PLAYERS: Danny Amendola
TEAMS: St. Louis Rams
St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola has admitted that he wouldn’t mind being franchised at the end of this season, opposed to getting a long-term contract. According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the Rams and Amendola’s reps haven’t been working on a contract extension. Both sides should have time once the season is over to working on getting something done.  Of course if they can’t reach a deal, the Rams can slap the franchise tag on Amendola.   var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";

Rams WR Danny Amendola Worthy Of The Franchise Tag?

Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio writes that Rams WR Danny Amendola is “performing at a level that will compel the Rams to apply the franchise tag” on him during the offseason.

He’s clearly out performed that deal and is deserving a long...

Wayne Hunter not surprised about the Jets’ drama

Former New York Jets and current St. Louis Rams tackle Wayne Hunter isn’t surprised at all at the drama that’s followed his former team.
