Danny Amendola, WR, New England Patriots
Danny Amendola is a name that should ring a bell for Tennessee Titans fans, as he continuously found holes in the Tennessee defense and picked them apart in the Divisional Round. Amendola was able to haul in 11 balls for for 112 yards that night.
Brady and Amendola have a great understanding of defensive concepts, which is hopefully a relationship Mariota will be able to cultivate with one of his pass catchers as his career progresses.
Amendola might not be the youngest wide receiver on the market (32 years old) and may not be a sexy name like Jarvis Landry and Sammy Watkins, but he is a perfect fit for what the Titans already have in place.
Jon Robinson didn’t use the fifth overall pick on Corey Davis for him to be used sparingly. The goal is for him to be a number one wide receiver lining up on the outside and consistently beating people deep. On the other side, you see Rishard Matthews, who’s more of a physical player that wins with route running, but he also isn’t the player you want to throw underneath to all the time. You need somebody who’s able to win with quickness underneath and pick up a little YAC after. That’s where Amendola fits right in.
If Vrabel is serious about RPOs and getting the ball out quickly, it’s hard for me to see Robinson not at least giving a player like Amendola a call.
