    In Response to Re: Amendola still being sought after? :      The Pats won't, nor should they, pay him that kind of money. Especially the $20 million guaranteed is far too much. Posted by TexasPat
    Two different comments. Pats won't is one comment Pats shouldn't is another comment. You could see this coming once the first WR signed. S Johnson's contract made signing Wes almost impossible. All the other WR contracts just made it even harder. The only WR contract signed so far that seems out of whack is Lloyd's. I think that speaks volumes about the lack of interest in Lloyd due to his past history.

         If the Pats are interested in Amendola, they must act on or before April 20th: http://www.stltoday.com/sports/football/professional/amendola-back-with-rams-at-least-for-now/article_d697500b-ace9-5bff-b732-322c5767787b.html      There are reasons why Amendola was sighted in Boston, other than to visit the Patriots. His mother lives in Boston, and his father is from Boston.

    All the more reason to sign him! What is he a restricted FA?Or is he a tendered FA?

    In Response to Re: Amendola still being sought after? :      He's a restricted free agent. He's been offered an amount in conformity with a second round tender. If the Pats want him, they'll have to sign him to an offer sheet by April 20th:        "The deadline is April 20 for restricted free agents to receive offer sheets from outside clubs. The Rams put a second-round tender on Amendola, so the Rams get a second-round draft pick if he gets an offer from another club and the Rams decline to match." http://www.stltoday.com/sports/football/professional/amendola-back-with-rams-at-least-for-now/article_d697500b-ace9-5bff-b732-322c5767787b.html#ixzz1r0sgdGUM      So...if the Pats sign him to an offer sheet by April 20, the Rams will be given an opportunity to match. If they don't match it, he's a Patriot...and the Pats' 63rd overall pick goes to St. Louis.      Posted by TexasPat3
    I like amendola, but perhaps if the pats wanted a receiver to replace Wes, they could draft one at 62 or later instead at a lower price than amendola. This years draft is full of receiving talent all the way through round 4. At 62 +>, there are a number of options.
