Receiver Danny Amendola is leaving New England, and winning, to sign with the Miami Dolphins as a free agent.  Tom Brady took to Instagram to say goodbye to “Danny Playoff” and his career.

“Teammate. Friend. Brother. Leader. Champion. #80 #DannyPlayoff

Amendola must have had enough of the Patriot way and the miserable New England winters.  He’s essentially trading winning for weather.  

If you’ve done enough winning then it makes sense.  He probably got a few more dollars than New England was willing to pay.
