    Emmanuel Sanders signed an offer sheet with the New England Patriots after visiting the team on Friday, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

    Restricted free agents like Sanders rarely change teams these days, but the Patriots used some of their salary-cap room to make a front-loaded offer, which Pittsburgh could find tough to match.

    Terms of the offer were not disclosed, but the Steelers now have seven days to match it. If they choose not to, the Patriots would send a third-round draft pick in 2013 to the Steelers.

    Sanders would join a rebuilt Patriots wide receiver group alongside new signees Danny Amendola and Donald Jones.

    I've heard conflicting reports. Some saying he left without an offer sheet, but I tend to believe he did sign, and we won't be able to match it. Our wide receivers corps is just crap now. Not expecting much out of next season, another 8-8.

    I've only heard one report that has said he didn't sign. The Boston papers and Pittsburgh papers are reporting he did.

    They'll be lucky to see 8-8. Very lucky...

    Schefter is reporting that no offer has been signed.

    @AdamSchefter: Patriots still mulling whether to sign Steelers WR Emmanuel Sanders to an offer sheet. So far, no decision made and no offer sheet signed.

    Yea Schefter is reported no offer sheet yet and he is never wrong.

    More reports coming out saying he signed now. I'm still waiting for a more credible source, but Rotoworld just reported it.

    Seems like Schefter is all over the Pats right now but hasn't confirmed the Sanders signing.

    Yea NationalFootballPost also reporting he signed it, but it looks like they are citing Gerry Dulac's article as the source, and that was already reported as being wrong. So hopefully just some bad information.

    Wonder if they are using Sanders as a bargaining chip to sign Lloyd...

    I see ignorant Steeler fans on there bashing him lol. Let's see play for low money for a year and possibly get injured and never get paid again, or get a long term deal from a team and some job security? hmmm....
