Miami Dolphins Release Wide Receiver

The Miami Dolphins are parting ways with a veteran at the wide receiver position. The team will release Mohamed Sanu today, a source tells NFL Network's Tom Pelissero:
Sanu is a longtime fixture in the league, having initially been drafted by the Cincinnatti Bengals way back in 2012. He has since seen regular season action for four separate teams, with his best years arguably coming with the Atlanta Falcons, where he tallied 2507 yards and 14 touchdowns across 53 games. He was also the team's second-leading receiver across their outstanding 2016 season, wherein they led the league in scoring and lost a pretty memorable Super Bowl.

Sanu is also infamous for perhaps being the worst trade in head coach Bill Belichick's tenure with the New England Patriots, going for a 2020 second-round pick during the 2019 season before eventually being cut preceding the 2020 regular season. The Dolphins likely saw him as potential veteran depth, but couldn't find room for him in the shadow of tomorrow's 53-man roster cutdown.
