Ian Rapoport reports that Amendola receives $31 million and $10 million guaranteed. He’ll average $6.1 million.
We had him listed as the No. 17 best available player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
With Wes Welker reaching an agreement with the Denver Broncos, Amendola figures to be in play for them. He’s reportedly seeking around $6 million annually, but given that the market for slot receives is pretty bad right now, New England should be able to him for less than that.
Pro Football Talk reports that the Rams could try to re-sign Amendola now that his asking price appears to have dropped.
He’s a very good player when healthy, but injuries have really limited him over the course of his career. I’m sure teams are factoring this into their offers. The Eagles are also believed to have interest.
Mosher adds that it’s “unclear how hard” Philadelphia will pursue Amendola, but they are clearly monitoring the situation.
A report from yesterday indicated that Amendola will be not be re-signed by the Rams and the Eagles have come up as a potential landing spot in recent weeks.
Former Rams OC Pat Shurmur now holds the position with the Eagles, so there’s at least one prominent coach with experience working with him.
