NFL Free Agency: Emmanuel Sanders Visits Jacksonville, 'Likes It There'

One of the top potential targets for the Patriots may be getting away. According to Adam Schefter, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders was in Jacksonville today, and he ‘likes it there’. Why he likes being around a franchise like that is beyond me.

Jason La Canfora also said that Sanders is scheduled to meet with the Bucs today, which isn’t good news for the Patriots.

I have been hoping New England would sign Sanders for a long time, but he might be slipping away from their grasps. When you combine that with the Ravens interest in Julian Edelman, the Pats receiving corps could be in shambles in no time.

But there is still hope. There have been no official announcements regarding a contract between Sanders and the Jaguars, which means there is still a chance he could end up catching passes from Tom Brady in 2014.
