BOSTON (WHDH) - The New England Patriots are adding some firepower to their offense.

The Atlanta Falcons have agreed to trade the Pats veteran wide receiver Mohamed Sanu in exchange for a second-round draft pick, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Tuesday, citing league sources.

Sanu has 33 receptions for 313 yards and one touchdown this season. The 30-year-old was taken by the Cincinnati Bengals in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

Tom Brady reacted to the addition of Sanu on Twitter, writing, “See you soon.” Defensive captain Devin McCourty tweeted, “Welcome!!!”

Fellow wide receiver Julian Edelman tweeted a GIF of Drake clapping wildly.

Sanu will likely make his Patriots debut on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns at Gillette Stadium.
