    On a pass heavy team that has Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce pulling 98% of the defensive attention, Watkins was "okay" catching passes even with an all-world QB. On top of that, he seems to believe he's worth a lot of money. I don't feel comfortable with any part of that combination.

    If watkins wants to stay in KC he will need to take a haircut ... they have no cap space and he was overpaid by them because they were idiots who over rated his abilities ...

    but i never said they would pay watkins what he thinks he is worth ... however, bringing back danny amendola shoud be a non starter as well ... amendola is basically a 3-4 catch per game guy who basically falls forward for 3 yards after a catch these days... horrible yac ... means he is slow and gets tackled right away... the Pats need someone who can move the ball downfield ... Watkins at 8/9m a year (not that he would take it) is better than amendola at 4m a year

    Amendola comes prepackaged with the whole fit/chemistry/scheme/same-page completely solved. I wonder that is worth to the Patriots FO.

    Yes, I would. I honestly don’t believe I’m worth 12 million, but I’ll get by.

    I have always been a Dola supporter, but he is one player who I think never wants to play for Belichick again.

    I loved the Cooks trade when they first got him, but I was really disappointed in his route running. He basically had two routes, go deep, and stop and come back to the QB. He could have been special had he developed his routes the way AB did.

    I'd pass on Watkins, would definitely prefer Amendola who knows our system and is super clutch.

    Hell yeah! He'll be the #1 here easily given the current choices.

    I'd feel hesitant if they signed him for HALF of his average salary ($16m).

    Give me Amendola at $4.5m per. He's got another season or 2 in him. He just put up 62 receptions, 678 yards with the LIONS, which rival his best season in NE.

    Amendola and Edelman for a last year or two with Brady makes sense. The team should know about Brady at least a week before the new season starts. If Brady is here, Amendola MIGHT come.

    Never ever got the vibe that Brady was all that high on Cooks.

    He’s his kids Godfather when you compare him throwing to Meyers and Harry.

    He’s not a #1 period. Watkins is only useful if there are better options around him that draw the attention away from him. He’s a waste of money.

    I would love to see Amendola return, I just don’t believe he would play for Belichick again.
