|Pats add another receiver, Hawkins -- Sat May 11 9:00 am --|
Former Titans wideout headed to New England
|The Patriots now have 12 wide receivers on their roster after signing free agent Lavelle Hawkins to a 2-year deal. (Boston Globe)|
FF Today's Take: The Patriots will be releasing at least a couple of the veterans wideouts they signed as Danny Amendola and the two rookies (Aaron Dobson & Josh Boyce) are likely to make the roster. That leaves Donald Jones, Micheal Jenkins Julian Edelman (foot) and Hawkins battling for roster spots.
|Patriots add receiver Jenkins -- Thu Mar 28 5:35 pm --|
Former Viking headed to New England
|The New England Patriots have signed free-agent wide receiver Michael Jenkins, the team announced Thursday night.
Terms of the deal are not yet known. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Jenkins was released by the Vikings this off-season and will join a revamped wide receiver corps in New England that includes Danny Amendola and Donald Jones. He'll be a fringe fantasy prospect and will likely be on the roster bubble in training camp.
|Pats sign Amendola to replace Welker -- Wed Mar 13 7:55 pm --|
Ex-Rams' WR to fill the role of slot receiver in New England
|The New England Patriots didn't value Wes Welker. They viewed him as a role player that was replaceable. Now they have replaced him. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that the Patriots have reached a five-year, $31 million agreement in principle with wide receiver Danny Amendola. The new deal includes $10 million guaranteed. (NFL.com)|
FF Today's Take: Amendola probably stands to benefit from his change of scenery more than any other free agent in this year's class. The hard-working 27-year-old will be thrust into a pivotal role where he will receive a healthy dose of targets from one of the NFL's best quarterbacks. His health, which has been an issue in the past, is the only thing standing in his way of fantasy stardom.
|Amendola to fill Welker-void for Pats? -- Wed Mar 6 9:20 pm --|
New England rumored to be interested in slot receiver
|The Patriots chose not to franchise Wes Welker (or anyone, for that matter) on Monday, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have a plan at slot receiver if Welker is not a Patriot next season. According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, the Pats have a replacement in mind in Danny Amendola. Florio, who was a guest on the Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday morning, hinted that the Pats plan to sign Amendola next week. “[The Patriots] need to work something out by next Tuesday,” Florio said. “The problem is they couldn’t franchise [Welker] because it would cost them $11.4 million to keep him around. “The ace in the hole for the Patriots is Danny Amendola.” Amendola caught 63 passes for 666 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games in an injury-shortened 2012.

FF Today's Take: For years, fantasy prognosticators have called Amendola a "poor man's Wes Welker". We may finally get the chance to see just how well the two compare. If signed by the Patriots, Amendola's fantasy stock would skyrocket. Stay tuned.
