According to Tom Pelissero, the deal is a $5 million extension that includes $4.5 million guaranteed. Pelissero adds that Amendola will get $5.5 if he produces as he did in 2019, with max incentives which would get him to $6 million.
The #Lions signed WR Danny Amendola to a one-year, $5 million extension that includes $4.5M guaranteed, source said. He’d get $5.5M if he produces like last year — max with incentives is $6M. Another solid payday at age 34.
