Adam Caplan has just reported that Eagles practice squad wide receiver Danny Amendola has agreed to contract terms with the St. Louis Rams. A shifty receiver as well as a decent punt returner, the 23-year-old athlete played in all four of the Eagles' preseason games after spending his rookie year on the Dallas Cowboys' practice squad. He will be expected to return punts as well as compete for a slot receiving role in St. Louis.
In his short time with Philadelphia, Amendola showed flashes of brilliance, but simply couldn't crack the 53-man roster while playing at one of the team's deepest positions. Over the four games, Amendola racked up 74 yards from seven receiving and rushing attempts.
Since Amendola was the only receiver/return man signed to the Eagles practice squad, the best guess is that they will sign a player with similar skills to replace him. More on to come who our newest Eagle will be.
Norwood, released by Cleveland just before the start of the season, is indeed coming to Philadelphia, but only a workout in front of team officials tonight is guaranteed.
The 5-foot-11, 171-pound receiver caught 41 passes for 637 yards and six touchdowns last year for the Nittany Lions. The Browns invited him to training camp as an undrafted free agent.
