The St. Louis Rams have wide receiver Danny Amendola locked up for another season at least. Amendola signed his one-year restricted free agent offer sheet on Thursday, according to Adam Caplan. The deal pays him $1.972 million, the amount due for a second-round offer.

Earlier in the offseason there was some speculation that the Patriots could swoop in and make Amendola an offer, giving up a second-round pick to get an eventual replacement for Wes Welker. That never happened, obviously. He could still end up in New England, however.

The Rams have more than one candidate to replace him, a plethora of slot receivers like Greg Salas that should get chances to cement himself on the roster. If Salas can stick, the Rams would be free to let Amendola look for opportunities elsewhere after this season.

They could also find a potential replacement in the draft this weekend, perhaps a speedier option in the slot that can legitimately stretch the field.
