Amendola to donate per catch to Boston Marathon Relief Funds

New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola hasn't been a Bostonian for very long, but he has done a selfless thing in response to the Boston Marathon tragedy.

As if we weren't hoping he'd put up a Wes Welker type year enough already. But this shows what kind of a player we've acquired. Not just a good football player, but a good guy. And in times like this, that's the most important thing.

I know all Patriots fans have a strong affinity with Boston, no matter where in the world they're from. It's no different for me in the UK. Stay strong Boston, my thoughts are with you all at this time.
