Danny Amendola is a man of many talents with the Detroit Lions, and his newest one might just get the attention of new special teams coach Brayden Coombs.

Recently, while working ahead of Lions camp, Amendola hauled in a 60 yard punt from behind his back, making the insane play look pretty easy.

Here’s a look:

Amendola has returned punts before, but the Lions have a solid special teams returner in Jamal Agnew and their group is already poised to be one of the better ones in the league for this coming season. Still, it’s great to know they’ve got a helpful pair of hands in Amendola should they need them in 2020.

That’s true even though the play isn’t one that anybody should try at home or in an NFL game.

Danny Amendola Has Best NFL Hands

Amendola is actually one of the most vital members of the team given his excellent hands in the slot, and his numbers are no slouch as he keeps his career going. In actuality, the Lions have one of the top wideouts in the game in terms of catch percentage in the last 5 years.

Amendola has caught 71.4% of his passes, which is the 4th best total in the league over that span. The leader Michael Thomas has caught an absurd 78% of his passes in this span of time.

Highest catch % among WRs since 2015 (min 300 targets):

This offseason, the Lions brought back Amendola and it was likely for this reason. He is a stable, veteran pass catcher for the team and a guy the Lions can count on in a big way to make all the needed plays. These numbers only help prove why he was a top priority for the team.
