Found February 18, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The St. Louis Rams and wide receiver Danny Amendola are “far apart in terms of what it will take to re-sign him,” according to Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The Rams recently waived wide receiver Titus Young, who was claimed off waivers from the Detroit Lions. His departure puts even more focus on the team’s re-signing of Amendola and fellow free agent wide receiver Brandon Gibson. To put the situation into perspective, if the Rams are unable to sign either player they would have only three wide outs under contract; Austin Pettis, Chris Givens and Brian Quick. Still, head coach Jeff Fisher wouldn’t overreact to the news, noting that the team has options beyond Amendola and Gibson. Fisher told reporters that while the team wants Amendola back, there are options on the free agent market and through the draft. Amendola returned from injury to catch 63 passes for 666 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games for the Rams this season.
