Jermichael Finley will donate to Boston bombing relief

No one ever accused Jermichael Finley of not having a good sense of humor.

The Green Bay Packers tight end has turned a weakness into a positive with the announcement that he'll donate $500 to One Fund Boston Inc. for every ball he drops this season. He'll do the same for every touchdown he catches.

"Now fans can cheer & boo me @ the same time!" Finley tweeted.

One Fund Boston was set up by Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick and Boston mayor Thomas M. Menino to raise money to assist those most affected by the Boston Marathon bombings Monday.

Packers fans have been most frustrated by Finley's drops over the years. He had seven drops on 87 targets last season. Finley caught two touchdown passes in 2012 and made a career-high eight touchdown catches in 2011.

Great cause. Great humor.
