    yea, maybe. But thinking back to that ridiculous catch he made vs. the Seahawks is something I can't get out of my head.

    This guy is Wes Welker, and I just can't see a team getting rid of 26-year-old Wes Welker.

    It depends what the other side is offering. And maybe Greg Salas is a 23 year old Wes Welker...

    Guys like Amendola are what this team needs, hard-working heart and soul guys who also get good results on the field. There were a number of people thinking he'd be cut last off-season and now a lot who wouldn't seem to mind if he was gone...guess he can't catch a break on this board.

    I thought Julian Edelman was Welker's successor. No way I want to get rid of Danny, he's the reason why we were able to move the chains and get to the redzone during the 2010 season.

    Amendola is a playmaker, a multi-purpose threat, and he makes Bradford better. He's a proven commodity on a team without a lot of proven commodities. The Rams need Danny Amendola IMO. Plus, he does things like this:




    Simply amazing. Then he has the presence of mind to lunge for more yardage. He's a keeper.

    Eh cut him, trade him, who cares, why would a team full of cruddy receivers who can't get open or catch passes need one that can actually do those things? Let's stick with the same group as last year because they did so well.

    I'd trade him for a 2 but no way for a 4.

    Salas is bigger, faster and has more upside than Amendola.

    So to say that I would have no reservations about sending him (Amendola) packing for a 2nd round pick, is the understatement of the year.

    Well, I'm obviously in the minority, so I'll say this and then move on:

    Danny Amendola WILL be a productive starter in the NFL this season. I just hope he does so as a Ram.

    Seeing that Brandon Marshall was just had for two thirds, I don't think we need to worry about getting a 2nd for Amendola.

    Not gonna happen.

    Oh, I agree. Danny's the best receiver we've got. That's not to say that there aren't any second round receivers who would be better, but I still see him as a part of this team's future for years to come if we're lucky.

    Ok lets look at this objectively.

    There is no question letting Amendola go for that 2nd round pick is completely worth it. However, we saw Sam have no targets last year and Amendola was missed very much. If we can get some receivers then thats fine. But, if we don't pick up anyone nor draft Blackmon then we gotta hang on to him. Great guy, hard work ethic but hey not my kind of receiver, even at the slot

    I would drive Amendola to New England for a 2nd rounder.

    As of right now it doesn't look like there will be much overhaul except for subtracting the only productive receiver last year, Lloyd, and people seem fine with subtracting the only productive receiver from two years ago, Amendola, as well. Makes no sense.

    Even if we can get Blackmon, I don't see how this team is better without Amendola.
