Schefter adds that “Amendola is a poor man’s, younger, cheaper Welker” and that “it would not be surprising in the least if the Patriots made a run at Amendola” if talks with Welker breakdown.
Amendola, 27, was very solid for the Rams this season, but injuries forced him to miss 5 games. He could end up being a great signing for someone and I’m sure the Rams would love to him back, but previous reports have said that there’s a good chance that they won’t use their franchise tag on him.
We currently have Amendola as the No. 21 best available player in our Top 50 Free Agents List.
