St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola leads the NFL in receptions (20) and is third in yards (230).
The fourth-year pro is the favorite target of quarterback Sam Bradford, grabbing 15 passes on 16 targets in a Week 2 victory over the Washington Redskins. His dozen first-half catches tied the NFL record for receptions in a half, set by Indianapolis Colts receiver Reggie Wayne in 2007 .
Amendola said Thurdsay on “NFL AM” that new coordinator Brian Schottenheimer’s offense is a big reason for his early success.
“So far in the NFL this is my fourth offense, and Schotty’s offense is the most intricate one, at the same time it has a mixture of all of them,” he said. “It’s very effective, it has the capability of making big plays, and we are all excited about it.”
The offense, however, will only go as far Bradford carries them. Amendola said the former No. 1 overall draft pick has put last season behind him and is geared for a great season.
“(Bradford) is a fighter, he’s a guy that had a great offseason and he’s ready to get as many wins as he can this year,” Amendola said.
