Patriots media relations sent an e-mail confirming the signing of wide receiver Danny Amendola to a free agent contract. Terms were not included, but a league source has confirmed it is a five-year, $31 million deal with $10 million guaranteed.

What's interesting is that there was a quote from Bill Belichick on the signing:

"We are excited about Danny’s addition to our team and we look forward to beginning work with him this spring and into the future," Belichick said.

The Patriots have yet to release an official statement on Tom Brady's contract extension, and the team doesn't often comment on signings. But it did for Amendola, the replacement for Wes Welker.
