New England Patriots have a dilemma on their hands at the wide-receiver position.

Should they let Danny Amendola leave or should they keep him on board?

The former St Louis Rams player had an average first season with the Patriots, with only 54 catches and 633 yards.

He was signed by the Patriots last March to replace premier receiver Wes Welker, who signed with the Denver Broncos.

Amendola failed to fill the void of Welker in his first season, with the 28-year-old suffering from connection problems with Brady and injury struggles.

The Pats still have him signed to four more years of an original five-year deal that is worth $28.5 million.

Head coach Bill Belichick is understood to be willing to let the guys upstairs float Amendola for a possible trade, but Adam Jones of CBS thinks New England should keep the wide-out on board.

"There’s no trade market out there for Danny Amendola. I can’t imagine the Kraft’s swallowing their pride and cutting Wes Welker’s replacement the very next offseason," Jones said.

"He will be with the Patriots next year and I don’t think it’s the end of the world. He could do next year what Julian Edelman did this year. All the same things we criticize Amendola for not playing through a full schedule we said about Edelman."
