Emmanuel Sanders has been in the NFL since 2010. He arrived in the league as a 3rd-round draft pick with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2010.

He spent 3 years with the Steelers before moving to the Denver Broncos. Sanders joined Kyle Shanahan’s San Francisco 49ers in 2019 but did not last long in the Bay.

Before the start of the 2020 season, he was traded to NFC South Champions, New Orleans Saints, in exchange for a 2020 5th-round pick in exchange for 2020 3rd and 4th-round picks.

Now, Sanders will gear up to go up against his ex-teammates when both teams meet in Week 10.

Emmanuel Sanders looking to pile misery on former employers

Emmanuel Sanders appeared on a recent episode of the Uninterrupted’s “17 Weeks” podcast hosted by former player Nate Burleson.

Here’s what the 33-year-old said with respect to Sunday’s clash against his former team at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. “I’m looking forward to playing against San Fran, but I’m looking forward to kicking their a–.

“When I tell you this, I look forward to kicking their a–. And the reason why is because I got so much love in that organization, for everybody that I know, that they not going to take it hard, right? But it’s competition.

“I’ve been telling Kyle (Shanahan) — I think I spoke with Kyle, I spoke with Wes (Welker), I spoke with Deebo (Samuel), I spoke with [Kendrick Bourne] — and they’ve been talking smack back and forth. And I just want to kick their a–.

“Go back to the locker room, I’ll see you guys later, but I still love you all, but we just kicked y’all a–. “And it’s not fair because they’re missing a whole bunch of [players], but that’s not my problem,” Sanders said on the show.

The Saints are currently at the top of the NFC South Division table with a 6-2 record. Sean Payton’s boys are in top form at the moment after a slow start to their 2020 NFL campaign.

The Saints are currently on a 5-game winning streak at the moment. A win against the 49ers will be the morale boost that the team needs to seal a spot in the Playoffs ahead of rivals, Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
