    The Patriots just signed Brandon Bolden!

    While everyone else was watching the Gaffney deal go down I was waiting for the BJGE replacement and surprise he just signed!I know he's BJGE's replacement because he went to Mississippi! He's a carbon copy,he rushed for 937 yards last year with 14 rushing TD's. He has skills as they say in the game,he returns kicks and was a gunner on the return teams and get this he catches the ball as well,not that he will ever see a pass in New England and this I know for sure because they have WR's coming out of the woodworks playing in New England.

    According to Bleacher Report he signed with Washington

    Do you have a different link?

    Sounds good . . . I still expect a veteran at some point, but I never thought BB would go into the season with just three RBs and a FB.

    Interesting.  Since they haven't signed a veteran, they must be set with Ridley, Vereen, Woodhead and Bolden. They still need more, IMO.  I'd go after Grant at this point.

    He had some injury issues, but he's got some decent size at 5'11 215.

    He signed with the Pats. He Tweeted it.

    I think with all the young guys (Ridley and Vereen), a veteran makes more sense than a rookie for the 53-man roster, but bringing in additional young guys for competition (and practice squad development) is also a good move.

     Anybody have a definitive link as to whether Bolden is heading to Massachusetts or Washington,D.C.?I haven't seen either site repeal their intitial claim.

    Patriots.

    It was a false report, as Tweeted by Bolden himself.

    "Although bleacherreport.com reported on April 30, 2012 that he had agreed to a free agent contract with the Washington Redskins, Bolden later tweeted that report was false. On May 2, 2012, a NY Times blog reported that he had signed a free agent deal with the New England Patriots."

    Boldin comes with a bunch of baggage in the way of suspensions and just being a bonehead. He might make for good camp competition or stashed away on PS but not sure if he earns a spot over any of the current FB's currently signed.

    If Brian Burke signs him, he's probably a bust . . .

    Eng, bleacherreport says he has a bunch of baggage, but I could find only one reference to a suspension and no other reports of bad behaviour. He was suspended with three other team members for one game for "breaking team rules."  (No specifics provided.)

    Other than that, I can't find anything negative about him . . . do you know of anything else?

    I know he was suspended in the 2011 season. For some reason I thought he was suspended in 2010 too. He's a profootball weekly scouting report citing lack of maturity and the 2011 suspension.

    The real question here is, did she charge you or give you a family discount?

    He ran a 4.51 at his pro day, with a much better 20 yard dash than at the combine.  That's good.  He still has to make the 53 player limit or go on the practice squad.  Lots and lots of players are going to get cut this year.  90 players in preseason minus 53 in September leaves 37 guys scrambling and waiting by the phone.

    P.S. if Bolden is on the field, Brady is going to try to throw to him.

    Excellent, Ridley, Woodhead, Vareen and now a guy who was signed by the Redskins get to pick up a blitz by Jason Pierre Paul in next years SB. We should be fine.

    I think if the Pats truly wish to establish the run game, they have a great lead blocking back in Fiametta if he is healthy. I think he must be included in the backfield numbers if the Pats are serious about establishing the running game.

    He's a pretty good back, wonder why a guy like him goes undrafted while vereen and ridley are 2nd and 3rd round picks. Is there that much of a difference? Baggage? I don't know, just curious.

    Posted by patsfan76[/QUOTE]

    They were both pretty good in the limited time that they played last year, I just wasn't sure what the deal was with Bolden, why nobody drafted him. I never saw him play but his stats look pretty good and he plays in the tough SEC.
