Patriots WR Danny Amendola: ‘I don’t think I’ve played my best football yet’

New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola is on pace to have the best season of his NFL career.

Through five games he has 26 receptions for 307 yards and a touchdown. He has never totaled more than 690 yards receiving in single season.

The Patriots are surely happy to see this kind of production out of Amendola, but he feels like he can still do even more.

“Well, I feel like I can get better. I don’t think I’ve played my best football yet,” Amendola said, via the Providence Journal’s Mark Daniels. “Regardless of what’s happened in the past, I still think I can play good football and get better.”

His past has included a lot of injuries. He has been diagnosed with two concussion during his career―one of them this season. He fought through several injuries in 2016, including an ankle injury that kept him off of the field for four games, and hampered his production during the playoffs.

With Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman out for the 2017 season, all of their wide receivers have had to take on a larger load. It has worked out so far, and if Amendola is able to finish this season with a career year, it will be a true testament to his mental strength.
