Brandon Bolden: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Bolden gained 21 yards on three carries in Friday's preseason game against the Eagles.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis

Bolden is in line to face training camp competition from newcomers James White and Roy Finch, the Boston Globe reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

White, who the Patriots drafted in the fourth round of May's draft, is slated to serve as a complement/insurance policy for Shane Vereen, while Finch is a quick back who could help out as a returner. Bolden, meanwhile, can provide utility as a hard-running backup to Stevan Ridley after running 55 times for 271 yards and three TDs in 12 games last season. With White a virtual lock to stick, Bolden will need to hold off Finch -- as well as Jonas Gray -- in order to retain his roster spot this season.
Bolden finished the 2013 season with 55 carries for 271 yards and three touchdowns, along with 21 catches for 152 yards in 12 games for the Patriots.

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Bolden figures to directly compete with newcomer LeGarrette Blount for a depth role behind presumed starter Stevan Ridley. Both are bruising backs and unless injuries hit the team's other backfield options during the preseason, it's quite possible that only one of the two will make the team's final roster.

2012

A fractured ankle that Bolden suffered as a senior, plus a one-game suspension he was handed, probably caused him to slide out of the draft, but he'll take aim at cracking a New England backfield that also includes Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen, Danny Woodhead and Joseph Addai. Even if he doesn't make the team's final roster, he could end up on the team's practice squad out of the gate, as fellow undrafted free agent BenJarvus Green-Ellis did.
