49ers showing interest in Danny Amendola?
he latest name to surface as a possible free agent acquisition for the 49ers is former St. Louis Rams wide receiver, Danny Amendola. Ian Rapoport is the one who is reporting that the 49ers are one of five teams to watch in the Danny Amendola sweepstakes.
On Amendola, I see a market of at least 5 teams. Some to watch: #49ers (He killed them, takes away a rival’s weapon) & Pats if no Welker

Hopefully, the 49ers avoid Amendola at all costs and here are some reasons why:
- Has played in only 12 games over the past two years.
- Missed 20 games over that same span.
- Lowest career yards/catch average of any WR since 1970 (minimum 100 catches): 8.81 YPC
If Amendola could stay healthy, he’s worth a look, however not sure the team is willing to gamble on that chance.
