After taking pay cuts to stay with the Patriots each of the last few offseasons, receiver Danny Amendola is expected to sign with the Miami Dolphins, a league source confirmed.

NFL Network and the Miami Herald also reported an agreement had been reached. Free agents are not allowed to officially sign contracts until Wednesday, however.

The deal is reportedly good for two years, $12 million.

Amendola, who has been in New England since 2013, was arguably the Patriots’ most valuable offensive weapon for quarterback Tom Brady in the team’s run to Super Bowl LII. He led the team in catches (26) and receiving yards (348) and was second in touchdowns with two. He also rolled up 52 yards on five punt returns. In the regular season, Amendola caught 61 passes for 659 yards and a pair of touchdowns.


The 5-foot-11-inch, 190-pound receiver signed with New England after four seasons with the St. Louis Rams. In his career as a Patriot, he has 230 receptions for 2,383 yards, and 12 touchdowns.
