Jacksonville Jaguars[edit]

The Jacksonville Jaguars chose Sanders in the fourth round, with the 101st overall pick, of the 2013 NFL Draft. He registered his first career reception in Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs. His first career punt return came in Week 4 against the Indianapolis Colts.

On December 5, 2013, in a Thursday Night Football game against the Houston Texans, Sanders threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to running back Jordan Todman on a trick screen play. The Jaguars went on to win the game, 27–20. On December 15, he scored his first touchdown reception against the Buffalo Bills.

Sanders finished his rookie season with 484 receiving yards on 51 catches with one touchdown, one pass for 21 yards and a touchdown, three kick returns for 140 yards, 25 for 140 yards on punt returns (with 16 fair catches) all in 15 out of the 16 regular season games.

Sanders's second season got off to a bad start as Sanders was suspended for the first four games of the 2014 season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. He was re-activated on October 4, 2014, ahead of the Jaguars' Week 5 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers.[4]

On July 17, 2015, Sanders was waived by the Jaguars.[5]
