Falcons sign WR Mohamed Sanu
Thursday March 10th, 2016

The Atlanta Falcons have signed former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu, the team announced Thursday.

The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports the deal is for five years and $32.5 million with $14 million guaranteed.

Sanu, 26, was drafted by the Bengals in the third round of the 2012 NFL draft and had played all four years of his NFL career in Cincinnati. 

He had limited opportunities for playing time behind Bengals receivers A.J. Green and Marvin Jones last year, when he caught 33 of 50 passes for 394 yards in 16 games, four of which were starts.

Sanu will help reinforce the Falcons’ receiving corps after the departure of Roddy White, Atlanta’s all-time leading receiver who was released last week after 11 seasons with the team.
