Sanders credits new diet, feels ‘mentally and physically’ better

Emmanuel Sanders

Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders suffered through a frustrating, injury-plagued season last fall – and he doesn’t intend to have another one.

Sanders, who’s been openly enthusiastic about the addition of quarterback Case Keenum, decided to put his money where his mouth is – literally.

“I’ll tell you what; I changed my diet,” Sanders said. “In the past three months, I’ve been staying away from beef and pork, eating more chicken, making sure it’s wild fish, farm-raised animals. I’m making sure I eat healthy, and it’s paying off – I feel good, I feel lighter.”

“That’s what I attribute it to, I guess, because I feel good… mentally and physically so.”

Sanders has been a standout during the first two days of practice, and praised his fellow wide receivers for pushing one another to be better. He went on to discuss how he and Demaryius Thomas share information with rookies Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton, and how Keenum has brought a renewed confidence to the Broncos’ offense.
