Despite a report by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Patriots have yet to sign wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders to an offer sheet. 

The Observer-reporter revealed that Sanders left his visit with the Patriots without an offer.

Patriots Insider Tom E. Curran confirmed that Sanders left New England without a deal.

If the Patriots sign the 25-year-old to an offer sheet, they will surrender a third-round pick to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

In 16 games last season, Sanders caught 44 passes for 626 yards and a touchdown. During his three-year career, Sanders has played in 40 gams making 94 catches for 1,290 yards and five touchdowns.
