Danny Amendola expected to sign with Dolphins

Danny Amendola (80) appears to be headed to Miami.

Amendola has taken pay cuts over the last several years to remain in New England, but it was the other way this offseason and the Patriots didn't want to pay that much to a 32-year-old slot receiver.

Danny Amendola is staying in the AFC East, just not with the Patriots. The Dolphins also reportedly agreed to sign former Chiefs receiver Albert Wilson to a three-year deal the NFL Network says is worth $24 million deal.

The Dolphins cleared millions in salary-cap space and needed wideout talent to replace Landry, who was traded to the Cleveland Browns last week.

Amendola averaged 9.4 FanDuel points per game last season, with 61 catches (86 targets) for 659 yards and 2 touchdowns in 15 games.

One of his more memorable moments of the season, to Dolphins fans, was an altercation with Miami cornerback Bobby McCain when the teams met in November.

Amendola is a nine-year veteran who broke into the league as an undrafted free agent out of Texas Tech in 2008. He's a slot receiver who spent most of past year on the practice squad. The bad news - it doesn't look like it will be with the New England Patriots. During four seasons with the club, he hauled in 124 catches for 1,544 yards and seven touchdowns. Leonte Carroo seems to be the odd man out.
