Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Building chemistry with Matt Ryan
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sanu has impressed Falcons' quarterback Matt Ryan with the strength of his hands during offseason workouts.

Sanu has occasionally struggled with drops through his first four seasons, but is aiming for a breakout campaign after signing a five-year contract with the Falcons in March. With star teammate Julio Jones surely commanding the bulk of opposing defenses' attention in the passing game, Sanu should have plenty of opportunities to capitalize on single coverage underneath as Atlanta's new No. 2 wideout. Although the 26-year-old Sanu has only reached the 50-catch, 500-yard plateau once so far, his offseason work with a Pro Bowl-caliber passer like Ryan should ease his transition into a new offense this season.

Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Signs with Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Falcons and Sanu agreed to terms of a five-year contract Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Sanu was slated to visit Atlanta and New England in the search for a new home, but the terms of the contract -- $32.5 million, with $14 million guaranteed, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network -- likely made the decision an easy one. Moreover. Sanu will now work opposite another wideout from the class of 2011, Julio Jones, which should afford him plenty of chances to make a mark. In four seasons with the Bengals, Sanu accounted for 152 catches (on 251 targets), 1,793 yards, and 11 touchdowns in 57 games.

Mohamed Sanu: Visiting with Falcons and Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mohamed Sanu will visit the Falcons and Patriots on Thursday, ESPN's Josina Anderson reports.

The Bengals already lost Marvin Jones to the Lions, but that doesn't necessarily mean they'll try to retain Sanu, who posted a 33-394-0 receiving line on 50 targets in 2015. Best known for his usefulness on trick plays, Sanu hasn't shown much ability to separate from NFL cornerbacks. He could make a fantasy impact with the receiver-needy Falcons, but he probably wouldn't be any more than a No. 3 or 4 wideout in New England.

Bengals' Mohamed Sanu: Set to hit free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mohamed Sanu can become an unrestricted free agent in March, ESPN.com reports.

Sanu is useful for trick plays, but his inability to get separation from cornerbacks severely limits his value as a receiver. Regardless of where he lands, there isn't much fantasy upside, as it's hard to imagine that any team would view him as anything more than a No. 3 or 4 wide receiver. The Cincinnati Bengals are believed to have interest in retaining Sanu, but No. 2 wideout Marvin Jones -- also an impending free agent -- will likely be the greater priority. Even if Sanu is re-signed and Jones isn't, Sanu would likely be no better than the fourth or fifth option in Cincinnati's passing game.

Bengals' Mohamed Sanu: Totals 17 yards receiving in Wild Card loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mohamed Sanu secured three of five targets for 17 yards in Saturday's 18-16 Wild Card loss to the Steelers.

The fourth-year pro had a quiet game as the Cincinnati Bengals ' third wideout option, a fitting end to a season that saw his passing game role deemphasized with the return of teammate Marvin Jones to full health. Sanu tallied a solid 56 receptions on 98 targets in 2014 while Jones sat out the season with foot and ankle injuries, but those numbers fell to 33 and 50, respectively, in 2015. Sanu also failed to get into the end zone all season, and with his rookie contract now expired, may have played his last game in a Bengals uniform.
