The New England Patriots and wide receiver Danny Amendola have agreed to redo his deal, according to ESPN’s Field Yates.

The new deal is for 3 years for $12.75 million with the chance to earn up to $15 million with added incentives.

He was due to be $5.7 million against the cap this year.

Amendola could have gotten more money elsewhere, but choose to take less to remain with the winning Patriots, something Revis and Browner refused to do. Amendola must have been allowed to test his value, according to a source, but it didn’t matter he wanted to be with the Patriots.

Amendola had an excellent postseason, which is probably why the Pats wanted to redo his deal instead of letting him go. He caught 11 passes in the postseason for 137 yards and 3 touchdowns. He had 5 catches for 48 yards and a touchdown in the Super Bowl win over the Seahawks.

Amendola and Brady started getting their chemistry back for the first time since Amendola’s first game in 2013 against the Bills before he got hurt, so it makes sense the Pats want to keep him, keeping another weapon for Brady in 2015.

If he continues in 2015 to be the guy they always thought he would be on the field, he and Edelman will make for amazing duo.
