The Patriots need a wide receiver, and Mohamed Sanu went to Rutgers.
And since Bill Belichick brings in former Scarlet Knights at a rate unlike any other, that makes it seem perfect.
According to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, there’s mutual interest between the Patriots and the Bengals wide receiver.
Of course, there will be plenty of competition for Sanu in a thinned-out free agent market at the position, so it’s far from a lock Belichick will be able to add to his collection (they have five Rutgers players on the roster right now, which seems low).
And the Patriots haven’t often gone big for free agent wideouts, preferring to fill in the blanks around Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski with mid-level guys.
