The deal can reach $19 million with incentives. He chose the Saints over the Dallas Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers. 

The 33-year-old Bellville, Texas native will be joining his fourth team. He spent the 2019 season with the Denver Broncos and the San Francisco 49ers. 

He went to the Super Bowl with the 49ers, but they elected to let Sanders sign elsewhere. During his short-lived tenure in San Francisco, he appeared in 10 games, including nine starts. 

Sanders also had 36 receptions for 502 yards and three touchdowns. 

Before his trade to the 49ers, he appeared in 7 games, including 7 starts, with the Broncos. He had 30 receptions for 367 yards and two touchdowns. 

Sanders has appeared in three Super Bowls in his career. But he has only won one, which was during the 2015 season with the Denver Broncos when the team defeated the Carolina Panthers, 24-10. 

In his final game with the 49ers in a 31-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in February 2020, he had three receptions for 38 yards. 

In his 10-year career, he has appeared in 144 games, including 104 starts. He has had 601 receptions for 7,893 yards and 42 touchdowns. Sanders has also had 18 carries for 159 yards and one touchdown.
