Pats' Amendola pledges $100 per catch to Marathon relief fund

Danny Amendola signed a five-year, $31 million deal with the Patriots last month. On Monday, hours after two bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marthon -- killing three and injuring more than 125 -- Amendola took to Twitter to offer his support.

Amendola, who spent the first four years of his NFL career in St. Louis, hauled in 63 passes last season. In New England, he'll replace Wes Welker, who averaged 112 receptions a season during his six years with the Pats.

But don't expect too many $200 donations; as MassLive.com's Nick Underhill points out, Amendola dropped two passes last season, which works out to a drop rate of 3.13 percent, good for sixth-lowest in the league.

NFL players, both current and former, have offered their support in the wake of the Boston Marathon tragedy. On Monday, former Patriots offensive lineman Joe Andruzzi, among the first responders on the scene, was photographed carrying an injured woman to safety.
