Amendola could be feeling some pressure as he apparently begins to wear down from a health standpoint, but right now it's unclear who could push him for playing time. A distant third for targets in this offense, Amendola had to get minor surgery on his ankle and knee early this offseason (he played through the knee issue half of last season) and may not be ready by camp. He also took a pay cut this past winter, indicating that the Patriots may be looking to decrease his role. As it stands, Amendola is in a shaky position to have trustworthy value. We wouldn't be surprised if he was the No. 2 receiver here again this year, but we also won't be surprised when he's supplanted. (May 20)

Patriots | Danny Amendola recovering (Mon May 16, 04:54 PM) - New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee, ankle) is recovering from a pair of offseason surgeries that could prevent him being ready for the start of the 2016 season. Amendola had surgery on a troublesome left knee and another surgery to remove a bone spur in his ankle, according to a source. Both surgeries happened early this offseason.

Our View: Amendola accepted a pay cut earlier this year...and for good reason. He's got to spend quite a bit of time recovering from these injuries before he's ready for the 2016 season. It's still too early to know when Amendola will be fully recovered, but his knee will demand a longer recovery schedule than his ankle.

Patriots | Danny Amendola takes big pay cut (Tue May 10, 10:59 AM) - Updating previous reports, New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola can earn $1.6 million in 2016, which is a pay cut of $4.4 million from his last contract.

Our View: Many expected Amendola to accept a pay cut if he wanted to stay with the team. He's set to earn $6.5 million in 2017, but none of it is guaranteed. That means they'll have a decision to make on him again next offseason.
