Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders is certainly happy to be catching passes from NFL MVP Peyton Manning this season saying he felt like he has "made it into wide receiver heaven."

Sanders caught 67 passes for 740 yards and six touchdowns (all career highs) last season for the Pittsburgh Steelers, where he spent his first four NFL seasons.

Sanders signed a three-year, $15 million deal with Denver during the offseason.

“It feels like I just made it into wide receiver heaven,” Sanders said on Sirius XM NFL Radio.

“The thing that I like about the Broncos is there is really no number one guy,” Sanders said. “Peyton always goes with the favorable matchup and that’s what I’m really liking about this offense. Any guy could go off for 180 yards or 100 yards with 10 catches any week based off of matchups.”

BURKE: NFL MVP odds: Who can challenge Peyton Manning in 2014's race?

Sanders will have to compete for catches with the likes of receivers Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker and tight end Julius Thomas on the roster.
