Danny Amendola feeling “really good” after surgeries

Getty Images

It’s a quiet time around the league right now, which leaves players coming off of injuries with little to do other than make sure that they’re feeling well when it comes time for training camp.

Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola is in that group. Amendola had knee and ankle surgeries earlier this offseason that kept him off the field during OTAs and minicamp, but he didn’t sound like he expects the procedures to have much impact on the regular season during an appearance on ESPN Tuesday.

“I feel really good,” Amendola said. “I had a couple minor procedures done after the season. Everybody knows how long the season can be. I wanted to go into next season feeling as fresh and ready as I can.”

Amendola will likely be eased back into work once camp gets underway and he’ll join Chris Hogan, Nate Washington, Keshawn Martin, rookie Marvin Mitchell and others in a competition for snaps along with Julian Edelman at receiver. Taking a pay cut for the second straight year probably doesn’t hurt a healthy Amendola’s chances of emerging with a similar role to the one he played while catching 65 passes for 648 yards.

  1. “I feel really good…they shot me so full of HGH, I feel as young as Adrian Peterson.”

  2. 45 catches 5 TD’s took a pay cut

    Wants another ring…..

    Good solid Patriot

    Loving our chances next season.

  3. Given how much he got hurt with the Rams annually, I’m sure he’s got his own lounge in the hospital, so no doubt he’s got the process down.

  4. Amendola could be a deep threat receiver, too bad Brady doesn’t have the arm anymore.

    Wow, Patriots really are upping their ante on the cheating antics.

    How so, superjetsfan?

  6. I’d actually like to see Edelman, Blount, Lewis & Amendola & Vollmer or Soldier all start out on the pup list this year & give them all that additional time to heal…

    That would allow us some roster bubble guys make the team as well as giving us a good look at guys like Gaffney, Foster, Bennet,Karas, Cooper, Hogan, Mitchell, and whichever other WR’s fighting for a spot on the roster perform until these guys all come back…..especially if Brady has to sit those 1st 4 games….

    I’d rather see the Pats healthy & rested for the long haul as opposed to seeing KEY guys back just a little too early & re injuring themselves & going on IR….

    The Pats are deep enough with talent to survive the 1st 6 weeks without those guys & still go 4-2…

    Anyways those are my thoughts….

    No, but he has his own Super Bowl ring, and he was a major contributor in winning that ring with the Pats.

    Hopefully he will get his 2nd Super Bowl ring with the Pats this coming season, and ex-Ram Chris Long can get this first.

  9. 13 posts, 2 from jests fans with Pats-centric user names, 2 from you still mad bro 12’s and 2 from multi alias trolls. Things are slow, where are the whiny little fish fans?
    Is there Pats obsession in remission or did Mom take their internet privileges away?

    Yes, Jets fans have all but concluded they will never again win anything of any relevance so they resort to simply trolling the Pats by pretending to be Pats fans….

  11. If anyone accuses the Patriots of HGH use…..

    Just say – They were for Ashley Manning.

  12. Not on the list of surgeries was the open-wallet surgery performed by Dr. Bellichick. The Dr. says you’ll feel better after having it, and you often agree blindly.

  13. Middle school starts back up in about 7 weeks, then the trolls won’t have so much time on their hands. You know, what with shop class and all the remedial reading and writing classes they have to take.

    4 Rings, embrace the envy.

  14. Bronco’s put the blueprint out on stopping patsie’s last year. Gronkowski is gronkowski nothing much you can do with him. However you absolutely punish their diminuative wide receivers after they grab one of two yard tammy’s two yard slants. Amendola and edelman were petrified to catch the ball in the second half

    ==================

    Yeah all you need to do to stop them is to have every starting o-lineman but one injured and have that one playing out of position while Edelman and Amendola are coming off injuries of their own that required post season surgery. Damn, Phillips is brilliant. Wonder why nobody ever thought of that before.

    ““““““““““““
    TJ Ward put the blueprint out on stopping gronkowski.

  17. The Blueprint for stopping the PATRIOTS is the same as it always has been:

    Goodel tells the Refs to look the other way when blantant holding and PI is being commited by the Broncos.
    Then throw the flag for Offensive PI against Gronk, Edleman or whoever just caught the first down on a game changing scoring drive.

    Now that’s just a pathetic comment. When other teams say something along these lines Patriot nation calls them crybabies making excuses. Not surprising coming from the worst fan base in sports.

    So in addition to patsanoia there’s an obvious reading comprehension problem here. There was no excuse offered, merely a definition of ‘the blueprint’ that was used. Injuries are part of the game, game plans are designed with them in mind. The Broncos beat Pittsburgh and NE in Denver fair and square, it’s just preposterous to state that either of those wins constituted a blueprint for beating them in the future.

  21. Preposterous, absurd, delusional. It’s all the feeble little crybaby trolls really have. I like to remind them of their sorry existence whenever I see their posts.

  22. I was wondering who Marvin was too. Threw me off a little. Sounds like something grandma would say, like The “Oil Bird” Boyd.

    And if you know who I’m talking about, you’ve been around a while.

    You are a true football fan aren’t you? Your enjoyment comes from watching players get hurt!

    How sad your life must be…

    There’s nothing a Pats-troll knows, which is why there here 24/7/365 instead of working.

  25. Look at all of the lame excuses from Pats fans.

    “Yeah all you need to do to stop them is to have every starting o-lineman but one injured and have that one playing out of position while Edelman and Amendola are coming off injuries of their own that required post season surgery. Damn, Phillips is brilliant. Wonder why nobody ever thought of that before.”

    “The Broncos won by 2 points!”

    “Goodel tells the Refs to look the other way when blantant holding and PI is being commited by the Broncos.
    Then throw the flag for Offensive PI against Gronk, Edleman or whoever just caught the first down on a game
    changing scoring drive.”

    Here is the only real truthful comment Patsies fans hate to hear:
    “Now that’s just a pathetic comment. When other teams say something along these lines Patriot nation calls them crybabies making excuses. Not surprising coming from the worst fan base in sports.”

    Remember all of the Pats SB wins* are 4 pts or less.

  26. What’s your point? It seems to be that winning by ONLY 4 pts or less is somehow not good enough.

    My point is that winning is winning – and the closer the game the better the win – and losing is losing regardless of the score.

    It’s not rocket surgery.
