Report: Broncos Trade Emmanuel Sanders to 49ers for 2020 Draft Picks

The Broncos traded wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and a 2020 fifth-round draft pick to the 49ers in exchange for 2020 third- and fourth-round picks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Schefter adds that the Broncos were looking to hold onto Sanders for one more week to have him play against the Colts but the 49ers pushed for a move to be made ahead of their Sunday contest against the Carolina Panthers.

Trade interest on Sanders was first reported on Sunday when the Broncos were listening to offers from the Panthers, 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots.

Sanders has 30 catches on the season for 367 yards and two touchdowns.

As noted by Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic, there are no remaining offensive players left from the Broncos' 2015 winning Super Bowl team with the departure of Sanders.
