncos' coaching staff has been overhauled, with coach John Fox and offensive coordinator Adam Gase heading to Chicago.
"Well, Gase is definitely in Chicago right now," Sanders said. "And Peyton says he's going to come back, but I'm not really worried about it, I really just want to win a Super Bowl. So that is all that is on my mind."
Gary Kubiak was hired to take Fox's place in Denver, and Sanders said that if Manning doesn't return, backup Brock Osweiler would fit "really well" in the team's new offensive scheme.
"Yeah, I think Brock is a quarterback that is on the rise, he's going to continuously get better and I feel like Kubiak's offense fits him really well," Sanders said.
Sanders signed a three-year, $15 million contract with the Broncos last March. He earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl after totaling 101 catches for 1,404 yards and nine touchdowns -- all career highs.
Broncos WR Sanders replacing Falcons WR Jones in Pro Bowl
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/16/15) Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones will miss the 2015 Pro Bowl because he is still recovering from a late-season hip injury. Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders will take Jones' spot on the Pro Bowl roster.
Jones made his second Pro Bowl roster after totaling 104 catches for 1,593 yards and six touchdowns in 15 games in 2014. Sanders is now headed to his first Pro Bowl after totaling 101 catches for 1,404 yards and nine touchdowns -- all career highs.
|Emmanuel Sanders was a star in his first season with the Broncos and Peyton Manning in 2014, and we hope he can build off that performance this year with Manning back in Denver. Sanders had career highs in catches (101), yards (1,404) and touchdowns (nine), and he was second in targets for the Broncos behind Demaryius Thomas (184) with 141. Now, the change in system with Gary Kubiak taking over could impact Sanders in a negative way since Kubiak doesn't have a lengthy history of two receivers posting quality stats, but we're not nervous since Manning remains under center. Sanders should have another season with at least 80-plus catches, 1,200-plus total yards and at least seven touchdowns. He's worth drafting no later than Round 3 in the majority of leagues as a must-start receiver.
