According to the NFL Network, the Dolphins appear to be the front-runner to sign Danny Amendola, a nine-year veteran who has spent the past five seasons with the Patriots.

The Patriots have lost a key cog in their recent Super Bowl championship runs, losing slot wide receiver Danny Amendola to free agency.

Terms of the deal with the Dolphins were not immediately available.

Amendola has repeatedly restructured his contract to remain in New England, but apparently not this time, as he's prepared to cash in on a string of success, both in the regular season and the postseason. He led the team in catches (26) and receiving yards (348) and was second in touchdowns with two.

Amendola, who took pay cuts in each of the past three offseasons to remain with the Patriots, is coming off one of the best seasons of his career.

As a playoff performer, Amendola consistently came up huge.

He was also as tough as anyone in the locker room.

Amendola, 32, was a good complementary piece for the Patriots offense, usually operating as a third option behind Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman. When the financial figures are released, it might be easier to understand why they declined to match the offer for a player who couldn't fill a fulltime role for the length of the year.
