Emmanuel Sanders celebrates 6-figure payday on short pass from Drew Brees

With little at stake in a blowout win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, Emmanuel Sanders took some time to enjoy a payday.

With 2:11 remaining in the third quarter, Sanders caught a nine-yard pass from Drew Brees to convert a first down. He flipped the ball to the turf, threw his hands up over his head and was joined in celebration by fellow Saints receiver Marquez Callaway.

So why the big deal? It was a relatively meaningless play in a game the Saints led 26-7.

Big payday for Saints WR

It turns out it meant a lot to Sanders.
