Last year, as an undrafted rookie out of Ohio State, wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher was arguably the star of training camp.
But he might need to have an even better camp this year to earn a spot on a roster that has added been infused with a lot more wide receiver talent.
“We’ve brought in a lot of great guys,” the 5-foot-11, 180-pound Sanzenbacher said. “Anytime you come into a camp, there’s always going to be position battles. Very few guys have the job security to just be able to come in and chill. You know coming in that you’re going to be in for a fight.”
Sanzenbacher’s ability to grasp the offense more quickly than other young players a year ago, and his knack for getting open and catching everything in his vicinity provided an opportunity to play in all 16 games. Despite more drops than expected during the season, he finished fourth on the team with 27 receptions, 1 more than Devin Hester.
