Bob Sanders Gets a Well Deserved Payday December 29, 2007Posted by Marquis Chapman in Football, NFL, Sports.
On Friday, Indianapolis Colt’s safety Bob Sanders signed a five-year, $37.5 million contract extension, making him the highest paid safety in the NFL. The safety is expected to receive $20 million in guaranteed money. Sanders is the machine that drives the Colt’s defense and is the main reason why the Colts are ranked #1 in the NFL against the pass.
Standing only 5’8”, Sanders more than makes up for his height with his hard hits and explosiveness against the run, and has shown improvement against the pass. Players are starting to fear him, and his style of play rubs off on his teammates. Although he may not regarded as the best safety in the NFL hands down, it’s only a matter of time.
