Emmanuel Sanders is entering the final year of his contract with the Denver Broncos and a contract extension appears possible.
The wide receiver has said all the right things, claiming that he's leaving talks up to his representatives.
"I don't think it weighs on me," Sanders said of his situation. "I think it weighs on other people and then they talk about [it] and it's like, 'All right, you're trying to put the weight on me.' If I could just keep my ears closed and not listen to the noise, I wouldn't even know this is a contract year.
"For me, it's going to come. If it's meant for me, it's meant for me. But I'm going to keep playing ball because I love to do it."
Sanders, 29, has caught 177 passes and 15 touchdowns over his two seasons in Denver.
