NFL Network: Danny Amendola to sign with Miami Dolphins

What Could Rob Gronkowski's Farewell Message to Danny Amendola Possibly Mean

Amendola had expressed his desire to stay with the Patriots earlier this offseason.

Amendola, 32, spent five seasons with the Patriots, compiling 230 catches for 2,383 yards and 12 touchdowns. He had 26 catches for 348 yards and two touchdowns in three games during the postseason.

Amendola is also an experienced return specialist, which could mean he'll push receiver/returner Jakeem Grant for his role. The Dolphins also reportedly agreed to sign former Chiefs receiver Albert Wilson to a three-year deal the NFL Network says is worth $24 million deal.

The receiver had taken paycuts in each of the last three seasons, and it looks like he chose to cash-in this offseason.

Free agents can not officially sign with teams until NFL Free Agency begins on Wednesday at 4pm, but this news will certainly be hard to take for New England fans.

The Dolphins traded slot receiver Jarvis Landry to the Browns this past week.

Once Julian Edelman suffered an ACL season, the Patriots relied upon Amendola to help pick up the slack. Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker were expected to start, and Jakeem Grant proved he had big-play ability in the second half of the season.
