New England Patriots Roster Recap: Running Backs
6 of 8
Brandon Bolden, age 27
Brandon Bolden is one of the many unsung heroes behind New England’s success.
Since signing with the team as an undrafted free agent following the 2012 draft, Bolden has carved out a niche role for himself. In five seasons, Bolden has totaled 845 yards and six touchdowns as a running back. As a receiver, he’s had 46 catches, 366 yards, and two touchdowns. In his time as a defender on special teams, Bolden has collected nineteen tackles.
Bolden doesn’t seem like much of an asset to New England, but he’s a crucial cog to the team’s success. Whether it’s blocking a punt or making a block on a punt return, Bolden does his job.
