In just a little over a month, Danny Amendola has upped his title from new Patriots acquisition to probable community hero.
Following Monday's tragic events at the Boston Marathon, where three people were killed and more than 100 were injured, Amendola pledged to donate $100 for each reception and $200 for each drop he records next season to the Boston Marathon Relief Fund.
He made the announcement on Twitter.
The 27-year-old wideout appeared in 11 games with the Rams last season, totaling 63 catches. In New England's prolific offense, however, Amendola figures to nearly double that total as Wes Welker's slot successor.
For the sake of those who were so needlessly affected in such a heinous attack, let's hope Amendola gets the ball early and often this fall.
