Former Detroit Lions receiver lands with Miami Dolphins

ALLEN PARK – Veteran wide receiver Mohamed Sanu, who spent most of the 2020 season with the Detroit Lions, has signed with the Miami Dolphins by his agent. Miami represents Sanu’s fifth team since 2019.

Sanu appeared in seven games in Detroit. He caught 16 passes for 178 yards and a touchdown, including a two-point conversion reception that year. Sanu spent last season with the San Francisco 49ers, where he caught 15 balls for 177 yards.

He was a 2012 third-round pick between Rutgers and the Cincinnati Bengals. Prior to landing in Detroit, the catcher had solid seasons with the Bengals and Atlanta Falcons. He had 790 yards and five scores in 2014 at Cincinnati. Sanu then racked up for over 1,500 yards with nine scores in 2017 and 2018 at Atlanta.

The Falcons infamously shipped Sanu to the New England Patriots for a 2020 second-round pick. That pick was sent to the Baltimore Ravens and ultimately used on running back JK Dobbins. Sanu had 26 catches and 207 yards in just eight games for the Patriots.

Detroit has seen major changes since Sanu has been here. Former head coach Matt Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn are gone, and quarterback Matthew Stafford is coming off a Super Bowl win with the Los Angeles Rams. The Lions also carried out serious work to redevelop their reception hall. Amon-Ra St. Brown was a breakthrough after competing in the fourth round last year. The team then signed DJ Chark in free agency and traded in the draft to take Jameson Williams to the Pick 12.
