The Atlanta Falcons have traded wide receiver Mohamed Sanu Sr. to the New England Patriots.
The wide receiver posted a message confirming the trade on his Twitter account thanking the Falcons for the opportunity to play for them.
ESPN's Adam Schefter was first to report the trade early Tuesday morning. The Falcons traded Sanu in exchange for a second-round pick.
NFL Network's Ian Rapaport reported the Falcons and Patriots first tried to make the trade back in April during the draft.
The Falcons signed Sanu to a 5-year, $32.5 million deal in 2016. In four seasons with the team, Sanu caught 225 passes for 2,507 yards and 14 touchdowns.
