The idea of Danny Amendola reuniting with the New England Patriots didn’t last very long.

Amendola was released by the Miami Dolphins this past Friday, which prompted heaps of Patriots fans to plead the veteran wide receiver to bring his talents back to Foxboro. While there reportedly was mutual interest between the two sides, Amendola opted for a different kind of reunion.

The Detroit Lions on Monday signed Amendola, who now will play under former New England defensive coordinator Matt Patricia. And after the 33-year-old took to Twitter to share his latest career move, Pats fans predictably reacted.

Amendola hardly was the only player with New England ties to agree to join the Lions on Monday. Detroit reportedly scooped up Trey Flowers and Justin Coleman on the open market as well.
