Atlanta Falcons receiver Mohamed Sanu Sr. had a tough season last year. In 16 games, he had 33 receptions, 394 yards and no touchdowns. But with a new team and an off-season full of  hard work, Sanu is looking to have a bounce-back season.

The 6-foot-2, 215-pound receiver has been working with Seth Minter and Steven Gonzalez of The FootDoctor Sports, and they have been pushing him to get his foot speed and agility better than ever. In the videos below, you will see Sanu performing Resisted Sprints and crazy footwork drills.

 

In the next video, you will see how all of his hard work has already helped Sanu during Falcons training camp practices. Each drill that he performed this summer targets something specific, whether getting off the line of scrimmage or running a sharp route. The FootDoctor has prepared Sanu for on the field scenarios.

 

Opposing defensive backs will be targeting the Falcons' No. 1 receiver Julio Jones, causing Sanu to get a lot of of attention from quarterback Matt Ryan. That's when his new and improved footwork will really pay off.
