NEPD Editor: Mike Loyko

According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh-Post Gazette the Patriots have signed Steelers Restricted Free Agent WR Emmanuel Sanders to an offer sheet. Sanders was in Foxboro on Friday, but it was unknown up to this point if he signed an offer sheet. By signing the offer sheet the Patriots force the Steelers to match the contract offer or give him up to the Patriots. In doing so the Patriots will have to surrender their 3rd round pick (#92) to the Steelers.

Update: Multiple sources, including Tom Curran and Adam Schefter have contradicted the earlier and state that an offer sheet has not been signed.

Free agency is in full swing. The first wave is in the books and the second wave is winding down. We are entering the point of free agency where the good teams like to operate and find bargains that will complement a contending team. The Patriots have been relatively quiet, outside of the Wes Welker/Danny Amendola swap, but there is plenty of movement throughout the league. One thing is certain, the market is softening and there are a lot of veteran players out there sweating it out, trying to find any deal that pays them.

Here are my thoughts on day three of free agency.

The King is dead. Long live the King.

After six memorable seasons with Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, inlcuding hundreds of catches, a couple of drops, and zero rings, Wes Welker is no longer wearing the red, white and blue.

Moving quickly to replace Tom Brady’s favorite target, the Patriots signed 27 year old former St. Louis Rams receiver Danny Amendola.
