A source told NFL Network that the NFC North squad will sign the former New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins pass-catcher to a one-year, $4.5 million contract. The deal is worth up to $5.75 million with incentives.
A source told ESPN that Amendola is taking a physical with the franchise. Amendola will be reunited with general manager Bob Quinn and head coach Matt Patricia, who previously worked with the Patriots.
The Dolphins released Amendola Friday, saving $6 million in salary cap space. Amendola, 33, signed a two-year, $12 million contract with the AFC East franchise in March 2018. Amendola arrived in Miami after five seasons with the Patriots.
The two-time Super Bowl champion had 575 yards and one touchdown on 59 receptions in 15 starts in 2018.
