NFL Free Agency Rumors: St. Louis Rams Considering Options For Danny Amendola

The St. Louis Rams have an interesting decision on their hands when it comes to wide receiver Danny Amendola. With the franchise deadline coming at 4:00 p.m. ET, the Rams are not expected to tag Amendola but they are considering other options.

The two options the Rams have to keep Amendola are signing him to a long-term deal or using the transition tag, which would pay Amendola  $8.867 million and give the Rams the right to match any offer.

Using the transition tag on Amendola would save the team a little more money than the $10.537 million franchise tag.

The most interesting rumor making the rounds comes from Adam Caplan, who hints that the team could attempt to apply the transition tag on Amendola as a tight end which is an interesting idea. The idea comes from the recent evolvement of the tight end position that has tight ends lining up in the slot on a more consistent basis.

Whatever the Rams decide to to do, it looks like they are committed to finding a way to lock up Amendola for the long-term but they are running out of time to make a decision.
