Steelers match Patriots’ offer to Emmanuel Sanders

Jordan Woy, the agent for restricted free agent Emmanuel Sanders, tweeted Sunday that the Steelers matched the offer sheet the Patriots signed the wide receiver to last week.

Pittsburgh had until 11:59 p.m. Sunday to match the one-year, $2.5 million contract the Patriots offered. If the Steelers had not matched, they would have received New England’s third-round draft pick this year, 91st overall.
