Danny Amendola retires

Danny Amendola had a chance to continue his career, but despite several teams calling, the receiver is calling it quits instead.

“It’s been better than I could have ever imagined,” Amendola told ESPN’s Adam Schefter of his career.

Amendola is open to pursuing other interests, including initial discussions with broadcasting networks, per Schefter.

Amendola, 36, entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2008, signing with the Cowboys. He spent his rookie season on the team’s practice squad and began 2009 on the Eagles’ practice squad before the Rams signed him to their active roster on September 22, 2009.

After that his career started.

Amendola played four seasons with the Rams, five with the Patriots, one with the Dolphins, two with the Lions and the final season with the Texans. He played in 163 games with 76 starts and totaled 617 receptions for 6,212 yards and 24 touchdowns.

He won Super Bowl rings with the Patriots in 2014 and ’16.
