Danny Amendola, the ex-Patriots receiver whose late touchdown catches against Jacksonville put New England in the Super Bowl a few months back, is expected to sign with the Dolphins. While the NFL Network said Amendola never reeled in more than 690 yards or four touchdowns in a season, he had a knack for coming up big time in the playoffs.
He handled 27 of New England's punt returns last season, contributing 231 return yards, which averages out to 8.6 yards per return.
Wide receiver Danny Amendola thrived with Tom Brady and the Patriots.
Miami is overhauling its receiving corps this offseason after trading Jarvis Landry to the Browns and agreeing to sign former Chiefs wideout Albert Wilson.
Amendola should be able to play a prominent role in Miami.
There has been no official confirmation from Amendola or the Patriots.
Amendola also served as New England's top punt returner after Julian Edelman and Cyrus Jones both suffered torn ACLs during the preseason. They also still have Brandin Cooks and Chris Hogan on the outside, as well as Phillip Dorsett and Kenny Britt.
