Report: Patriots shopping Danny Amendola

According to Dan Pompei of Bleacher Report,  the Patriots have been shopping wide receiver Danny Amendola in hopes of trading him.

NFL teams say the name of Danny Amendola has been floated in trade talks. The Patriots signed the wide receiver to a five-year, $28.5 million contract last offseason, but Amendola struggled to stay healthy and did not have the kind of impact the team envisioned him having. Amendola caught 54 passes for 633 yards with Tom Brady throwing to him. He had two better seasons when he played in St. Louis with Sam Bradford throwing to him. There has been speculation the Patriots could cut Amendola if a deal cannot be worked out.

It sounds like the Patriots realized after this season that Amendola wasn’t the replacement for Wes Welker that they thought he would be.
