As Kyle Shanahan hinted heavily on Monday, the 49ers are signing former Bengals, Falcons and Patriots wide receiver Mohamed Sanu to a one-year deal, the player’s agent announced on Twitter on Tuesday.

Here’s what Shanahan said when asked about Sanu, who he coached during his tenure as offensive coordinator in Atlanta, on Monday:

“We’ll see how these injuries go, but I love Sanu,” Shanahan said. “Him being out there is always a possibility… I wouldn’t rule that out at all. He’s a guy I really respect.”

Sanu, previously a free agent, arrives in Santa Clara Tuesday for COVID testing. If all goes well he could see the field on Friday for the first time before getting on a plane with the 49ers to New Jersey. Sanu joins a wide receiver group decimated by injuries and with tight end George Kittle dealing with a knee issue that has him questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Jets.

Sanu, 31, had a career year with the Falcons in 2018 gaining 838 yards on 66 catches. Last season was less stellar, gaining a total of 530 yards and being traded to the Patriots midseason.
