Sanders turned down an offer from the Redskins for an average of $1.35 million last December and an offer of $750,000 from the Falcons two months ago before discovering no other teams were interested.
Meanwhile, wide receiver Tydus Winans, the Redskins' third-round draft choice who had skipped the team's voluntary workouts this week, came to Washington yesterday and appears ready to sign a contract today.
Winans would be the second Redskins pick to agree to a deal. The other was defensive lineman Dexter Nottage, a sixth-round pick.
Tom Condon, the agent for first-round draft pick Heath Shuler, plans to come to Washington today for a negotiating session with general manager Charley Casserly. He hopes to wrap up a deal in time for Shuler to be at the start of training camp next Wednesday.
