Saints release wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders

After just one year with the team, the New Orleans Saints are releasing veteran wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.

The 34-year-old confirmed his free agency on Instagram earlier today, while also apologizing for not bringing a Super Bowl to New Orleans.

Sanders caught 61 passes for 726 yards and five touchdowns during the regular season and tacked on an additional 51 yards in the post-season.

Sanders was set to make $8 million in 2021, two million of which was guaranteed.

With his release, the Saints will save at least $4 million against the salary cap.
