Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders’ tour of NFL teams stopped at the Chiefs on Friday and it is set to continue over the weekend.
Multiple reports indicate Sanders will travel to San Francisco for a visit with the 49ers as long as he doesn’t reach a deal with the Chiefs or another one of the teams he’s visited since the start of free agency. Sanders, No. 39 on PFT’s list of the top 100 free agents, has also paid visits to the Buccaneers and Jaguars.
The 49ers have re-signed Anquan Boldin to go with Michael Crabtree, Quinton Patton and Jon Baldwin at wide receiver, but the team’s making it fairly clear that they want more at the position before the start of next season. They’re visiting with Julian Edelman and there’s been talk of interest in Hakeem Nicks as well. It may just turn out to be a question of which target says yes to the 49ers’ offer first.
Whether that’s Sanders will likely have to do with what the other teams on his spin around the league are offering. The Jets are also reportedly interested in Sanders’ services, though there’s no known date for a visit.
