The Broncos did not make an offer to Eric Decker, who signed a five-year, $36 million deal with the New York Jets last week. The Broncos also signed Andre Caldwell to a two-year deal just before free agency formally opened last Tuesday.
Last season, Sanders was also part of some free agency drama when the Pittsburgh Steelers matched the one-year, $2.5 million offer sheet from the New England Patriots when Sanders was a restricted free agent.
Sanders did have some untimely drops in his four seasons with the Steelers, including one on a two-point conversion attempt in a loss to the Baltimore Ravens this past season.
A source previously told ESPN.com that teams might be leery of offering a long-term deal to Sanders due to medical concerns. He has a screw in each foot, stemming from injuries he sustained in the Super Bowl following the 2010 season.
