#Patriots save big time with Danny Amendola’s new contract

Could you imagine Amendola and Edelman as police officers?

Danny Amendola took a nice pay cut to stay with Edelman, Gronk and Brady.

The New England Patriots have always been good at saving money and they shocked me today when I read Ben Volin’s tweets.  Volin of the Boston Globe is saying the Patriots saved a huge chunk of change by the restructured deal of Danny Amendola.

Amendola has swapped out a $5 million base salary, $500,000 in per-game roster bonuses, and another $500,000 in incentives for a maximum package this year of $1.6 million.

He will land a fully-guaranteed base salary of $1.25 million, a $100,000 signing bonus, and up to $250,000 in roster bonus. It a dramatic reduction, especially since he had 65 catches for 648 yards and three touchdowns in 2015.

To some players it is about more than just money. Some like to be on winning teams, and that is likely the case with Amendola.
