Former Georgia tight end Benjamin Watson has donated a significant amount to UGA’s Devon Gales fundraiser, and he wants other former Bulldogs players to do the same.
On Monday, Watson tweeted a screenshot from his family fund that showed a $10,000 donation to help build Gales a new home. Gales fractured his C6 vertebrae when Georgia played Southern in 2015. Georgia announced the campaign to raise funds to help build the home Saturday.

Watson wasn’t satisfied with his personal donation, though. He wants others former Georgia players to join in the effort.
Watson, now a member of the Baltimore Ravens, tweeted to former players such as A.J. Green, Todd Gurley, Malcolm Mitchell and Geno Atkins, among others, and urged them to contribute to the campaign.
This is a cool move by Watson, and it would be great if other former Georgia players sent money as well. Watson had 852 yards receiving with 6 touchdowns for the Bulldogs from 2001-03.
