This reaffirms reports from yesterday about both the Patriots star tight end and presumed number one wide receiver. While we hate reading too much into descriptors, the use of "highly" adds some heft to Howe's statement. A few weeks ago, no one would have predicted that Danny Amendola would be much closer to ret...
