James Sanders wasn't out of work long. Released by the Patriots on Monday, Sanders signed with the Atlanta Falcons on Tuesday. Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff was with the Patriots when Sanders was drafted back in 2005 so that was a likely factor in the signing. To go froma perennial playoff team in New England to an impressive franchise in Atlanta is a good deal for Sanders, a 27-year-old who always handled himself professionally here in New England. Tom E.
