49ers Releasing Mohamed Sanu

The San Francisco 49ers are releasing wide receiver Mohamed Sanu on Tuesday, according to a source. Sanu wasn't needed with some of the team's younger players getting healthy at the position. The 31-year-old veteran will look to latch on with another receiver-needy team with a quarter of the season already in the books. In three games with San Fran, Sanu caught his only target for nine yards. He was a huge disappointment for the Patriots last year after they acquired him from Atlanta, catching 26 passes for 207 yards and a touchdown in eight games in the second half of the season. Deebo Samuel (foot) returned in Week 4 after having foot surgery, while rookie Brandon Aiyuk has displayed nice after-the-catch ability in the passing game, making Sanu expendable.

Mohamed Sanu Sr. Expected To Make Debut Sunday

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Mohamed Sanu is expected to make his debut with the team in Week 2 against the Jets. Sanu last played with the Falcons and Patriots in 2019, where he accumulated 520 receiving yards on 89 targets across 12 starts. The veteran receiver's arrival comes at a good time for a 49ers team dealing with injuries to two of their top pass-catchers, George Kittle (knee) and Deebo Samuel (foot). Sanu's familiarity with Kyle Shanahan should help him get acclimated to San Francisco's offense more quickly, making him a sneaky play in deeper leagues, especially with dates against the Jets and Giants coming up.

49ers Sign Mohamed Sanu

The San Francisco 49ers have signed wide receiver Mohamed Sanu, who last played for the New England Patriots. With Deebo Samuel (foot) on the injured reserve, this 49ers team was in need of wide receiver depth, and Sanu's a solid addition. He's played for head coach Kyle Shanahan before when both were with the Falcons, and a healthy Sanu should be able to contribute right away in this receiving corps. Of course, health is a concern, as Sanu has dealt with an ankle issue that's limited him all offseason. Sanu's an intriguing addition in 14-team leagues.
