After signing Danny Amendola earlier this week, the Patriots have added another free agent wide receiver to their roster Friday. Former Buffalo Bills wideout Donald Jones has reportedly signed with the Pats after visiting New England on Thursday.
The 25-year old Jones had 41 catches for 443 yards and four touchdowns last season, his best numbers since joining the Bills in 2012, before his year came to an end because of a medical issue not related to football.
The signing adds increasing speculation as to whether or not the Pats will retain the services of Brandon Lloyd, who is due a $3 million contract bonus if he remains with the team beyond this Saturday.

As the NFL free agency period continues with a bevy of moves made across the league, many St. Louis Rams' fans knew once the team decided to sign free agent tight end Jared Cook to a five year deal that fan-favorite wide receiver Danny Amendola would not be back with the Rams next season.
The Rams were smart to let Amendola walk
Amendola received a monster deal from the New...
The New England Patriots officially announced the signing of free agent Danny Amendola today. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
According to reports from Mike Reiss of ESPN and Tom Curran of CSNNE.com, the Patriots actually signed St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola on Tuesday, one day before Wes Welker signed with the Broncos and before the Pats announced the agreement with Amendola. The Patriots and Amendola agreed to a five year, $31 million deal with $10 guaranteed, supposedly on Wednesday. However...
There might have been other factors at play, but on Wednesday, the New England Patriots essentially decided that they'd rather have Danny Amendola on their roster than Wes Welker. The deal Amendola signed with New England pays him a higher annual salary than the one Welker inked with the Denver Broncos, and is nearly as valuable when it comes to guaranteed money.
So, we all assumed that the Patriots saw that Wes Welker was being offered two years, $12 million by the Broncos and refused to match that low offer.
Apparently, that wasn't the case. They didn't care because they had already signed Danny Amendola, this didn't happen yesterday when we heard about it. It happened two days ago?

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.
I wish this was about the guy not in a cast
We posted on the Patriots interest last week and Adam Schefter is now reporting that the Patriots went on to pursue Danny Amendola in free-agency.

Patriots Replace Wes Welker with Danny Amendola | PlayerPress.com - Sports Commentary, News, Rumors, Blogs, Photos, Videos by Pro Athletes and Fans
It did not come as too much of a surprise when the New England Patriots did not resign wide receiver Wes Welker. What did come as a surprise is who they replaced him with—St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola.
Fair or not, the production of Wes Welker and Danny Amendola will be compared throughout the 2013 season.
On Wednesday, Welker signed with the Broncos after six seasons with the Patriots — five of those seasons ending with more than 100 receptions. Welker will attempt to recreate the success he had in New England with Peyton Manning while the Patriots will look to Amendola, who...
The Patriots are moving in a new offensive direction.
Wes Welker is now officially on his way to join the Denver Broncos, meaning the Patriots need a new weapon in the slot. That guy appears to be St. Louis Rams receiver Danny Amendola.
Amendola, who was productive in the slot for the Rams over the past four seasons, has been in contact with the Patriots already, according to Adam...
It seems like Wes Welker was always Patriot, especially to younger fans, but the fact of the matter is he only played 6 seasons for the Patriots. Fans seem to have forgotten about Welker's arrival to Beantown, but Bill Barnwell of Grantland has not, as evidenced by this article. He makes many interesting points in this article, but two really stand out in helping to ease the...
