Patriots free agency: 6 things we hope happen
Today is one of the biggest days on the NFL calendar: the beginning of free agency. Before the frenzy begins, here are six things we hope happen in New England Patriots free agency:
6. Sign Mohamed Sanu
Sanu earned the top spot in our ranking of the top 22 targets in Patriots free agency. Here’s what we said:
"Sanu is insanely athletic, versatile and capable of playing the Patriots’ offense. At this point in his career, Tom Brady really needs another infusion of offensive talent to have at his disposal; Sanu fits the bill. He can take handoffs, stretch the field on deep passes, and throw passes himself. Plus, Sanu comes from the Rutgers pipeline that Bill Belichick is so fond of. In fact, Sanu is the only Rutgers product in the NFL who is hitting free agency. What also makes Sanu the Patriots’ top free agency target is his relatively low cost compared to many of the other players you’ve read about in this ranking."
This writer really, really hopes the Patriots nab Sanu sooner rather than later (Sanu-er rather than later… har har).
