    I would say keep them both if at all possible.  They compliement one another well and you can't ask for better depth if the price is right.  These two with the 4 rookies to find our outside starter works for me.

    Just a short idea.. what would this mean for the cap?

    we still  have TJ Moe waiting on IR in case Julian gets hurt again...




    I hope you're just trolling...

    If not...

    1.) Amendola isn't the problem.

    2.) Cutting Amendola before June 1 would COST the team $2.1mil in cap space. Post June1, the cap savings would be minimal.

    3.) You do realize that the WR you want to re-sign has an injury history similar to the guy you want cut?

    4.) I always liked Edelman and he is finally showing what he's capable of doing when healthy for an entire season. Amendola has been playing all year with a torn groin. Yet in week 1, he had 10 catches for 104 yards (all catches went for first downs). Therefore, shouldn't you be showing the same consideration Amendola? I'm sure he'll put up eye-popping numbers if unburdened from unlucky injuries.

    5.) Like most posters on this board, the Amendola/Welker myopia prevents you from seeing the more serious problems with the Patriots offense: Brady's inconsistencies and the net loss of the Woodhead/Vereen swap.

    While Brady hasn't had a stellar year relative only to his normal numbers, and the Woodhead/Vereen swap has only really hurt due to being 11 weeks without Vereen, you whiffed on the main issue.  TE.  This offense has been TE driven for the last few years, and this year we had Gronk for only a few weeks, and perhaps even just as importantly went the entire year without Hernandez.

    Amenola and Eldeman = Welker

    Vereen = Woodheadd

    Gronk and Hernandez = Here lies our #1 problem.

    In response to rkarp's comment:

    the dead money incurred cutting Amendola is $6.8M. Combine that with the Hern hit and the dead money balloons to almost $15M. Amendola is not getting cut.

    I put the chance of Edelman coming back at less then 20%. He has earned his chance at free agency, has not yet had the chance to make money, and will find plenty of teams interested in signing him. I think the Pats as they do with every player, assign a value and do not exceed that number. The Pats have the luxury of Amendola, Collie and Boyce on the roster, and Brady throwing the ball.

    Amendola IMO can be a better player than Edelman for this team. Better route runner, better hands. He simply has to stay on the field, and regain that comfort factor with Brady that they had in game 1 against the Bills.

    No one can blame Edelman for the situation. He was a free agent last year, and in a limited amount of playing time, showed the Pats what kind of player he could be. They also saw him every day in practice. It was clear even to a novice like me the guy was a beast in camp. The Pats low balled him at $750 to sign him, when they could have tied him up for 3 years at a very reasonable number, 3/$10, that I think he would have signed. I have to think he is now looking at 5/$25-$28 with $10-$12 guaranteed  



    I agree with everything you said, especially about amendola's potential to be better then julian. however, I disagree he will see that kind of offer from other teams.  Teams will recognize him as a system player, and expect 50 catch production although a very good pun returner. I think he comes back to N.E and stays with Brady.

    thanks for some of the good replies....

     

    and no, i am not a "troll" and this was a plain question which was in my head as i from some history following the Pats can´t imagine BB spending too much money on one position. Or did this already happen back in times?

     

    i am in different forums (non sport) and i really don´t get this one.. why does everybody immediately starts insulting? Frown
