NFL player’s dirty secrets aired out amid bitter divorce

Adam Patrick

After filing for divorce back in October, Gabriella Sanders recently aired a bit of dirty laundry about her current husband and Denver Broncos wide receiver, Emmanuel Sanders. Her claims include the wide receiver cheating on her with multiple women and even lied to the Broncos in order to skip practice and go party.

These unproven allegations were first reported by TMZ Sports a few days ago, so the motive behind Gabriella’s claims seems to be a bit murky at the least.

 TMZ is not necessarily known for publishing material that is 100 percent valid either. They claim that the info came from court documents that were recently filed as part of the couple’s ongoing divorce.

“When he’s not playing football on the field, he ‘plays the field’.”

In the report by TMZ, Gabriella alleges that Emmanuel cheated on her numerous times with other women and even purchased a car for one of these ladies. Even if her claims are true, he still doesn’t crack the list of notoriously hard-partying athletes:

But her one claim that may actually have an effect on Emmanuel’s current profession is the one in which she says the wide receiver lied to the Broncos back in November in order to fly back home and do a bit of partying. According to Gabriella, Emmanuel told Denver that he needed to miss practice so that he could be home for the birth of the couple’s second child.

The child was actually born in December, so Gabriella does actually have a few facts to back up her allegations.

Then again, all of this could just be another case of a bitter woman doing her best to get as much compensation from a divorce as possible (Emmanuel did in fact just happen to sign a contract extension last September that awarded him $27 million in fully guaranteed money).

No one has ever done that before, right Michael Strahan?

If the claims about the wide receiver skipping practice to party actually turn out to be true, would the Broncos be forced to punish him? A suspension seems a bit unlikely, so having Emmanuel pay a fine for his actions is probably the type of punishment the receiver would be subjected to.

Sanders is coming off a 2016 season with Denver that saw him earn a second career trip to the Pro Bowl following his third consecutive season with at least 75 catches, 1,000 receiving yards, and five touchdowns.
