New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady isn’t wasting any time trying to build a relationship with his newest slot receiver.
Brady and receiver Danny Amendola were on the campus of the University of Southern California on Tuesday working out according to USC Athletics official twitter account. It’s a normal part of Brady’s offseason routine to work out in Los Angeles.
Brady’s chemistry with Wes Welker was one of the biggest reason the two had so much success together during their time together in New England. The Patriots offense includes many “option” routes for their receivers where the route they run changes based on the coverage both Brady and the receiver see from the defense. Brady and Welker had an uncanny sense to see the same thing and know exactly how the other would react to what they were seeing.
Amendola will have a long way to go to get to that level of comfort with Brady. When healthy, Amendola has been a very productive player during his first four seasons with the St. Louis Rams. Amendola caught 63 passes for 666 yards for the Rams last season.
