WR Danny Amendola expected to sign with Dolphins, according to reports

Amendola finished the 2017 season with 61 receptions for 659 yards and two touchdowns, and earned the nickname "Danny "Playoff" Amendola" by adding another 26 catches for 348 yards and two scores during the postseason. The contract with the Miami Dolphins will reportedly be a two-year deal once the official deal is completed.

The Dolphins need help at receiver after trading Landry to the Cleveland Browns for a 2018 fourth-round pick and a 2019 seventh-round pick after not being able to agree to terms on a long-term deal with the three-time Pro Bowler.

At the age of 32, Amendola did everything that he could for the Patriots, but he will now be financially rewarded for all of his hard work in the league - deservingly so.

Amendola played 49.9 percent of the offensive snaps in 2017, a result of the team losing receiver Julian Edelman to a torn ACL in the preseason and Chris Hogan missing seven regular-season games with a shoulder injury.

Amendola's market was cooking earlier this offseason, to the point where it had an early appearance that he'd be priced out of New England. Louis Rams. He racked up a career-high 85 receptions and 689 yards receiving in his sophomore season with the Rams.

Danny Amendola will not be back for a sixth season with the New England Patriots. Obviously, the Patriots' best offer wasn't in the ballpark. They may address that need through another signing or the upcoming draft in April.
