The New England Patriots are going to need all the help they can get going into the 2016 season, especially with quarterback Tom Brady’s four-game suspension being upheld. With Jimmy Garoppolo at the helm for those games, having a veteran like Danny Amendola on the field is certainly going to help them out a lot.
Amendola, who has been with the Patriots since the 2013 season, was still debating on returning for the 2016 season, but he has now been locked down for the next few years.
According to Mike Garafolo, he restructured his contract and signed for the next two years.
Danny Amendola restructured contract to stay w/ Patriots, source says. Two years, $7.35m with $750k more in roster bonuses/catch incentives.

Danny Amendola had his best season with the Patriots in 2015 as he was second on the team in receptions with 65 and third in receiving yards with 648. He added on three touchdowns and should be a big part of the team going forward this year.
“It’s an honor to play for this franchise and with this group of guys,“ Amendola said in a statement. “We have one goal — to win another championship — and that’s all we care about.”
He helped the Patriots win Super Bowl XLIX over the Seattle Seahawks and certainly looks like he is ready to help them do it one more time.
