So, Danny Amendola wasn’t a reaction to Wes Welker‘s exit, after all.
According to Tom E. Curran, the Patriots and the former Rams receiver agreed to the five-year deal on Tuesday — not Wednesday when the signing was leaked. That being said, Curran believes that the Pats had likely already moved on from Welker and went after Amendola when No. 83 went on the market.
Check out Curran’s tweets below.
Interesting news: Amendola signed with the Patriots on Tuesday. NE did not react to Denver, they made choice when Welker went to market— Tom E. Curran (@tomecurran) March 14, 2013
With Amendola ready to sign and Welker seeking 8 to 9 million and making visits, Pats moved on Amendola rather than drag feet and lose out.— Tom E. Curran (@tomecurran) March 14, 2013

I'm as heartbroken as anybody right now. Watching Wes Welker leave for nothing more than an average contract has to make you think that the Patriots have something up their sleeves... RIGHT??
Well according to SI.com, Bill Belichick's master plan will not include free agent CB Nnamdi Asomugha. The teams interested include the 49ers (seriously, where are they getting...
On the heels of a report that Wes Welker was considering leaving New England after they low balled him on their offer, enters Bill Simmons. The rumor mill continues.
Before you say, "Isn't he a columnist/podcast host/pop culture/grantland creator/nba tv guy?" remember that Simmons does have connections in the sports world. How can he not at this point?
He often references...
The easy thing is not always the right thing. That is the hardest part about running a successful NFL franchise. Unless you’re Bill Belichick, that is.
The hoodie and his minions — and/or staff — have always been very much about putting the business first. While some teams add players to try and liven up their fan base or re-sign guys based off emotion and sentimentalism, Belichick...
