Mohamed Sanu: Patriots weren't good fit, 49ers culture more my 'style'


For the first time since signing with the 49ers, wide receiver Mohamed Sanu spoke to the media and addressed his stint with the Patriots, which lasted only half a season.

Sanu was released by the team the week rosters needed to be trimmed to 53 players.

"I feel like it just wasn't a good fit," Sanu said to reporters. "Things happen the way they happen, and I'm not really looking to the past. I'm just focused on what I've got here in San Fran. I'm excited just to be a part of this team.

"This culture is just more my style. So, I'm excited for it. I'm just taking full advantage. I'm grateful for my time in New England. It taught me a lot. It just didn't gel out how I wanted."

In six games with the Patriots last season, Sanu finished with 26 receptions for 207 yards and a touchdown, but 10 of those catches came in his first game against the Ravens.

Sanu had offseason ankle surgery, but did not make noticeable strides during training camp.
