WR Mohamed Sanu will make his 49ers debut Sunday against the New York Jets, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. Sanue's signing was made official Friday after WR Richie James was placed on IR.
Sanu will see snaps for the receiver-needy 49ers. San Francisco lacked veteran depth to complement the younger receivers, and Sanu brings that and proven success from his time with the Bengals and Falcons. Sanu is not a play this week, but we should have a better idea of his role after Sunday.
