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.
I will DONATE $100 for EVERY pass I catch next season to whatever "Boston Marathon Relief Fund" there is. And $200 for any dropped pass.

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.
