Amendola to test free agency

by Paul Raymond | Posted on Thursday, February 28th, 2013

It looks like the St. Louis Rams won’t be breaking the bank for wide receiver Danny Amendola. Ian Rapoport of NFL.com says the Rams have decided how much they’ll spend and it’s no where close to what the franchise tag would be. So on that note you can expect the speedy, slot receiver to hit free agency and see what’s out there.

I’m not quite sure what Amendola will command on the open market. He’s been a very good receiver, 59 catches and 639 yards over 10 games in 2012. The problem, if you haven’t noticed, is that he only played ten games. Over the past two seasons he’s only played in 11 games, so he’s got a length injury history already.

What team is going to pay anything close to the franchise tag for a guy who can’t stay on the field? I doubt anyone. Rapoport says there’s about five teams that are interested in him, which should help him make at least $6 million, pretty easily.

The Patriots make a lot of sense if they let Wes Welker go but after Tom Brady restructuring his deal I don’t know if that happens. Now for the 49ers make a lot of sense could give Colin Kaepernick another weather.

There’s always a chance he winds up back with the Rams too, it just depends who believes he’ll stay healthy and cuts the biggest check.
