Veteran receiver Danny Amendola, who spent the past five seasons with the Patriots, is set to sign with the Dolphins, NFL Network's Dan Hellie reports. No terms on the deal have been reported. He had 26 catches for 348 yards and two touchdowns in three games during the postseason. He's coming off a decent 2017 regular season where he had 61 catches for 659 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
Amendola is also an experienced return specialist, which could mean he'll push receiver/returner Jakeem Grant for his role.More news: Flake: Anti-tariff Republican should challenge Trump in 2020

And so, the Dolphins suddenly have a logjam at receiver.
Amendola joins former Chiefs wideout Albert Wilson as new weapons in the Miami offense.
Both will be asked to make up for the loss of Jarvis Landry, traded to the Browns late last week. The deal can not be officially signed until March 14, which is the start of the new league year. Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker were expected to start, and Jakeem Grant proved he had big-play ability in the second half of the season.
