Danny Amendola Expected To Leave Patriots, Sign With Dolphins

Danny Amendola Expected To Leave Patriots, Sign With Dolphins

The veteran slot receiver is expected to sign with the Miami Dolphins, one of New England's AFC East rivals, once NFL free agency begins Wednesday afternoon, a source told Dan Hellie of NFL Media. He added 57 receptions for 709 yards and six touchdowns in 13 playoff games, including a pair of victories in the Super Bowl. When the financial figures are released, it might be easier to understand why they declined to match the offer for a player who couldn't fill a fulltime role for the length of the year.

But the 32-year old has battled numerous injuries throughout his career, and that includes a series of concussions.

The wide receiver has spent the last five seasons with the Patriots.

Amendola will join former Kansas City Chiefs wideout Albert Wilson as a new weapon in a Miami offense which is undergoing a makeover after Jarvis Landry was traded to the Cleveland Browns.

Amendola, 32, is a nine-year National Football League veteran with 426 career receptions and 19 touchdowns. Amendola, Wilson, Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker to be the top pass-catching options.

Free agents can not officially sign with teams until NFL Free Agency begins on Wednesday at 4pm, but this news will certainly be hard to take for New England fans.
