Danny Amendola 'likely stays' with Patriots


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(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 | CBSSports.com
(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 | CBSSports.com
(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 | CBSSports.com
(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.


Danny Amendola shut out


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2014) Patriots receiver Danny Amendola, the team's big free-agent acquisition, capped his disappointing season by failing to make a catch in the AFC Championship Game loss. Amendola was targeted once, and he dropped the third-quarter pass.

Danny Amendola still a worthy starting option for Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Amendola, who is coming off a 10-catch, 131-yard effort, has been bothered by a groin injury since the start of the season. He has been able to practice this week and should be ready to roll come Sunday. He has totaled 283 yards and one touchdown over his last five games played.

Although the Ravens did not allow a wide receiver to get in the end zone last week against the Lions, Baltimore has allowed four touchdowns to wide receivers over the last three weeks. Opposing wide receivers have scored 21.86 Fantasy points per game this season against the Ravens. Consider him a solid starting option heading into Week 16.
