The New England Patriots will use all the talent they have on the roster to win Super Bowls. Mohamed Sanu is one of the many players to share their thoughts on the newly-acquired quarterback Cam Newton. The veteran wide receiver likes his new teammate so much that he even had his first workout with him.
Newton worked out with the wide receiver late Tuesday afternoon at UCLA as shown in a video posted by NFL trainer Drew Lieberman. We don’t really have more details on their workout, but we do know that Lieberman promised to provide more footage.
Both veterans are recovering from their surgeries. The former Carolina Panthers quarterback had a procedure to repair his Lisfranc fracture in the left foot. The Patriots wide receiver had a surgery to fix his high ankle sprain.
Mohamed Sanu was surprised to see Cam Newton come to New England
Earlier that day, Sanu appeared on The Game 92.9, an Atlanta-based radio station. Sanu said he was on his way to a workout on Sunday when he first learned about Newton’s contract with the team. Newton had agreed to a one-year deal with the Patriots and this deal will give him $7.5 million. It’s a deal heavy on incentives and the team better keep him on the roster for a really long time.
Sanu couldn’t believe it at first. He realized later that Newton was actually coming to New England. Sanu is impressed with his drive and determination. Newton has an excellent style and a great workout routine.
The wide receiver has seen Sanu train before and he knows really well that Newton is a high-quality player. He is an excellent person and Sanu looks forward to play with him.
New England traded for Sanu in October last season. They gave up on a second-round pick to get the veteran. Losing a second-round selection was a big sacrifice for the Patriots, but Sanu is worth every bit of it. Well, his first season with the team wasn’t successful. Let’s hope that things will take a different turn for the team in 2020. It’s a big season for Sanu, Newton, Julian Edelman and the rest of the Patriots players. Stidham will have to compete for the starting role in September.
