CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — With favorite target Wes Welker now in Denver after a contract squabble with the Patriots, Tom Brady is using the offseason to get used to new slot receiver Danny Amendola.
He has liked what he has seen so far.
Brady appeared at his Boston Buddies charity touch football game Friday night. After he redid his contract following last season, the general feeling was the extra money would help the Patriots retain Welker, who caught 672 passes, 37 of them for touchdowns, in the past six seasons. But Welker left for the Broncos.
And Amendola, who signed a five-year contract as a free agent, is thrilled to be part of the Patriots and to be teamed with Brady.
