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 began pursuing Rams free-agent WR Danny Amendola during the three-day negotiating window last weekend. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 13, 2013 A lot of people are linking Amendola to the Patriots as a Wes Welker replacement.

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.
