    Shefter: Pats sign Amendola

    @AdamSchefter
    Lose one receiver, add another: Patriots reach agreement in principle on five-year deal with former Ram Danny Amendola, per league source.

    The Devil is in the details...

    Not to mention that Amendola has to stay healthy.. Something he hasn't been able to do in his career.

    Well, props to whomever had the scoop where the Patriots were considering Amendola in lieu of Welker.

    Per @RapSheet, Amendola gets 5 years from Pats at $31M. $10 guaranteed. Avg: $6.1.

    Remember, he's a lot younger than Welker, at the end of this he'll be about the age Welker is now.

    I feel a little better, but it still depends on the money and how much is guaranteed.

    At least it makes some sense now.

    EDIT: $31M, wow okay, better pay that guaranteed $$ upfront

    Well if he can stay fit this could be one heck of a deal. Fitting for Bradys 5 year deal.

    When Wes Welker was traded to Patriots in 2007, he signed a five-year deal, same length Amendola agrees to with Patriots today.

    LOVE this move. The only downgrade at this moment is there's no chemistry between Amendola and Brady. If people would actually watch his game film and not type "OMG he is tooooo injury-prone" you would see he's almost Welker V2, except younger.

    I expect Amendola to be used differently. He's not even close to as durable as Welker, but he's 1 3/4 inches taller, a little faster, and has better hands. He won't be a great downfield target, but he'll be more of one than Welker for all three of those reasons.
