Beat man Ben Volin points out that Amendola's deal does contain offsets, but adds that he now "likely stays." It's no surprise given how thin the Patriots are at wideout -- especially now that free agent Julian Edelman is out testing the market. Amendola was a brutal disappointment during his first year in New England, but slogged through a debilitating hip injury. It's always about healthy here, but Amendola will be a huge bounce-back candidate as a potential target monster from Tom Brady in 2014.
