Breer: How Denver landed Welker
"As far as comparisons to Wes, I've been hearing it for a long time," Amendola said during a Friday conference call, according to ESPN Boston. "I watched him play the whole time -- he's a great player, he's had a number of Pro Bowls and done a lot of good things to help the Patriots win. One of my main goals is to fill my role and try to do what I can to now help the Patriots win as well."
Amendola might have some Welker-like abilities, but he also can split out wide. Either way, he has a long way to go before matching Welker's five 100-catch, 1,000-yard seasons.
