After Wes Welker bolted to Denver via free agency, newly acquired receiver Danny Amendola has received a mixed response here in New England due to his injury history and because of who he was replacing.

Late Monday night he may have changed a few minds after the former Rams wideout made quite a promise following the devastating bombing that happened at the Boston Marathon.  The veteran has pledged to donate $100 for every pass he catches during the 2013 season, as well as $200 for any dropped pass:

That's quite a gesture from a guy who is new to the area and hasn't even played a game in front of fans here in New England yet. However, after last night he's made quite an impression and as a result touched plenty of people thanks to this promise.  

Needless to say it's just one more reason to root for him to have a productive year here in New England.
