With each catch during the past three weeks of the Bengals voluntary workouts, WR Mohamed Sanu is emerging as solid go-to guy with his big body and big hands to match his family's big dreams. Offensive coordinator Jay Gruden doesn't know how much Sanu will end up playing or where. But he does know he's dealing with a guy much older than his 22 years.
"He just has a natural instinct to be a big, friendly target; he knows what he has to do to get open," Gruden says. "A lot of guys when faced with a route adjustment round it off and it allows the route to get jumped for an interception. But he's got the ability to stick his foot in the ground, make the right shade or angle and get that 12-yard completion."
It sounds as if Sanu is impressing in his audition to be the Bengals' WR2 in 2012. Stay tuned.
