2016 NFL free agency: 10 players the New Orleans Saints should target
Name: Mohamed Sanu
Age next season: 27
2015 Team: Cincinnati Bengals
2015 Cap hit: $1,682,813
Like Rueben Randle, Sanu is another wide receiver overshadowed by exceptional talent (A.J. Green, and others). Sanu is also another wideout, who if in the right system, could shine.
At 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, Sanu boats an ideal frame for a receiver, particularly as a big man in the red zone. The Rutgers product is not especially fast, but he gets great separation on his routes to create space, while using his hands and athleticism to go up for the ball.
He hasn’t been known to stretch the field, however, the New Orleans Saints already have speed demon Brandin Cooks for that. Willie Snead also has a set of wheels on him.
Sanu could undoubtedly flourish with Drew Brees and the Saints. His Bengals teammate, Marvin Jones, is another enticing option in the free agent market. However, Sanu will likely be more affordable. Plus, Brees can make anybody around him better.
