Emmanuel Sanders has something to prove to Broncos or someone else

Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders is signed through the 2019 season, but he knows he isn’t certain to be in Denver that long.

There’s no more guaranteed money on Sanders’ contract, which led to some discussion early in the offseason about the team possibly moving on without him. They didn’t go that route, but did draft a pair of receivers and Sanders said no one knows what situation might play out over the next year.

I always play like that, like it’s always year-to-year, Sanders said, via Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic. I got something to prove this year and if I don’t prove it to the Broncos, then I’ll be proving it to some other team. But at the end of the day, God willing, I stay healthy, I’ll be in the NFL next year as well. That’s the goal. I don’t worry about what team. I’m working for the Denver Broncos this year and I’m going to do my best to try to bring a Super Bowl to this city.

Kershaw pitched a 1-2-3 first inning, then worked around leadoff singles in the second and third. The red-hot Javier Baez led off the fourth with a double, then came around to score on a two-out RBI single by Addison Russell. In the fifth, Kershaw struck out Ian Happ looking with a 90-mph slider, struck out Kyle Schwarber swinging with a curveball in the dirt and retired opposing starter Jose Quintana on a weak comebacker.

For the most part, Kershaw said, there’s definitely some things to be encouraged with today.

Washington, Scandrick said on NFL Network, via the Dallas Morning News. I know Dez can still catch touchdowns. I know he can still be a great red zone threat, and I would love to play with him again.

Bryant’s fit in Washington was discussed following his release as Bryant said he’d like to play the Cowboys twice during the 2018 season, but the presence of Jamison Crowder, Josh Doctson and Paul Richardson at receiver doesn’t make adding a receiver an obvious need for the team.

A report last month indicated that Bryant, who turned down an offer from the Ravens, is willing to wait until the start of training camp to find the perfect fit, a winning organization and a team willing to do a one-year, prove it deal.
