Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette indicated during a chat that he believes the Steelers will let Emmanuel Sanders walk in free agency.
Dulac also believes the Steelers might target a tall receiver within the first two rounds of May’s NFL draft.
I think they will stick with what they have, plus draft a tall receiver in the first or second round. I think they will let Sanders leave in free agency for a number of reasons and are perfectly comfortable thinking Markus Wheaton will not only replace him, but also be a much better receiver. Their intent is to take a tall receiver early — they have already indicated that to Ben Roethlisberger — another indication that Sanders will be gone.
