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.— Danny Amendola (@DannyAmendola) April 16, 2013
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.
