Wow whoever did this was a real bag of dicks.

Quote :
Mohamed Sanu thought he was a brand new member of the Cincinnati Bengals. This wasn't a hunch or some inside info whispered into his ear by his agent. The Bengals called him.

Or so he thought.

In some of the weakest sauce ever concocted, the Rutgers wide receiver was the victim of a prank on Thursday night. His phone rang and a person identifying themselves as a Bengals official told him he was the 27th overall pick.

Sanu and his family exploded into celebration -- he was a first-rounder in the NFL. Then the Bengals selected Wisconsin guard Kevin Zeitler.

"This is a great kid, I guarantee you, and someone played a cruel joke on him," Sanu's agent, Mike McCartney, told SI.com's Peter King. "It is unreal that someone would do that, but it happened."

Sanu said he's fine and told McCartney whatever team actually drafts him will get a playmaker. A great attitude to have, but you can only imagine how much this prank must have hurt. Humanity fail.

I'm sure he gets his call tonight. Just shocked that somebody would think this was a good idea.

The world is so damn full of fucktards its unbelievable.

Everyone says/thinks it and I am sure its one of those "in the eye of the beholder" type things but nobody can say this is cool, right?

Hope whoever it was gets hit lightening.

Shawn, I have to admit I laughed at first as well. It was probably AJ Jenkins making the prank call

Yup and personally, I think this is a great spot for him. Dalton may not be a Manning, but this is a good young team. With Green and Gresham, this guy's value has risen IMHO. If they can get a decent young RB, watch out.

good post

Absolutely. Simpson has left town (Not that it really matters.) I expect Sanu to do VERY well.

ROTFLMAO

Mohamed Sanu Very Disappointed To Discover Second Call From Bengals Not A Prank



Quote :
CINCINNATI—New Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu told reporters last week he had been "desperately relieved" to find out a phone call notifying him that Cincinnati had drafted him was a prank, but was later dejected when actual team representatives called to use a pick on him. "I have to admit, it was pretty funny when that kid told me the Bengals were drafting me in the first round, especially when I realized it was a joke," said Sanu, confirming the prankster "really had me going." "But the Bengals calling to say their disaster of a team actually was drafting me, just for a lot less money? What kind of sick human being does that?" Though acknowledging he cried when he first put on his Cincinnati jersey and realized he would be wasting away his youth playing for the Bengals, Sanu took solace in the fact that NFL careers are generally short and his dream of playing pro football would be over soon enough.

Ahhh I've always loved it. The one about the Jags drafting a punter is an instant classic.

The onion created that story, but it was based upon truth. Someone really did call his agent letting him know that the Bengals drafted him in the 1st round as a prank. The irony is that the Bengals actually did draft him just a few rounds later. So the prank call really happened.

I love the Onion. I remember the first time I read it, pre-internet days... I actually had a subscription. It was mailed from Madison.

One of my all-time favorites... Scissors finally beats Rock!

Quote :
The NFL career of Mohamed Sanu began quite awkwardly, but the Cincinnati Bengals rookie appears to have landed in a good place.

Sanu, the Bengals' third-round pick in last month's draft, enters a situation in which Cincinnati has no clear No. 2 receiver behind A.J. Green. Andre Caldwell and Jerome Simpson have moved on, and it appears Cincinnati will go with a youth movement at the position.

Could Sanu slide into the starting lineup in his rookie season? The former Rutgers star has an early fan in Green.

"A lot of people say that he didn't run the fastest, but you see him on the field and he's fluid in-and-out of his breaks, he catches everything with his hands, and he attacks the ball," Green told the Bengals' official website. "He's going to be a special one."

Green said Sanu's style has reminded some within the organization of a standout receiver from the not-so-distant past.

"I'm telling you -- a lot of the older guys here compare him to T.J. Houshmandzadeh," Green said. "He can stretch the field and I think he's really going to help us out this year."

The Bengals would consider themselves lucky if Sanu followed the path of Houshmandzadeh, who had five seasons of at least 70 receptions for the Bengals, including a league-best 112 catches in 2007.

Wow!! I think we can safely pencil him in for WR1 numbers. Move aside Julio. This is second only to that Vernon signing!!! Figure out who owns him and get those offers in!!!!

Sanu is okay... He can be a decent compliment to Julio, and if Hardy can step up in the slot (a role he is suited for) the Falcons passing game should be pretty good. Or maybe they draft a WR and move Sanu to the slot... that would make sense if they hadn't overpaid him by so much that they are almost obligated to start him outside...

Seeing these WR contract #s (and most of the contracts overall) just makes me wonder what someone like Alshon Jeffery could have gotten on the open market...

Yeah, almost everyone is getting overpaid so far this offseason... The NFL and their ever-increasing salary cap are out of control! It's fairly disgusting...
