During the Patriots-Eagles first joint practice on Tuesday, wide receiver Danny Amendola made a pretty ridiculous catch. While holding three footballs, he juggled another one off of his foot, caught one in the air, and then proceeded to reel in that fifth juggled ball.
Take a look: (You can go ahead and skip to 1:42 to see the catch)
Amendola is a damn fine receiver, and I am predicting a big year from him. If he can stay healthy, I see no reason why he can’t catch 100 balls, and possibly go over the 1,000 yard marker. He is quick, explosive, a good route-runner, and as you can see, has a good set of hands. Hopefully the injury bug doesn’t catch him this season, so we can see who the real Danny Amendola is.
The combination of him and Julian Edelman in the middle of the field could be extremely dangerous, especially when you think of the other weapons surrounding them. And when you have a guy like Amendola who obviously knows how to catch a football or two, you definitely can expect some production. It also looks like Danny Amendola could be returning punts, if Edelman were injured, or simply needed a rest.
