If you ask me, tight end and offensive line help were bigger needs even before the Patriots got Mohamed Sanu. But it can't hurt to infuse the Patriots offense with talent and Sanu is the kind of receiver who should fit right in with what Tom Brady likes to do.
Brady is most certainly excited about the Pats' newest trade acquisition, as evidenced by his latest tweet Tuesday morning.

It would be surprising if the Patriots were done adding before the trade deadline, which hits Oct. 29. Getting Ben Watson back helped at tight end, but it would be nice to see them get a more reliable blocker than Ryan Izzo and a more durable player than Matt LaCosse. They could also use a more reliable tackle for the left side, even if it's a backup for Isaiah Wynn, because Marshall Newhouse is showing why he's bounced around the league in his career.
But getting Sanu is no doubt huge news for a Patriots team that, in the grand scheme of things, has very few holes to fill.
