Patriots' Danny Amendola: Depth role if he stays

Amendola projects as the No. 4 or 5 receiver if he stays with the Patriots, ESPN.com reports.

Scheduled for a 2017 base salary of $6 million, Amendola needs to take a significant pay cut to avoid being released. The Patriots traded for Brandin Cooks to join a receiving corps that already had Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan, leaving Amendola and Malcolm Mitchell as the likely No. 4 and 5 receivers, in some order. Amendola accepted a pay cut the past two offseasons, but he'll probably be asked to take an even larger reduction this time around.
