Emmanuel Sanders Turning Heads in Training Camp

July 28 09:35 PM

Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has been displaying eye-opening speed in training camp, according to scout.com.

Fantasy Spin:
   Sanders says he's always been fast, but didn't have as much of an opportunity to show it because of injuries and because straight-line speed is not as relevant in the slot where Sanders mostly played. "In the past two years I've had two foot surgeries and I had a torn knee," he said. "That's all lower body. And for the first time I'm actually healthy. Have I gained some speed? Could that be the reason why? Potentially. When a guy has two foot surgeries, he can't run. A guy has knee surgery, he can't run. So this off-season I had a full off-season of working hard. I got to do whatever I want: squat, run as much as I wanted to. And it feels good." With Mike Wallace taking his talents to South Beach and Heath Miller trying to come back from three torn knee ligaments, Sanders is primed for a big year.
