Danny Amendola took big pay cut to stay with Pats
Danny Amendola took a big pay cut to remain with the New England Patriots, reports The Boston Globe’s Ben Volin.
Amendola, a 30-year-old wide receiver who will enter his eighth NFL season in 2016, will earn a maximum of $1.6 million this year, which is a pay cut of $4.4 million from his last deal. He also took a pay cut last season, which was for $2.3 million in cash and $2.6 million in cap space.
Amendola originally signed a five-year, $28.4 million contract with the Patriots in 2013, with $10 million guaranteed, but then had his deal derailed by injuries and a reduced role on the team.
In 14 games last season, Amendola collected 65 receptions for 648 yards and three touchdowns.
