According to Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports 1, wide receiver Danny Amendola and the New England Patriots have agreed to a restructured contract. The deal is for two years and worth $7.35 million, with an additional $750,000 available in roster bonuses and incentives.
A restructure had been rumored for awhile, as Amendola would have counted $6.5 million against the cap and the Patriots added wide receivers Chris Hogan and Nate Washington to a now-surprisingly deep receiving core.
Garafolo received a statement from Danny Amendola, as well:
"It's an honor to play for this franchise and with this group of guys. We have one goal—to win another championship and that's all we care about."
Last season, the 30-year-old caught 65 passes for 648 yards and three touchdowns. He also provided depth on the special team return units after Julian Edelman went down with a broken foot.
Needless to say, this is a great move for the New England Patriots and Danny Amendola.
