New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola is healthy and ready to get back on the field.
“The more experience you have the better,” Amendola told the Boston Herald. “I’m feeling great. I’m anxious and ready to get back out on the field in OTAs and have a good offseason, have a good break after that, and come to training camp ready to go.”
Amendola didn’t have surgery this offseason on the groin injury that plagued him last season.
“I feel great. I feel ready to keep training hard and keep getting better,” he said. “There’s a lot of progress to be made with our whole group. We’re all excited to be back working together.”
Amendola is taking part in the team’s voluntary offseason program after spending most of the offseason in Los Angeles.
“Bringing in new faces is part of the offseason, and we’ve brought in some savvy veterans and some guys who’ve played in a lot of games in the NFL,” Amendola said. “Any time you do that, you give your team a chance to be better, so I’m excited.”
In his first year as a Patriot, Amendola had 54 receptions for 633 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games last season.
