Longtime NFL wide receiver Danny Amendola played more of his 14-year career with Tom Brady on the New England Patriots than any other team or quarterback. And even though he’s currently retired, it sure sounds like he’d come out of retirement to run it back with his friend.
During an appearance on The Herd with sports personality Colin Cowherd, Danny Amendola revealed that he would “absolutely” come out of retirement to play with Tom Brady if the quarterback returned to the New England Patriots this offseason.
“Absolutely,” Amendola told Colin Cowherd during an appearance on The Herd on Wednesday. “Tom’s done a lot for me, and if he needs me, I’d always play for Tom.”
While Danny Amendola revealed that he is happy with his decision to retire, he’d “have to go back” if Brady returned.
“I’m happy not playing,” Amendola said. “I got enough football. I played for 14 years in the NFL. Played a lot of football. My knees feel better on Monday this year watching football from the couch. Of course, if Tom called, yeah, definitely I’d have to go back, if he summoned me out of retirement.”
“The situation would have to be in New England, with a New England team that’s a contender,” Edelman said in the radio interview.
While most NFL insiders expect Brady to retire following the season even though “all options are on the table,” there has been quite a bit of speculation that Brady could return to the Patriots next season, even by his former teammate and friend Rob Gronkowski.
