Former New England Patriots fan favorite Danny Amendola is announcing his retirement from the NFL.
Amendola, who was a member of two New England Patriots Super Bowl championships told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Monday that he’s retiring from football.
“It was better than I could have ever imagined,” Amendola told Schefter of his NFL career.
Amendola was one of Tom Brady’s favorite targets during his time in New England, and he helped the Patriots to Super Bowl victories over the Seattle Seahawks (2014 season) and Atlanta Falcons (2016 season). He caught a touchdown in each Super Bowl while grabbing five catches for 48 yards against Seattle and eight catches for 78 yards against Atlanta.
Amendola also played for the ST. Louis Rams prior to joining New England. After his days were done in Foxborough he went on to play for the Miami Dolphins, and Detroit Lions before his final season in Houston. He finishes his career with 617 catches for 6,212 yards and 24 touchdowns during the regular season.
Amendola is currently in negotiations to get into broadcasting with multiple networks.
Despite multiple teams calling this offseason, two-time Super-Bowl champion WR Danny Amendola has decided to retire from the NFL. “It was better than I could have ever imagined,” Amendola said about his career.
