Dolphins Signing Former Patriots Receiver Danny Amendola

Dolphins Signing Former Patriots Receiver Danny Amendola

New England Patriots receiver Danny Amendola is expected to sign with the Miami Dolphins, NFL Network reports.

The 32-year-old is coming off his best season as a Patriot finishing with 61 catches for 659 yards and two touchdowns, but made his biggest impact in the postseason by hauling in 26 passes for 348 yards and two touchdowns.

Wide receiver Danny Amendola thrived with Tom Brady and the Patriots.

It's a stunning development, as most analysts assumed Amendola would return for another season in New England if he elected to keep playing.

Amendola is also an experienced return specialist, which could mean he'll push receiver/returner Jakeem Grant for his role.

Free agents can not officially sign with teams until NFL Free Agency begins on Wednesday at 4pm, but this news will certainly be hard to take for New England fans.

Miami is overhauling its receiving corps this offseason after trading Jarvis Landry to the Browns and agreeing to sign former Chiefs wideout Albert Wilson.

Amendola becomes the second receiver the Dolphins have reportedly agreed to terms with since the free agent negotiating period opened on Monday.
