The New England Patriots needed to upgrade at receiver, and they obtained it mere hours after thumping the New York Jets.
Shorty after a 33-0 rout of Gang Green, New England reportedly acquired wideout Mohamed Sanu from the struggling Atlanta Falcons. The Patriots sent a second-round pick Atlanta’s way for the veteran receiver, who is signed through next season.
Despite the news breaking just past 7 a.m. ET, Twitter was abuzz with a flurry of responses — many of which pointed to the fact that Sanu, like Julian Edelman, actually has a pretty solid arm.
Sanu joins Edelman, Josh Gordon, Phillip Dorsett, Jakobi Meyers, Gunner Olszewski and Matthew Slater at the receiver position. Gordon missed Monday’s win over New York due to injuries.
