After igniting in his past two seasons, Danny Amendola is ready to cash in. He did look dashing in the midnight green.
According to a report by Geoff Mosher of Comcast Sportsnet, the Eagles are interested in re-acquiring receiver Danny Amendola. Amendola served on the Eagles’ 2009 practice squad for about a week. At 5-11, 183 lbs, Amendola would provide a versatile replacement for the aging Jason Avant. An adequate punt returner. Amendola’s dynamic nature will flow well in Chip Kelly’s up-tempo offense.
Mosher writes, “Amendola, who has two 60-plus catch seasons in the past three years, is one of the NFL’s most productive slot wideouts, although he can also play outside and is an excellent return specialist.”
After the 2012 special teams slumped in return efficiency, the team will look to add a new candidate. Amendola’s style would complement DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin well enough to replace Avant following is eventual release.
In all honesty, the Eagles have limitless holes to fill. This eerie draft class will not fill the voids on defense, nor add to a budding offense. The time is now, Eagles fans. March through August are when championships are won.
