Although he has no apparent connections to Boston, Jermichael Finley will lend a helping hand to the shell-shocked city. The Packers tight end tweeted Thursday that he'll donate $500 for every touchdown he scores or pass he drops this upcoming season. The money will go to One Fund Boston Inc., which was developed by Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick and Boston mayor Thomas M. Menino to assist those affected by Monday's horrific bombings at the Boston Marathon. https://twitter.com/JermichaelF88/status/324896932222865408 It's a great gesture by Finley, whose inspiration likely came from Patriots receiver Danny Amendola's similar pledge. His humorous quip about being booed ties into the fact that Green Bay fans have long expressed frustration with Finley's inconsistent hands. Last season, Finley recorded just two touchdown receptions and seven drops.
