James Sanders visiting the Falcons

Just hours after James Sanders was released by the Patriots, he has other teams in hot pursuit.

First in line are the Atlanta Falcons, who will meet with Sanders on Tuesday, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Sanders, who was a starting safety for the Patriots before getting cut in a surprise move, is an unrestricted free agent, and Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff, who previously worked for the Patriots, is well aware of what Sanders can do.

A 2005 fourth-round pick of the Patriots, Sanders will — unlike most of the players cut this week — likely have his choice of free-agent contracts.

    I bet the Lion’s game had something to do with this.

    I’m surprised the Eagles didn’t want him.

    The guy is a solid safety whos release shocked a whole lot of patriots fans.

    Like I said.

    Quality player…

    I think the Raiders should give him a shot, given the fact how bad their secondary is right now…

    Classy move by the Patriots to release this guy.

    I’m sure they could have gotten a late round pick or two in trade.

    Now, he gets to sign with whichever team he wants.

    I agree, the Raiders needs some serious help in that secondary. I think the biggest thing they need to look at is CB though. If Chris Johnson doesn’t play well or gets hurt again, they are in trouble!

    lets mention Sanders is out of Fresno State same draft as Logan Mankins….worked his butt off from I believe a 7th rounder…Solid kid that brings his lunch box.

    He’s a steady player. But for some reason former Patriots don’t usually fair very will. Use caution.

  16. homelanddefense says: Aug 30, 2011 9:46 AM

    still pissed the Patriots let this guy go! I wish him nothing but luck.

  17. CKL says: Aug 30, 2011 11:14 AM

    If he signs w/ Atl he will be the SECOND Pats safety who wore #36 to get cut and end up in Atlanta. Though with Milloy it was his second stop after the Pats.

    If you could put Sanders brain in Merriwethers body you would have an all-pro safety. Smart guy, unfortunately he doesn’t have the physical tools to get the job done on a consistent basis. Sanders is a bit too small, a bit too slow, not quite strong enough. Just watch him struggle to get someone to the ground when tackling in the open field. Not one of his strengths.
    If he were white they would label him an “effort player”. I like him and wish him the best, he was well respected on the team. but just know that you are not getting Ed Reed if you sign James Sanders.
