Report: Patriots Trade for Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu

Devon Clements

The New England Patriots are trading a second-round draft pick to the Atlanta Falcons in exchange for veteran receiver Mohamed Sanu, according to the MMQB's Albert Breer. 

New England had reportedly been shopping around for some more offensive firepower before the trade deadline on Oct. 29, and Sanu was one of the players they were allegedly interested in pursuing. In fact, ESPN Insider Adam Schefter noted that the Patriots have been trying to trade for Sanu since before the 2019 draft.

Whether or not you agree with New England sending a second-round pick to the Falcons is another discussion, but Sanu adds a versatile weapon to the Patriots offense who can run the  entire route tree while also playing inside and outside the numbers. 

New England's receiver room now consists of Sanu, Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon, Phillip Dorsett, Jakobi Meyers and Gunner Olszewski.

Big time move

This puts the Patriots over the hump... Just need to find a decent FB to clear the lane for a running game.

Of course it was ok for Patriots to give up a 2nd. Going for the title and need to be aggressive even if it was a round to early for the pick.

Should be a fire sale in Atlanta. Here's guessing the Falcons will use that 2nd round pick to get another wide receiver. Sanu, is a big, physical target that is an ideal #2. Great 3rd down and red zone weapon with his size. Comes to play every game.
