article imagePatriots player will donate $100 for every catch to marathon fund

By Marcus Hondro     Apr 17, 2013 in Sports
This is a tweet New England Patriots receiver Danny Amendola on Tuesday: "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."
Amendola, who is from Texas, is heading into his first season with the Patriots after playing with the St. Louis Rams the first four seasons of his career. He is expected to replace star Wes Welker, who signed with the Denver Broncos during the off-season.
Due to injuries, he's only had one season in the NFL in which he played all of his team's 16 games, the 2010 season, and in that season he caught 85 passes, which would make for a tidy $8,500 donation. Drops? Those stats aren't readily available but will doubtless add up.
Amendola, beginning a 5 year $31 million contract, has over 45,000 twitter followers.
