Danny Amendola signs with Detroit Lions
After spending a year in Miami, former Highlander wide receiver Danny Amendola will suit up for the Detroit Lions for the 2019-2020 NFL season. Amendola signed a 2-year $12 million deal last offseason after the Patriots Super Bowl LII loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Miami released Amendola after recording 59 receptions for 575 receiving yards, and one receiving touchdown in his only season as a Dolphin. Set to make $6 million in 2019 with the Dolphins, Amendola’s new contract comes up just shy at $5.75 million.
