Danny Amendola may be new on the scene in New England, but he has already become part of the community.
The former St. Louis Rams receiver who joined the Patriots via free agency last month plans to be very generous in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings Monday that killed three people and injured at least 170 more injured.
He tweeted that night:
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.

In an injury-shortened 2012 season, Amendola caught 63 passes and dropped just two in 11 games. Projected out to a 16-game season, that comes out to 92 catches and three drops -- or a $9,800 donation.
