Danny Amendola To Sign With Lions


#1

#2

1 year deal for 4.5 million, up to 5.75 million with incentives.


#3

I like this deal for both parties.


#4

Ugh. Talk about a wake up kick in the n, er pants. Bill Schroeder 2.0


#5

I like the deal. He knows the system I assume Patricia and Bevell will implement. He’s still productive and will be a good mentor to the young WRs

He is a little long in the tooth though at 33


#6

I think this guy will be worth the money, especially to Stafford on 3rd downs.


#7

Hopefully, I’ll be surprised, but he’s never been super productive, and he’s got a pretty scary history of concussions. Just looked it up, and he’s had three recorded concussions since 2009, so not as bad as I thought, but who knows how many un-reported he’s had.


#8

Not a fan to be honest.
I feel like this was just another “given” ex patriot signing.


#9

I initially thought this as well. But the more I look at the position group, the more I like the signing. I need this guy to catch first downs and I believe he will do that.


#10

The price is in-line with what i was hoping to spend on a slot guy. The talk on NFLN is that guys like Humpheries, Crowder, etc. are gonna be pushing 10m/yr. and we cant afford that if we are going to spend big money on a couple or three defensive “playmakers”.


#11

True. And hopefully, he can use some of his veteran experience to help coach up Powell, who looked pretty darn good in week 17 (but it was week 17). I agree that I’d rather take a $4.5 mil risk on a guy with a lower ceiling but a relatively high floor than spend $10mil on a WR, when like you said, we’ve got defensive needs to address.


#12

I like Powell, and as you said, the guy showed in week 17 that he can play and produce in the NFL. Having a vet in the room that has “been there” should help with his development and with a little luck, Powell could be ready to take the next step in 2020.


#13

Along with Galloday, Marv, and James?
Yeah, I like it. I was really hoping Tate would come back, but…


#14

EXACTLY what I was thinking. He’s an on field coach, and will teach Powell (I believe he has a very high ceiling) how to be a football player, both in terms of toughness and technique. I feel Powell lacks focus and toughness, right now. I think Amendola will be a great locker room guy for Patricia too. I like it, especially on a one-year deal. Band-aid player.


#15

I just hope he can stay healthy.
