Danny Amendola isn’t going anywhere.
The New England receiver has decided to restructure his deal for the second straight season:
Danny Amendola restructured contract to stay w/ Patriots, source says. Two years, $7.35m with $750k more in roster bonuses/catch incentives.

Amendola also commented in a statement to Mike Garafolo:
“It’s an honor to play for this franchise and with this group of guys. We have one goal- to win another Championship and that’s all we care about.”
At first glance it seems commendable and brave to restructure the deal, meaning you are getting less money, but most of the time with these contracts they are moving money around and paying it to you in different ways to avoid having a large cap number.
In his 42 games with New England, he has racked up 146 catches for 1,481 yards and 6 touchdowns.
