Mohamed Sanu is the latest addition to the New England Patriots' offense, and he's already made a strong impression among his coaches and teammates with 10 catches for 81 yards and a touchdown against the Ravens in his second game with the team.
What's working for him though? And how well is he adjusting to life in New England? The wide receiver made it clear that he's taking the simple route.
“Just been taking things day-by-day, each moment at a time," Sanu told WBZ-TV's Steve Burton on "Patriots All-Access." "You can’t really get overwhelmed by everything, just stay at the moment, stay at your job at [hand] and do your job.”
Here's the full segment, via Twitter:
While it can be hard to adjust to a new environment, Sanu explained that his former teammates from Rutgers have made the transition a much more enjoyable one.
“It made it real easy," he said. "These guys have helped the transition along, helped me along the way, told me how to do things — Steve [Belichick], Duron [Harmon], J-Mac [Jason McCourty]...Those guys are helping big time. It’s helping a lot.”
That's allowed him to have fun on the football field. He said it's just about doing what he loves.
“I’ve just tried to catch up to speed as much as I can and go out there and have fun," he said. "It’s football. Just go out and do it, man.”
While the Patriots don't take the field this weekend, Sanu will most likely play a big role in the offensive scheme for their meeting with the Philadelphia Eagles on Nov. 17. If he continues taking things one step at a time, he'll more than likely pick up the offensive playbook much quicker.
