Former Steelers WR Emmanuel Sanders announces retirement

On Wednesday, previous Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders declared he is resigning from the NFL after 12 NFL seasons

The Steelers reputation has forever been its capacity to develop mid-round wide recipient ability into stars

No preferable class outlined over the 2010 draft class that acquired Sanders in the third round and Antonio Brown in the 6th

Sanders enjoyed his initial four seasons with Pittsburgh and got 161 passes for 2,030 getting yards and 11 getting scores

Sanders went to the Broncos in a free agency where he bested 100 receptions in 2014

Pittsburgh deciding to pay Brown and let Sanders leave will always be one of those "Imagine a scenario where?" crossroads in establishment history.
