Before Wes Welker agreed to terms on a two-year, $12 million deal with the Broncos, a source with knowledge of the market told PFT that slot receivers are “getting screwed.”
Also feeling the turning of the screws is free-agent receiver Danny Amendola. Per the source, Amendola’s offers on the open market are coming in lower than what the Rams had offered.
If that trend continues, Amendola could end up back in St. Louis.
And now that Welker has gotten only $12 million over two years, the Patriots and others can put the screws to Amendola even more.
