ATLANTA (CBS46) – The Atlanta Falcons traded wide receiver Mohamed Sanu to the New England Patriots in exchange for a second-round pick, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The Patriots have been trying to trade for wide receiver help for quarterback Tom Brady. Schefter reported the Patriots wanted Sanu since before this year’s draft.

With the Falcons going nowhere this season, the team looks to be starting to build for next season. The Patriots are all in for this year as quarterback Tom Brady may not have many seasons left. The combination led to the Falcons sending Sanu north.

For the Patriots, who destroyed the New York Jets Monday night, it’s another offensive weapon for arguably the best team in the league.
