Danny Amendola: Rams' offer wasn't close
Wideout Danny Amendola said he entered the offseason hoping to stay a Ram, but that St. Louis' offer wasn't close to what several teams offered. He plans to start catching passes from Tom Brady soon.
“I had three or four head-and-shoulders opportunities that were far outweighing what the Rams had offered, but I understand that it’s a business,” Amendola said on ESPN 101 in St. Louis, via sportsradiointerviews.com. “I understand that they have numbers. They value me as they will. And it turned out that other teams valued me a little higher and so that’s the way it goes.”
“I’ve talked with Tom a couple times,” said Amendola, 27. "We’re just trying to get some scheduling down, when we wanna get together and throw here, starting probably next week and then go from there. … I’m ready to get working with him.”
The Rams essentially replaced Amendola with tight end Jared Cook, signing him to a five year, $35.1 million deal that includes $19 million guaranteed. Cook will line up in the slot where Amendola usually did.
Amendola caught 85 balls in 2010, but injuries limited him to 12 games over the past two seasons.
