Mohamed Sanu is officially off the free agent market. The former Lions wide receiver has agreed to a one-year deal to head back to the San Francisco 49ers, per his agent Mike McCartney.

Sanu split the 2020 season between the 49ers and Lions, starting in San Francisco before joining the Lions for the final seven games. The veteran played well in Detroit, starting four games and hauling in 16 receptions for 178 yards and a touchdown.

The 31-year-old has 420 career receptions in a long career that began in 2012 with the Cincinnati Bengals. He was a draft classmate of WR Marvin Jones, who started for the Lions for the past five seasons before heading to Jacksonville as a free agent.
