The Texans added both a hometown player and Super Bowl champion, Danny Amendola to their receiving roster Tuesday right before the start of the NFL regular season. Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network reports that, the veteran wide receiver who played high school football in The Woodlands and at Texas Tech for his college career, signed a one-year deal reportedly worth $2.5 million.

In the 2020 season, Amendola caught 46 passes for 602 yards with the Detroit Lions. He played with the Eagles, Rams, Patriots and had a single season stint with the Miami Dolphins before joining the Lions. Among the things that make Amendola unique is that he played for the New England Patriots for five seasons and won two Super Bowls with them. As a member of the NFL's 2006 Super Bowl team, Amendola caught 593 receptions for 5,964 yards and 21 touchdowns in 155 games. Let's see if Danny can bring some hometown flavor back to the city. With the cut of Keke Coutee, Amendola can be a good addition to the offensive line-up or a bust.
