NFL Rumors: New England Patriots-Danny Amendola Trade Remain A Possibility

This is, and I am not exaggerating, one of my very favorite NFL trade rumors of all time, if only for its sheer inevitability—after two years of Danny Amendola being described, invariably, as the poor man's Wes Welker, the New England Patriots' interest in Amendola became a widely trafficked rumor last month, flying in the face of the Rams' attempts, otherwise, to bring wide receivers in. Tuesday Turf Show Times recapped the rumors, which remain both implausible and fascinating.

I don't think the Rams and the Patriots will end up pulling this particular trigger, but it does make sense—slot receivers are more fungible than the other models, and as useful as Amendola was in the Rams' 2010 season as Sam Bradford's all-purpose release valve the Rams seem inclined to buy up draft picks by the dozen as the Jeff Fisher regime takes hold.
