Falcons send Sanu to the Patriots

Recommended Posts

Awful lot to give up this late in the season....

May have gotten word that Gronk wasn't coming out of retirement.

Gave up a Late round 2nd AND if they let Sanu walk then they can recoup a comp pick back.

They give up a little to help out their WR depth. 

They won’t get a comp pick until 2022. Sanu is under contract next year.

Gronk himself recently said that wasn't happening.

Figured as much....didn't see him coming back, especially after the weight loss, but I can't help but think that Kraft and Brady wanted him back, and likely were nudging.

I think he himself fueled some of the speculation, honestly.

Of course, he is kind of a dick.

The ONLY person I respect in Foxboro is BB.  The rest can jump off a cliff.

That 2nd will be like early 3rd anyways 

Will still be a top 65 player in the draft next season....that's a LOT to get for Sanu.  Very good trade by the Falcons.

Players that we have gotten around that pick over the past few seasons:

Dante

Moton

Bradberry

He’s a perfect fit for NE.  Great route runner and physical.

Possibly.  If he can't get on the same page with Brady in a hurry it will likely be sunk cost this season.

That system is NOT easy to learn.

Comp picks don't come higher than 3rd round though, correct? So even if they were to get a pick, a second rounder is still preferable to a possible third, and that's IF they don't offset it with another player's signing, right?

They signed some other guy at receiver earlier this season, didn't they?

(I've forgotten his name but I remember someone saying he was a good chess player) :thinking:

Not sure what this comparison is implying. Sanu is about as good of a guy as there is. He is a Torrey Smith.

Correct. It’s a 2020 end of the 2nd round pick for, at best, a 2022 end of the 3rd pick and that’s only if he gets a huge contract at age 32. Likely it’s going to be a 4th or 5th. It’s also more than a rental because he is under contract next year.

It’s still a lot to give up for a guy the Falcons had to cut after the year due to their cap.

He was saying that they do bring in WR's and if they can't pick up the offense the way that Brady likes quickly, they move on.

It was Demaryius Thomas that I think Scot was trying to think of.
