Breathe easy, New England Patriots fans: Brandon Bolden will be back.
The Patriots put a quick end to region-wide anxiety Saturday by re-signing the veteran running back/special teamer to a one-year contract, according to ESPN’s Field Yates. The 28-year-old won’t exactly receive a huge payday, however.
The 2018 season will mark Bolden’s seventh in New England, as he once again will offer depth in the backfield and skill on special teams.
Still, Patriots fans likely are more concerned with the futures of running backs Dion Lewis and Rex Burkhead, who will become free agents March 14.
