NFL Trade Rumors: Rams Might Let Amendola Walk If Patriots Made An Offer

The Danny Amendola-New England Patriots talk will not die. That should be a concern to the receiver-starved St. Louis Rams. Despite push back on reports that Amendola was seen at the Patriots' team facility, he was, apparently, in Boston this week. According to Jim Thomas of the Post Dispatch, the Rams might not be inclined to match an offer from the Patriots on the restricted free agent, preferring instead to take one of their second-round picks as compensation.

It sounds far fetched until you consider something Jeff Fisher said on Wednesday.

Fisher noted the possibility of finding a receiver via the trade route. Stockpiling draft picks, especially if they had three second-round picks, would give the team a full quiver of picks to deal. As for what trade options are out there, that remains to be seen. DeSean Jackson rumors spread around the internet fast and furious on Wednesday morning, but were quickly debunked when he signed a long-term contract extension.

Another factor in letting Amendola walk would be the Rams' abundance of slot receivers. Greg Salas looked good in limited work before his season ended with a fractured fibula. Austin Pettis is also a slot guy.
