Sanders Watch 2013 is finally over!
The Pittsburgh Steelers matched the offer from the New England Patriots, meaning that Emmanuel Sanders will remain a Steeler for the time being.
The Steelers had until 11:59 PM tonight to match the contract offer Sanders signed with the Patriots. Had Pittsburgh declined to match the offer, they would have received the Patriots’ third round draft pick in the upcoming draft.
But all of that is moot now that Sanders is staying put.
