The Atlanta Falcons have had a problem getting star receiver Julio Jones in the end zone in 2017. Evidently, he just needs Mohamed Sanu throwing the ball.
The Falcons went in to their bag of tricks and had Sanu line up as a quarterback. Looking at his pass, you wouldn’t know that he’s not a normal quarterback.
Wait. WHAT?!@Mo_12_Sanu is tossing TDs!

Trick plays like that don’t normally work that way for most teams.
Occasionally, the defense will be fooled and the receiver will be wide open. But non quarterbacks don’t tend to do well when throwing into traffic.
But Sanu has a knack.
Mohamed Sanu has a perfect 158.3 passer rating in his career.
He is 6-6 for 228 yards and 3 TD.

Maybe don’t wait too long to utilize this weapon again, Falcons.
