WATCH: Two-time Pro Bowl WR Emmanuel Sanders is headed for Great Team

Emmanuel Sanders is headed for San Francisco. The two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver confirmed the move to CBS Denver as he left the Denver Broncos team facility on Tuesday.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Broncos (2-5) get a third and fourth-round 2020 draft pick as the 49ers (6-0) get 32-year-old Sanders and a 2020 fifth-round draft pick.

“Obviously it’s hard any time you break up,” Sanders told KCNC-TV as he left the facility. ” … We had a great run out here in Denver, a lot of great teams.”

Sanders was drafted in 2010 by the Pittsburgh Steelers. He became a free agent following the 2013 season, then signed with the Broncos. In his first season with Denver, Sanders made his first career Pro Bowl.

The following season, Sanders helped the Broncos to their Super Bowl 50 win under new head coach Gary Kubiak. Sanders was the leading receiver in the game with six receptions for 83-yards as Denver defeated the Carolina Panthers 24–10.

This season, Sanders has 30 receptions for 367 yards (good for 12.2 yards per catch) with two touchdowns.

The 49ers host the Panthers (4-2) Sunday while the Broncos visit the Colts (4-2).
