Emmanuel Sanders understands his career could be over with the Steelers after Sunday

Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders understands this week’s game could be his final outing as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

“I love it here,” Sanders said via ESPN.com. “This is home to me. I hope everything works out for the best.”

Sanders’ contract runs out after this season and he could end up being a highly sought after free agent while the Steelers may not be able to afford to re-sign him.
