For the last 24 hours Steelers fans and the team has been waiting to see if the Patriots were going to follow though with an offer sheet to restricted free-agent wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.

The two sides met in New England on Friday, and many felt the Pats would give him an offer after they dumped Brandon Lloyd on Saturday.

Sanders was tendered at a third-round and is due to make $1.3 million in Pittsburgh this year, and the Steelers will have issues matching if Sanders gets a big deal.

Bob Labriola of Steelers Digest reports GM Kevin Colbert said the Steelers haven’t gotten an offer sheet from New England on Sanders yet.

That doesn’t mean it’s not coming, but for now, Sanders is still a member of the black and gold until further notice.
