Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders on reworking contract: 'No way Jose'

Denver has until the March 12 deadline to exercise Sanders' option for 2019.

Emmanuel Sanders isn't interested in restructuring his contract.

The Broncos wide receiver took to Twitter on Tuesday to respond to speculation that Denver could re-work his deal, saying he refuses to consider that option.

"It ain't happening," Sanders wrote. "No way Jose."

Sanders tore his Achilles tendon during practice on Dec. 5 and missed the end of the regular season. He's scheduled to count $12.94 million against the salary cap in the final year of his contract, though the Broncos would save $10.25 million by cutting him.

Denver has until the March 12 deadline to exercise Sanders' option for 2019.

Sanders, 31, finished with 71 catches for 868 yards and four touchdowns through 12 games last season.
