“He just got a brand-new contract and he is terrible,” Ramsey told Mina Kimes regarding Amendola. “People think he’s so great. No, he’s not. Tom [Brady] made him look good. Tom could take me as a receiver and I’d be a first-team All-Pro.”
While it wouldn’t be wise to bet against Ramsey excelling at any position he tries to play, it’s a little odd that he would take aim at Amendola, given his performance in the fourth quarter of the AFC title game. With the Patriots down 20-10, Amendola caught a pair of touchdown passes to propel the Pats past the Jags.
Don’t get me wrong; I like that Ramsey is willing to talk. But he’s writing a lot of checks, and they’ll be systematically coming due over and over again, over the next several years.
