#80 Danny Amendola

New England Patriots2014 Record: 12-4

Feb 1: Amendola caught 5-of-7 targets for 48 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-24 Super Bowl win over the Seahawks. After posting a modest 27-200-1 receiving line on 44 targets in 16 regular-season games, Amendola surprisingly played a huge role in New England's run to the Super Bowl. It helped that the team went pass-heavy in games against the Seahawks and Ravens, as Amendola typically only sees the field in three and four-wide sets. A few weeks ago, he looked like a strong candidate to be released this offseason, but that now seems somewhat less likely, though not out of the question. The Patriots can save $2.1 million against the 2015 cap by cutting Amendola before June 1, or they can save $4.5 million by designating him as a post-June 1 cut, according to overthecap.com. If Amendola returns, he'll presumably do so as the No. 3 wide receiver, behind Julian Edelman and Brandon LaFell.
