Q: Adam, do you think that the Pittsburgh Steelers will match the offer sheet for Emmanuel Sanders? They can't afford to lose another wideout after Mike Wallace left in free agency, right?
-- Sandra (Kentucky)
A: Great question, Sandra. My sense is they will, especially having already lost Wallace to the Dolphins. It would be difficult to make Ben Roethlisberger throw to that many new wide receivers. And the money shouldn't be a huge issue. The one-year offer sheet is worth $2.5 million. For Pittsburgh, it will be more of a philosophical decision than a financial one. My sense is the Steelers will match, though New England wouldn't have put together the offer sheet if it didn't think it at least had a chance to get him.
