The former Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots wide receiver plans to sign with the Detroit Lions according to ESPN's Dianna Russini. The move reunites him with general manager Bob Quinn and head coach Matt Patricia, who both spent time with Amendola on the Patriots.
NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reported the contract is a one-year deal worth a guaranteed $4.5 million, and incentives could make it worth $5.75 million.
The Lions traded their slot star Golden Tate at the deadline last season, creating a void that wasn't filled by any existing player. Amendola hauled in 59 passes for 575 yards with one touchdown while also contributing in the kicking game with 11 punt returns. Amendola will fit nicely between the two bigger outside receivers.
