According to Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly.com, the Eagles are interested signing St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola. He’s a diminutive, quick as a cat, slot receiver in the mold of New England’s Wes Welker.
The former Eagles wide out is 27 years old and has been in St. Louis for four years. He has had two 60-plus catch seasons for the Rams.
Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur signed Amendola off the Eagles practice squad when he was head coach of the Rams. Now that the coach is back with the Eagles it’s not a shock that the Birds are interested in Amendola.
This could mean that Chip Kelly and his coaching staff aren’t as high on last year’s slot receiver Jason Avant as Andy Reid’s staff had been. We will see over time.
