MIAMI — A person familiar with the negotiations says receiver Danny Amendola is discussing a contract offer from the Miami Dolphins and is likely to sign with them when the NFL’s new year begins Wednesday.
The person confirmed the talks to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday because there was no final agreement.
Former Kansas City Chiefs receiver Albert Wilson is expected to sign a $24 million, three-year deal with Miami. Wilson and Amendola would replace three-time Pro Bowl receiver Jarvis Landry, whom the Dolphins have agreed to trade to the Cleveland Browns for two draft picks.
Amendola, 32, is a nine-year NFL veteran with 426 career receptions and 19 touchdowns. Last year he caught 61 passes for 659 yards for New England.
