Broncos trade wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders to 49ers

It’s official. The Broncos are trading wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders to the San Francisco 49ers, reported ESPN.

Denver is including a 2020 fifth-round pick with Sanders in the deal, according to NFL sources. In exchange, San Francisco is sending third- and fourth-round 2020 draft picks.

Sanders, 32, has 30 catches for 367 yards and two touchdowns in seven games this season. It was his sixth season with the Broncos (2-5). Sanders is a two-time Pro Bowler with 7,391 receiving yards and 39 touchdown catches in 134 career games, according to ESPN.

Sanders tore his left Achilles tendon during practice last December and also had surgery on his right ankle in January. Since then, he’s made an impressive recovery and returned to training camp workouts by the middle of August.
