    How Wes Welker's Replacement Started To Win Over Boston

    You're a good man, Danny Amendola.

    Earlier this offseason, the New England Patriots decided not to bring back fan-favorite and star wide receiver Wes Welker. Welker in turn signed with the Denver Broncos where he'll play with Boston's most hated quarterback Peyton Manning.

    So the Patriots turned to rising star Danny Amendola in free agency to fill Welker's shoes. No easy task, especially considering how beloved Welker was in Boston.

    But with one tweet last night, Amendola went a long way to making New Englanders forget about Welker.

    Classy move, Danny. Classy move.
