Danny Amendola, the two-time Super Bowl winner, recently announced retirement. The renowned WR announced on Twitter via Erik Burkhardt, Danny’s Agent.
Despite having played for 13 seasons with five different teams, Danny is most known for playing with Boston, and the player scored both of the Super Bowl wins with the New England Patriots.
The 36-year-old Danny did not play any matches in 2022, making his time with Houston Texans the final season. Danny only got to play in eight games during the season, making the retirement somewhat lacking. However, the player has left a legacy with massive respect among Danny’s peers.
The player rocked the field between 2013 and 2017 as a trusted receiver for Tom Brandy. During the period, Danny made three Super Bowls appearances, out of which the player won two.
Besides this, Danny played 163 games during his career, with 76 appearances in the starting line-up. The player also recorded over 617 career receptions for 24 touchdowns and 6,212 yards receiving while playing with the Texans, Detroit Lions, St. Louis Rams, Miami Dolphins, and Patriots.
With over 11,761 all-purpose yards across his career, Danny stands among the most capable WRs on the field. Danny’s performance during crucial stages was pivotal, giving the player the nickname Playoff Danny.
As a 5’11, 185-pound player, Danny encountered several issues during the start of his career. However, it did not take the player too long before being noticed. Danny’s collaboration with Sam Bradford ended the second season with a career-high 689 yards and 85 receptions.
After four seasons, Danny ended up with New England, where the player fitted perfectly. Danny’s five seasons with the team were the most, registering 12 touchdowns and 230 receptions for 2,383 yards. Even through thick and thin, Danny stayed with the Pats and Brady, accepting pay cuts several times.
However, even such an illustrious career ends as the sport bids farewell to Danny Amendola as a player.
