Sanders, who will turn 32 next month, is scheduled to count $12.94 million against the salary cap of the Broncos in the final year of his deal, per Pro Football Talk.
Denver will have to decide by March 12 to exercise his option for 2019, which would trigger a $1.5 million full guarantee of his salary, according to Mike Klis of News 9.
The team can save $10.25 million by cutting Sanders who made 71 receptions on 868 yards and four touchdowns in 12 games last season. He added a rushing touchdown and a passing touchdown.
