Sanders split his 2019 season with the Denver Broncos and San Francisco 49ers, and found himself in the Super Bowl, where the Niners fell to Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. Between the two teams, the 33-year-old combined to total 66 catches for 869 yards and five touchdowns. Denver sent him out west at October's Trade Deadline, as he compiled 36 catches for 502 yards and three touchdowns over 10 games with the Niners.
The Saints already had a dynamic offense, with the threat of Brees to Thomas through the air, and Alvin Kamara on the ground, but more options will only help Brees. Tight end Jared Cook also came through for the 2019 season, where the Saints won the NFC South with a record of 13-3 before falling to the Minnesota Vikings in the Wild Card Round. Over his 10-year NFL career, which began with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Sanders has 601 catches for 7,893 yards, and 42 touchdown receptions.
