When Emmanuel Sanders signed with the Saints, he put himself in a position to do something unique in NFL history: Sanders can become the first player ever to play in the Super Bowl for four different franchises.

Sanders played in Super Bowl XLV with the Steelers, Super Bowl 50 with the Broncos and Super Bowl LIV with the 49ers. Now he’s with the Saints, who are among the favorites to represent the NFC in Super Bowl LV.

No player has ever played in the Super Bowl with four different franchises, but Sanders is among seven who have played in the Super Bowl with three. Preston Pearson, Bill Romanowski, Rod Woodson, Darrien Gordon, Harry Swayne and Joe Jurevicius are the others.

No matter where he’s been, Sanders has been a part of winning teams. And there’s every reason to believe he’ll be on a winning team again this year in New Orleans.

  1. Remember when the Saints had so much confidence in Drew Brees during the playoffs they would’ve had Taysom Hill in under center A LOT more if they could.. Remember how much better their offense was with Hill playing? First round exit per usual.

  2. Hahaha! The Saints aren’t going to the Super Bowl. When are people going to admit that Sean P is not a crunch time coach?

  3. LOL the Saints aren’t going to catch a whiff of the Super Bowl.

  4. Makes me giggle when people talk about Saints Superbowl. If not for bountygate they can only dream. They will never sniff another one because they are cursed and will keep choking, especially with Brees and bunch of older players.

  5. Maybe New England will repeat history and win the Super Bowl with first year starter. Never count out the “hoodie” On to 2020

    Sean Payton has already won a Super Bowl with the Saints, where he used an surprise onside kick. That should count as “crunch time”, whatever that is.

    Did the Saints trade him to Tampa?
    ========================================
    You mean the Bucs who have no running game and a coach who finds ways to lose games that he should win?
