With Damien Wilson now out of the picture, more snaps in the linebacker rotation should be available, and Bolton figures to be the top candidate to handle a chunk of those if he shows well during training camp. He joins a linebacking corps with Anthony Hitchens, Willie Gay, and Ben Niemann as the other primary contributors. Read Past Outlooks
