Pats open to trading Danny Amendola
Saturday, March 1, 2014, 12:34pm
NFL teams say the name of Danny Amendola has been floated in trade talks. The Patriots signed the wide receiver to a five-year, $28.5 million contract last offseason, but Amendola struggled to stay healthy and did not have the kind of impact the team envisioned him having. Amendola caught 54 passes for 633 yards with Tom Brady throwing to him. He had two better seasons when he played in St. Louis with Sam Bradford throwing to him. There has been speculation the Patriots could cut Amendola if a deal cannot be worked out.

Danny Amendola may avoid groin surgery
Saturday, January 25, 2014, 11:41am
It seemed like a near certainty that Danny Amendola would eventually need surgery to repair the groin injury he suffered during the season opener.
But it is currently believed that the New England Patriots wide receiver can heal through rest, according to a source. So Amendola's once inevitable trip to the operating table will be circumvented – at least for now.
Amendola was outplayed by free-agent-to-be Julian Edelman, though the groin injury certainly played a role. If Edelman returns, Amendola's upside will be somewhat capped even if he is 100 percent healthy in 2014.

The Week 1 groin injury limited Patriots WR Danny Amendola all season. He didn't meet expectations in Year 1 in New England, but it's important to remember how much pain he played through. Year 2 -- provided he's healthier -- should be better.
Julian Edelman is a free agent and his status will greatly impact Amendola's upside in 2014.

WR Kenbrell Thompkins (hip) has been downgraded to out.

The rookie wide receiver traveled with the Patriots to Baltimore, according to a source, making it possible that his three-week absence due to a foot sprain comes to an end Sunday. While there is no guarantee that he plays, it's worth noting that Dobson did not travel with the Patriots for last week's game against the Miami Dolphins.
