Patriots Could Move On From WR Danny Amendola After The 2014 Season

 

According to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, Patriots WR Danny Amendola will have to produce “big numbers” this year in order to be back with team following 2014 season.

Volin mentions that Amendola will have to generate at least 80 catches, 800-plus yards, and stay healthy to convince the team to retain him for a third year.

New England signed Amendola to a five year, $28.5 million contract that included $10 million guaranteed last year. There was a lot of speculation that the Pats could part ways with him this offseason, but they would have taken a $6.8 million cap hit by releasing or trading him before June 1.

Amendola, 28, is likely to receive a second chance given that the team has already paid him a $2 million roster bonus.

However, he’ll still need to show signs of improvement during training camp as New England locked up Julian Edelman to a multi-year contract and brought in Brandon LaFell in free agency.

In 2013, Amendola caught 54 receptions for 633 yards receiving and two touchdowns over the course of 12 games.
