Eagles Interested in Amendola?
Citing a source with "direct knowledge" of the Eagles' plans, CSN Philly reports the team is "interested in pursuing" free agent wide receiver Danny Amendola.
Amendola is said to be seeking north of $6 million a year.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Rams are not expected to re-sign free agent Danny Amendola due to his contract demands.
Peter King of Sports Illustrated noted that new coach Chip Kelly wants players who can "play fast and smart," and Amendola fits the bill when healthy. The 27-year-old Amendola has only made 17 career starts because he's been so banged up. He's missed 20-of-32 games over the past two seasons and Rams GM Les Snead confirmed Amendola's durability woes are a point of contention in long-term contract talks.
Kelly's spread scheme floods the field with four wide receivers, including two in the slot and Amendola would fit the role perfect.
The Eagles could save even more cap space by releasing incumbent slot receiver Jason Avant, and make a big upgrade by replacing him with Amendola who had 66 catches for 666 yards in 2012.
