Amendola was set to make $6 million in salary in 2017, and it was relatively clear he was not going to be playing for the Patriots under his contract the way it was structured.

The Patriots now hold no first or second-round selections in the upcoming draft, but the Saints have shown interest in Butler, brining him in for a visit earlier in free agency. In fact, Butler had to sign his $3.91 million tender before he could be traded. "Yes", he said. "But are we planning on it or is that the plan? No". "Could that change? Look, it's the National Football League". His most memorable play came in the Super Bowl two seasons ago when he intercepted Russell Wilson at the goal line in the Patriots victory. It's unclear what they'd be willing to give up for Butler, but they have seven draft picks in 2017 after receiving some when they traded wide receiver Brandin Cooks to the Patriots last month. The Bills have until early next week to match the offer or settle for acquiring New England's fifth-round draft pick as compensation.
