Veteran wide receiver Danny Amendola has called time on his career, retiring after 13 seasons in the NFL.

The 36-year-old’s final season ended up being the 2021 campaign with the Houston Texans in which he played only eight games.

He will be most remembered for his time in Boston with the New England Patriots where he was a trusted slot receiver for Tom Brady from 2013 through 2017, playing in three Super Bowls and winning two.
