The 49ers just made themselves legitimate Super Bowl contenders.
They traded a third-round pick and a fourth-round pick to the Denver Broncos for wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and a fifth-round pick, according to Mike Klis.
Emmanuel Sanders has to be traded to SF with 5th round pick in exchange for third and fourth round pick. Elway gets great value. #9sports

Here is a statement from John Lynch: “Emmanuel is a passionate football player whose toughness and competitive nature have helped him become a dynamic playmaker in this league. He possesses a number of qualities, on and off the field, that we value in our players. His familiarity in a similar offensive system will allow for a quick transition. We are excited to add Emmanuel to our roster and look forward to seeing him positively impact our team.”
When healthy, the 49ers’ biggest weakness is their passing game. Sanders is a good wide receiver who only will make the 49ers better. If their passing game continues to struggle, you can’t blame the receivers.
What do you think of this trade? I think it’s excellent.
