Danny Amendola reportedly impressive during OTA’s

New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez told SiriusXM NFL Radio that he’s been impressed with Danny Amendola so far.

“I think Danny is going to do a great job. He looks good so far this year,” Hernandez told host Zig Fracassi, via ESPNBoston.com. “I think he’ll fill the role pretty well.”

Mike Reiss of of ESPNNewEngland.com has been hearing great things about Amendola.

Hernandez’s viewpoint seemed to reflect what reporters saw last Tuesday at the Patriots’ organized team activity, as Amendola often was the first receiver through drills and looked as quick as advertised.

If Amendola can stay healthy, he has the chance to be a big upgrade over Wes Welker.
