This is probably better than having Welker at $10 million+/year, but I would still rather have Welker for 6 million/year for two years than this guy making the same money per year over 5 years. Main difference is that Welker would more than likely average 1200+ yards and 110 receptions with the Patriots. I think the Patriots would be lucky to see near that sort of production from Amendola, even if he is healthy.

Amendola might be a good addition for the Patriots, and if he, Gronkowski and Hernandez can stay healthy, this passing offense will be lethal. But that's a huge if. I think they need a little bit more depth if they're not going to have a go to guy like Welker on the field.
Only 1/3 of Amendola's money is guaranteed.

I don't believe in coincidences. So: Welker leaves Patriots for $6M per year in Denver. Danny Amendola signs for $6.1M per year #Math


My response

@RapSheet Amendola signs for 5 years, 31 million. That's 6.2/year, not 6.1. #Math


Bahaha

That's true. But it won't help us next year if at some point we don't have a lot of healthy decent receivers.

Lateral move is lateral.

Works for me if they want to keep doing the same old stuff they've been doing.

Amendola is 1 taller, .07 faster in a 40, and had two drops compared to Welker's 15 last year.

He's not going to have the same number of catches, but he should be more useful down the field.

And hey, at least they're replacing their players that leave Wink

Pollard won't even need to be on the field to injure this guy.

Ecstatic he's not a Ram anymore, but I wouldn't be happy with my team paying this much for a severely injury-prone slot WR.


The injury prone WR seem to be getting paid a lot this offseason.

If this is the case, what, did they just wait to see what Welker's contract was, then add 1M on top of it? LMAO

I don't really know how to wrap my brain around this. He better stay healthy and he better produce.

Just feel like Belichick has to be the smartest guy in the room. He better be this time.
