Report: Patriots retool final three years of Danny Amendola's deal


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2015) The Patriots have restructured the contract of wide receiver Danny Amendola, according to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports on Thursday. Amendola's new base salary will be $12.75 million over the final three years of his deal, though he can max at $15 million.

Amendola, 29, appeared in all 16 games for New England last season, registering 27 receptions for 200 yards and a touchdown. He also caught three touchdowns in the postseason, including one in the Super Bowl against the Seahawks. Amendola has not logged more than 690 receiving yards in his six seasons in the NFL.


Danny Amendola catches pair of touchdowns in win over Ravens


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2015) Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola had five catches for 81 yards and two touchdowns in New England's 35-31 win over the Ravens Saturday.

Amendola caught his first touchdown when quarterback Tom Brady found him in the endzone for a 15-yard strike. The second came after Brady threw a backwards pass to receiver Julian Edelman, who then found Amendola streaking down the field for a 51-yard touchdown to tie the game in the third quarter.

It was Amendola's best receiving game of the season and only the second time he surpassed 50 yards receiving.


Danny Amendola fills in capably


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/21/2014) Getting a chance for extensive playing time with Julian Edelman sidelined by a concussion, Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola took over as quarterback Tom Brady's preferred underneath route runner, leading the team with 11 targets. He caught a season-high eight passes for 63 yards.

The Patriots are notoriously tight-lipped about injuries, so no one can say for sure if Edelman will also miss Week 17 against Buffalo, but it's nice to know Amendola can step in with similar numbers if he does. For Edelman owners, he's worth adding as handcuff in case Edelman can't go, and in PPR leagues, he might be worth adding whether or not you own Edelman.

Just understand that, like Edelman, you shouldn't be counting on him for big yardage, just lots and lots of opportunities.


Danny Amendola, Brandon LaFell each crack 60-yard mark Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) With Julian Edelman sidelined with a concussion, Patriots wide receivers Danny Amendola and Brandon LaFell each contributed with 60-plus-yard performances in Sunday's win over the Jets in Week 16.

Amendola had a season-best eight catches for 63 yards on 11 targets. LaFell came down with seven of the 10 passes thrown his way for 64 yards in a 17-16 victory.

New England will close out the regular season at home against Buffalo.


Report: Patriots' Julian Edelman will not play Sunday vs. Jets


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) Sources indicated Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman did not travel with the team to New York and will not play Sunday against the Jets, reports the Boston Herald.

Edelman was listed as questionable with a concussion. In 14 games, Edelman has 92 receptions for 972 yards and four touchdowns.

With Edelman out, wideout Danny Amendola could be in line for more playing time. Amendola has 15 catches for 113 yards and one touchdown in 14 games.


Brandon LaFell leads Patriots WR corps in Week 11


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Patriots wide receiver Brandon LaFell led his position group with 62 yards on three catches in Sunday's 42-20 win over the Colts in Week 11.

The Patriots ran roughshod over the Colts, and when Tom Brady hooked up with his teammates on passing touchdowns, they went to the tight ends. LaFell did his damage on just four targets. Julian Edelman led all Patriots players with five catches and eight targets but managed just 50 yards in the game. Danny Amendola kicked in 13 yards while catching both of his targets.

The Patriots are set to face the Lions at home in Week 12.


Patriots Danny Amendola, James Develin do little Week 9


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Patriots wideout Danny Amendola and fullback James Develin did little Week 9 against the Broncos. 

Amendola hauled in two catches for 35 yards. He received three targets during the contest. Develin also caught two balls, gaining 13 yards. 

Both players are on a bye Week 10. 


Patriots backup pass catchers do little Week 8


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) The Patriots backup pass catchers did little Week 8 against the Bears.

Tight end Timothy Wright actually turned in a strong performance, hauling in seven receptions for 61 yards and a score. He caught all seven of his targets. Julian Edelman only hauled in one pass, gaining 14 yards. Danny Amendola was able to catch two balls, but only gained 5 yards.

The three will look for more Week 9 against the Broncos. 


Patriots' backup pass-catchers contribute Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) The Patriots received contributions from a number of players Week 7 against the Jets.

Brandon LaFell led the way, hauling in four passes for 55 yards. He finished third on the team in yardage, and was targeted five times. Danny Amendola caught one pass, but made it count. In the fourth quarter, Amendola scored on a 19 yard reception from Tom Brady. Amendola should have had a better game, but had a couple catches taken away due to penalties. Brandon Bolden also caught one ball for 4 yards. 

They'll look for more Week 8 against the Bears. 


Danny Amendola returns in second quarter


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(10/5/2014) Patriots receiver Danny Amendola, who left early in the second quarter with a head injury, returned later in the period after being checked by the medical staff.

Danny Amendola leaves with head injury


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(10/5/2014) Patriots receiver Danny Amendola left the game against the Bengals early in the second quarter with a head injury. Pass interference was called on the hit, which left Amendola unsteady as he walked to the bench.

The team said he is questionable to return.


Kenbrell Thompkins, Danny Amendola hardly factor


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/21/2014) Patriots wide receivers Kenbrell Thompkins and Danny Amendola each got just one target Week 3 against Oakland, and the only one to do anything with his was Thompkins, who caught a 16-yard pass.

Thompkins had five catches in Week 1, and Amendola had three. The two have combined for just one since then. 


Danny Amendola does little in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola barely figured into the game plan in Week 1's 33-20 loss to the Dolphins Sunday.

Amendola was targeted five times in the game, good for just sixth on the team. He brought three of those passes in for 16 yards in the loss. The Patriots face the Vikings in Week 2.  


Danny Amendola especially impressive in joint practice


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(8/6/2014) Patriots receiver Danny Amendola was especially impressive in Tuesday's joint practice with the Redskins, reports the Boston Globe. He had five catches and two touchdowns in team drills, including a 35-yard score in the corner of the end zone with corner EJ Biggers in coverage.

Injuries limited Amendola to 12 games last year. At this point he looks 100 percent healthy.


Patriots hoping for rebound year from Danny Amendola


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/4/2014) Patriots receiver Danny Amendola wants to focus on this season and put 2013 behind him, reports the Boston Globe.

After getting a nice $6 million signing bonus and $10 million guarantee last year, Amendola was pretty much the same player for the Patriots as he had been for the Rams: occasionally great, often banged up. In 12 games, he caught 54 passes for 633 yards and two touchdowns — right in line with his best two other seasons, when he had 666 and 689 receiving yards.

"I don't really even think about it," Amendola said of last season. "I’m totally focused on the future. Really optimistic, and really excited."

Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said Amendola having a year in the system with Tom Brady will help.

"Danny's not dissimilar to the rookies," McDaniels said. "He wasn't here before, and he had an opportunity to get a foundation and a system last year. And now it's his second year, and it will be exciting to see Danny's growth. Any time you're in your second year in a system, you're more comfortable. We're excited to see what he does."

The report says if he doesn’t produce big numbers — think at least 80 catches, 800-plus yards, and a clean bill of health — then Amendola is all but gone after 2014, when he doesn't have as much dead money left on a contract that runs through 2017.


Danny Amendola more at ease entering Year 2


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(5/7/2014) Receiver Danny Amendola, a disappointment in his first year with the Patriots, seems more at ease entering Year 2, reports the Boston Herald

"The more experience you have, the better,” Amendola told the paper. "I'm feeling great. I'm anxious and ready to get back out on the field in OTAs and have a good offseason, have a good break after that, and come to training camp ready to go."

Danny Amendola 'likely stays' with Patriots


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/12/2014) On Tuesday, $2 million of Danny Amendola's $3 million base salary became guaranteed, reports the Boston Globe. That means the Patriots receiver "likely stays" with the team after disappointing in 2013 with 54 catches for 633 yards and two touchdowns.

Danny Amendola decision due Tuesday


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/9/2014) The Patriots must decide by Tuesday whether to keep receiver Danny Amendola. That's when $2 million of Amendola's $3 million base salary becomes guaranteed if he's still on the roster, reports the Boston Globe.

The paper notes Amendola's cap number of $4.6 million isn't excessive, "and the Patriots shouldn’t have a burning need to cut him."


Report: Patriots seeking to swap Danny Amendola


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2014) Disappointing wide receiver Danny Amendola could be on the trading block, according to Bleacher Report. He is also a possibility to be waived after June 1, a move that would allow the Patriots to save $1.375 million toward the cap.

Amendola managed 54 receptions for 633 yards and just two touchdowns in 12 games last season and was a non-factor in the playoffs.


Patriots have decisions to make at receiver


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/14/2014) The Patriots have to make some decisions at receiver this offseason, reports the Boston Herald

The first is deciding to pay free agent Julian Edelman. The report says Edelman might want a contract similar to what Danny Amendola got last season (five years and a max value of $31 million). But the Patriots will probably offer Edelman something similar to their offer to Wes Welker (two years, $10 million). Based on that, the report expects Edelman to chase the money elsewhere.

Amendola is safe this offseason despite a down year, but he could be released after the 2014 season if he struggles again. The team hopes the three second-year receivers of Aaron Dobson, Kenbrell Thompkins and Josh Boyce continue to develop, and getting Rob Gronkowski (ACL) back at 100 percent is vital.

The Patriots also could look at receivers in free agency, especially if Edelman leaves, and they could be in play for Eric Decker, Jeremy Maclin or Hakeem Nicks. Or if Edelman returns, the Patriots could still add someone like Brandon LaFell, Nate Burleson, Riley Cooper or Kenny Britt.


Report: Danny Amendola likely to need surgery


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/27/2014) Despite reports that Patriots receiver Danny Amendola wants to let his groin injury heal with rest, ESPN.com reports the injury "seems likely to require offseason surgery." The website says the injury affected Amendola all season and that a better barometer of his ability will come in 2014, "assuming he stays healthy."

Danny Amendola a candidate to be cut?


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/26/2014) Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola could be a candidate to be cut this offseason, according to the Boston Globe.

The Patriots may run into some issues with the salary cap, which could make Amendola expendable. Amendola would count as $4.8 million against the cap, but the team could opt to make him a post-June cut, which would lessen the burden for next year. If he's cut after June, Amendola would count as $1.2 million against the cap in 2014. The team could try to use that extra money to sign Julian Edelman, who emerged as the number one option with the club this year. 


Danny Amendola eschews surgery on groin


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2014) Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola has decided not to opt for surgery to fix a groin problem that plagued him this season, per MassLiveSports. He is planning on allowing it to heal with rest.

Amendola missed four games this season, which he finished with 54 catches for 633 yards and just two touchdowns.


Groin injury to blame for Danny Amendola's slow season


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/22/2014) A big reason for Danny Amendola's poor first season with the Patriots was a groin injury he suffered in Week 1, ESPN.com reports. Amendola hurt himself against the Bills in the first game of the year, missed the next three games and was not a regular contributor the rest of the way. After getting 104 yards on 10 catches in that game against the Bills, Amendola finished the year with 633 yards on 54 catches with two touchdowns, falling way short of expectations. 

ESPN expects his second season with the Patriots to be much more productive, assuming he can stay healthy. That's a problem since he's played 16 games once in six seasons. 


Tom Brady declines to rate Danny Amendola's season


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/20/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, asked on his radio show how he'd rate receiver Danny Amendola's first season with the team, demurred. "You know, it’s not for me to evaluate, our coaches do all that," Brady said, per ESPN.com.

"He worked really hard, fought through a pretty tough injury (groin) early in the year, did everything the team asked of him. I really enjoyed working with him. It will be great to have another offseason with him, and Aaron Dobson, and KT (Kenbrell Thompkins) and (Josh) Boyce."

Amendola caught 54 passes for 633 yards and two touchdowns in the regular season. He did not make a catch in the AFC Championship Game.
