On May 10, 2012, undrafted Ole Miss running back Brandon Bolden signed his first NFL contract. Inking a three-year, $1.45 million deal with the New England Patriots sent Bolden down the same road as another 5’11”, 220-pound undrafted Runnin’ Rebel with dreadlocks named BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
The comparisons to New England’s former 1,000-yard rusher were there from the onset. But it would take more than comparisons for Bolden to stick around Foxborough, Mass.
It would take ability.
