One of the big questions this offseason was whether or not Danny Amendola would be with the Patriots for the 2016 season. It would appear that question has now been answered.

According to Mike Garafolo, Amendola has restructured his contract to stay with the Patriots

While Amendola has been productive in the Patriots system, his cap hit prior to the restructure didn't reflect his numbers, and there were those who predicted that he would be released in order to allocate funds elsewhere. Amendola clearly saw that playing in New England was best for his career long-term, and this team-friendly deal reflects that. When asked about the restructure, Amendola had the following to say:

"It's an honor to play for this franchise and with this group of guys. We have one goal- to win anotherChampionship and that's all we care about."

This is good news for anyone who was hoping Amendola would stick around; he always seems to come up huge when the team needs him, and he will join Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Rob Gronkowski, and Martellus Bennett, as Tom Brady's primary receiving weapons. If everyone can stay healthy, the New England offense will be formidable in 2016.
