Miles Sanders, former Penn State RB, sends message to Philadelphia Eagles fans on social media
Miles Sanders knows that he is unlikely to be resigned by the Philadelphia Eagles following the expiration of his rookie contract. The former Penn State running back has spent 4 years in Philadelphia after being selected in the 2nd round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
And the writing is on the wall after the Eagles signed former Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny earlier Tuesday afternoon. Following the signing, Sanders sent out a message to Eagles fans on Twitter thanking them for 4 strong years in the City of Brotherly Love.
To the city of Philadelphia Thank You from the bottom of my heart. 🏾

Assuming this is it, where could Sanders end up?
Assuming the Eagles will not resign Sanders, there are plenty of options for his next potential landing spot. Chicago immediately comes to mind, as the Bears could still be deciding on paying David Montgomery to stay with the team for next season. Sanders, a veteran with good numbers as of late, could be an interesting piece to add in the Windy City alongside Khalil Herbert. Buffalo and Denver would make sense as well.
Sanders has totaled 3,708 yards, 20 rushing touchdowns and 3 receiving touchdowns across his 4-year career, averaging 5 yards per carry.
