New WR Danny Amendola’s Work Ethic Impressing Dolphins Coach Adam Gase

Dolphins coach Adam Gase is raving about veteran wide receiver Danny Amendola’s impact on the team, Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. Apparently, Amendola’s work ethic has been quite impressive so far.

“It’s one of those values that I don’t think you can put a price on,” Gase said on Pro Football Talk Live on Wednesday morning.

“He’s been great in our locker room. I think the guys watch him work on the field and in the weight room and they understand why he’s played as long as he has, why he’s had success in big situations.”

Amendola was undrafted out of Texas Tech in 2008 but worked his way into a prime role with New England the last five years, becoming a postseason standout.

Gase said Amendola, a 32-year-old, nine-year veteran, is setting an example for others.

“Any time you can get a guy who can not only produce for you but can be a great example for other guys in your locker room, he’s making other guys better,” Gase said. “He makes 24 other offensive guys better if they watch him work.”
