The Atlanta Falcons don’t care if you don’t like Mohamed Sanu
Buzz surrounding 26-year-old free agent wide receiver Mohamed Sanu started surfacing on Feb. 29 when Atlanta Falcons’ beat reporter Vaughn McClure reported that the team was very interested in him.
The Atlanta fan base was none too pleased with news, however and did not want to see this deal go down. Unfortunately for that disgruntled section of fans, the deal was made official just 10 days later and the hatred toward’s him has grown as a result.
Pretty much everyone knew the Falcons were going to sign Sanu whether they liked it or not. Some expected him to make anywhere from $4-5 million per season but he was awarded a contract worth $7 million over the course of five years.
This news sent the fan base running to grab their nearest pitch fork.
Despite some fans being agitated over this deal, the Falcons’ franchise really doesn’t care. They don’t make deals based off of what the fan base likes or doesn’t like. They make deals that they think will improve the team and that’s why this deal got done.
Here are a few reasons why signing Sanu was a terrific decision.
