Patriots' Danny Amendola: Depth role if he stays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amendola projects as the No. 4/5 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.

Patriots' Dont'a Hightower: Jets wary of results of physical exam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets were uncomfortable with the result of Hightower's physical, ESPN.com reports.

The Jets initially offered the 27-year-old linebacker a five-year, $62.5 million contract, but it seems they dropped out of the running after getting the results of his physical. Hightower subsequently re-signed with the Patriots -- who surely have a good feel for his injury risk -- on a four-year, $43.5 million contract that includes $19 million guaranteed. He did miss at least three games in each of the last three seasons, though never more than four in a single campaign. Hightower's shoulder and knee are the mostly likely causes of the Jets' concern, but neither was a big enough problem to prevent the ever-cautious Patriots from offering him a hefty sum.

Patriots' Justin Coleman: Inks exclusive-rights tender with Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman signed his exclusive-rights tender with the Patriots on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Patriots tendered Coleman before the start of free agency last week. Even with Coleman returning to the Patriots, the club's acquisition of Stephon Gilmore complicates his path to seeing regular snaps. Things could change depending whether Malcolm Butler remains with New England, however.

Patriots' Dion Lewis: Spotted doing rehab work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (hamstring) has been doing rehab work at Gillette Stadium, ESPN.com reports.

Lewis injured his hamstring on the final play of regulation in the Super Bowl and subsequently missed the brief but memorable overtime period. His decision to stick around New England for rehab work suggests the ailment is fairly serious, but he's apparently making progress with more than a month remaining before the start of OTAs. Lewis will have heated competition for snaps and targets in training camp, with Rex Burkhead joining the New England backfield on a one-year, $3 million contract. Super Bowl hero James White will also be firmly in the mix for a key role, and the Patriots may add more competition in the form of a power back -- possibly even re-signing LeGarrette Blount.

Patriots' Michael Williams: Staying in New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) has re-signed with the Patriots, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports.

Williams suffered a torn ACL in practice last June and consequently spent the entire 2016 season on injured reserve. Even when healthy, he's extremely unlikely to achieve fantasy relevance this upcoming season given his nature as an in-line blocking tight end.
