    Pioli just indicated that Josh may prefer Amendola (presuming that he doesn't re-sign). I suspect that the team has talked to him over the past few days.

    That's crap we dropped the ball Denver picked it up. Amendola production under JM = 1 game, 5 receptions and 48 yards if he prefers that over Welker never mind being fired by Kraft he should be executed by a firing squad.

    There were a few teams interested in Danny Amendola: Patriots and Broncos were among them. Now, Broncos are set. So...

    When it comes to player personnel opinions, Josh should be way down on the list of people the Pats braintrust should listen too.

    I hope Amendola doesn't sign here. If they weren't willing to spend for quality in Welker, I hope that means they're shifting offensive philosophy away from his type of position almost entirely.

    lol lets be honest here. josh prefers ****, he prefers who they give him.
    I hope they sign amendola because i like him a lot, only issue is injurys but we may get lucky.

    amendola is not nearly enough tough, especially with his injury issues.

    in general, it's a bear market for slot WR's this year......

    also, this is what pioli said of welker:

    “This is so complex,” said Pioli on the NFL Network. “There are so many different stories going on here. David Dunn, the agent for Wes Welker, has picked a team and a situation [in the Denver Broncos] that can certainly tweak the Patriots. This is very intentional; whether it’s true or whether it’s not true, it’s is very intentional and that’s what agents unfortunately do.

    I think the pats wanted to lower the cost of their slot guy so that they could spend more on an outside guy......and that they are trying to go away from having a slot guy be their promary target and that wasn't going to happen as long as welker was here.

    I believe that if they wanted welker to be here, that he would be here

    Yup. They offered him a home town discount contract that he probably wouldn't sign. Then, they sign Amendola and look for another wide receiver.

    $6m for Welker is peanuts.

    There is no outside guy to give that money to. He doesn't exist. Chad Ochocinco was here, and he got almost Welker money.

    The Welker contract is only 2 years so it's not like it would have precluded them from signing an outside guy.

    If Amendola comes here, what are the chances that his contract will be close to what we could have kept Welker for?

    I mean, if Amendola's contract is even half of what Welker gets then I'm going to struggle with understanding that move.

    If this is true, why didnt they do it last year instead of giving him an inflated 1 year contract?

    Well, this is going to test the "Trust in Bill" crowd. Sounds like a big loss of safety blanket for Tom Brady. Amendola will not be the same..

    because it's just not as simple as 1 guy 1 contract.....and every guy is different

    mankins got really mad and is still here........wilfork played for the tag and he's still here.....welker decided he didn't like how he was treated, so he left.

    So your saying other wide receivers could have played through a dislocated elbow with torn ligaments and a broken collar bone?

    He actually came back from his broken collar bone quickly.

    He's four years younger 2 inches taller and faster than Welker? If he comes for 2-3 million I think that would be about right. If he doesn't break his collarbone and elbow in each of the past two years he is going for Welker money for 4-5 years. Unfortunately for him his two injuries came at a bad time.

    I think Amendola would be a great fit here, I think the question is his durability...he has been fairly injury prone

    Welker has been freakishly durable throughout his tenure here...either way, I dont think we need to replace welker with a slot guy..

    we already have Slot guys in Hernandez/Gronkowski...we need to replace him with an outside guy

    if the pats want to go all out I want Greg Jennings....with him/lloyd on the outside it would open the inside alot more for hernandez/gronk.

    then go and re-sign edelman to play as a #3 WR

    I'm sure they'll be at least 1-2 games a year where they're all healthy at the same time. Maybe the Patriots can sign Ahmad Bradshaw and Mario Manningham, too.

    Is this guy even any good? All I keep hearing is that he is injury prone. Why the interest?
