Michael Spencer of CBS in Denver caught up with new San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders as he left the Broncos facility after learning he had been traded.

"It's hard. Any time you break up, you leave a place, its tough," Sanders said. "We definitely had a great run out here in Denver. I had a lot of great times, but obviously, all good things come to an end. I'm looking forward to get out to San Fran and showcasing my talent and meeting the guys. Hopefully, add my explosiveness, my capabilities to their system, and really try to win."


The 49ers sent third- and fourth-round picks in next year's draft to the Broncos in exchange for Sanders and a fifth-round pick.

Sanders was asked if San Francisco seems like an ideal landing spot for him.

"Yeah," he responded. "We kind of run a similar offense, and just talking to Rich (Scangarello), he was pretty much just telling me that it's the same offense, different concepts, but I'll be able to pick it up easy. So waiting on them to call me right now, and we'll see when I'm going to get out there and get my physical and get acclimated with the system."

H/t to Patrick Tulini for the find.
