Running back Brandon Bolden has spent his entire six-year career with the Patriots. He’s on track to spend at least one more in New England.

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Patriots have signed Bolden to a one-year deal. The contract is worth $880,000, and it includes $170,000 in guarantees.

Bolden appeared in every game last season, contributing mainly on special teams. He had 27 rushing yards and his only touchdown of the season in a divisional-round win over the Titans.

His career high as a rusher came during his rookie season, with 274 yards. Bolden had 67 yards during the 2017 regular season.

    desperate times in the off season when this warrants a mention
    ————————
    Not to a Pats or any real football fan – it’s having solid depth with quality utility players like Bolden that enable a team to stay consistently at the top in seasons like 2015 or 2017 when the Pats were one of the league’s most banged up teams. And enables teams like the Pats to stay consistently at the top despite the talent drain that in the Age of Parity effect all the best teams of each season.

    Its actually significant because no matter where he is on the depth chart he keeps popping up doing something significant here and there. Sure it seems like he is rarely used outside those monents, but they do keep gappening.

    Also hard worker good team guy to have around.

  3. It is always comical seeing these patriot lemmings homering every signing as the greatest signing of all time. It really is hilarious. This fanbase is such a joke

    Too bad he doesn’t play QB because Tom has seen better days. And I guess cheating will only get you so far.

    Lol, I see your little spelling difference in the name. Is ths a chippie account? TLP6 may be a notorious Patriots troll but this shows hes not the only troll going here.

  5. Brady loves him. He is a four unit special teams guy. Bill can hand him the ball if they are up big and want to rest guys or if they need a mudder.

    Lame, like you’re not really trying. If you can’t bring the A game don’t bother showing up.

    Ouch… You’re like the Bill Belichick of troll evaluators Lemmy.
    Don’t take it personal TLP6, I’m sure the Colts would give you a participation ribbon if you’re fan of theirs…

  9. 274 rushing yards in a season is totally awesome. How did the Patriots snag such a productive player? Luckily, he got that total down to 67 yards last year. 2018 may bring him 0 yards or even negative yardage at this point. He’s a keeper!
