Patriots Receiver Open To Take Pay Cut To Stay On Team

63 days ago

New England Patriots receiver Danny Amendola is expected to re-work his contract for second time in three years in order to give the team some much needed cap space and stay with the team for the 2017 season. 

CSNNE’s Mike Giardi tweeted late Sunday evening with more details:

Despite playing well in the Super Bowl, Amendola simply isn’t worth the money he is set to make next season. His current contract has a base of $6 million dollars, which is simply too high for the Patriots considering his recent production. 

Considering his recent injuries and the fact that the Patriots have other good receivers in Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell on the roster already, it's understandable why the team plans to ask him to take a pay cut. 

With additional options including No. 1 receiver Julian Edelman, tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett (a free agent), and several pass-catching running backs, and the Pats should have plenty of receiving options even if Amendola doesn’t return in 2017.

The last time Amendola restructured his contract was in March of 2015, where he cut his pay down to a max of $15 million a year for three years with added incentives. This was while he served as the No. 3 WR during the 2014 season.
