Burleson Vows On Twitter To Donate Money To Schools Based On Drops

By Ashley Dunkak

After dropping a pass that turned into an interception in the the Detroit Lions’ last preseason game, wide receiver Nate Burleson pledged on Twitter that he would not drop another pass and that if he did he would give $100 to an elementary school for every drop of the season.

Within the span of an hour and a couple tweets, though, Burleson upped the ante and gave the schools incentive to root for him rather than against him.

Burleson dropped just one pass in 2012, so he has a good shot of meeting that no-drops goal. Whether he meets that mark or not, Burleson invests in the community in many ways, donating money but also participating in various events.
