It’s always interesting to find out how a player will fit in with his new team after being traded? And it’s safe to say Mohamed Sanu was excellent in his second game with the New England Patriots. Sanu hauled in 10 receptions for 81 yards and 1 touchdown. That’s more catches than he had in any game with the Atlanta Falcons this season and it’s a promising sign. Clearly Tom Brady trusts Sanu which is surprising considering they’ve had very little time to hash out their rhythm and timing.
If this is what we can expect from Sanu every week then he’s going to have a huge role within this offense. Josh Gordon is out of the picture and New England needs someone to step up and fill those shoes. If Bill Belichick didn’t believe Sanu was up to the task there’s no way he would’ve traded for him. A second round pick isn’t a very cheap price either. The Patriots gave up some of their precious draft capital in hopes of getting the fire power they need to win a Super Bowl. For Sanu it’s definitely an upgrade because not only is he playing for a contender. There’s a real opportunity to reinvent himself and that means his value could sore. So this is the complete opposite situation as he was in with the Falcons and expect his output to pickup. After two games the Sanu trade appears to be a home run for New England.
