Patriots wide receiver Mohamed Sanu appears in a new video working out with a custom-made, high-tech football launcher at a home with a massive backyard. Watch him in the above Instagram post by The Sideline Hustle.
Sanu has been out of a walking boot since mid-May after recovering from offseason ankle surgery. The Patriots acquired the receiver from the Atlanta Falcons for a second-round pick during the 2019 season.
In the video, Sanu works out with the “Seeker,” made by Dallas-based sports robotics and software company Monarc. The machine simulates punts by launching the football high in the air and over the house, where Sanu waits in the backyard to make the catch. The Seeker is also shown simulating regular quarterback throws.
Sanu is not the only Patriots receiver to work with Monarc equipment. On Sunday the company posted a video of sophomore wideout N’Keal Harry working with one of their machines in “Gauntlet Mode.”
Patriots receivers have been active with offseason workouts, based on videos and reports. Julian Edelman is reportedly a regular at private sessions with quarterback Jarrett Stidham, as well as Gunner Olszewski and Damiere Byrd. According to Mike Giardi of the NFL Network, Edelman is extra motivated to prove doubters wrong in the 2020 season.
Sanu is a regular training partner with The Sideline Hustle, which offers personalized training programs for wide receivers. Founder/CEO and former college quarterback Drew Lieberman has worked with other notable NFL receivers, such as the Bucs’ Mike Evans and the Packers’ Davante Adams.
