Former Patriots Fan Favorite Danny Amendola Is Joining The Las Vegas Raiders Coaching Staff

The Las Vegas Raiders are bringing in another former New England Patriots. This time it is fan favorite Danny Amendola who was a member of two Patriots Super Bowl Championship rosters. Amendola will reunite with Jimmy Garoppolo, Josh McDaniels and several other former New England Patriots as the new coaching assistant.

Amendola played 13 seasons in the NFL as areceiver and returner who led the NFL in kickoff return yards as a rookie with the Lions in 2009 and in average yards per punt return in 2015 as a member of the Patriots.

Amendola was a reliable receiver for the Patriots Super Bowl champion teams in 2014 and in 2016. He caught a key touchdown pass in the Patriots’ come-from-behind win over the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX. His touchdown catch and game-tying two-point conversion grab helped New England overcome a 28-3 deficit against the Falcons in Super Bowl LI.
