The Philadelphia Eagles haven’t officially closed the door on a Miles Sanders’ return. But, with free agency right around the corner on March 15, there hasn’t been much talk on a contract extension for their 1,000-yard rusher. In fact, it seems like a lock that he’ll be wearing a different uniform in 2023.

Sanders, coming off his first Pro Bowl season, has been linked to various teams in free agency. The Miami Dolphins are the trendiest name making the rounds, along with the Arizona Cardinals and Chicago Bears. Surprisingly, there has been little to no chatter of the Eagles opening up their checkbooks. His projected market value has been estimated at $7.2 million per year (via Spotrac).

Sanders has been relatively quiet about his future except for a funny “love” note to Howie Roseman. He definitely wants to come back. However, it doesn’t appear to be shaking out that way and he seemed to confirm it in a cryptic Twitter post on March 10: “Chasing anonymous love.” He also re-tweeted something from Courtland Sutton that raised eyebrows.

Ay, it’s all love from Philly, 26. Appreciate you. Whatever happens I hope it works out best for you.

Eagles fans were quick to flood the comments with words of encouragement and support. Sanders did everything that was asked of him during his contract year in 2022, setting new career highs in rushing yards (1,269) rushing touchdowns (11), and rushing attempts (259). He ran with a noticeable chip on his shoulder last season. And he’s not reaping the rewards.

I just want to be where I’m wanted and appreciated.

The “anonymous love” quote sounds like a clear reference to a very public message he sent out to Roseman, via ESPN’s Tim McManus. His goal has always been to sign a long-term contract with the team that drafted him 53rd overall in the 2019 NFL draft.

“I love Philly. Just bring me back,” Sanders said on January 18. “I hope they bring me back,” Sanders said. “I love you [general manager] Howie [Roseman]. I hope you love me too.”
