|So what else is new?
Six years since talking his way into an http://www.coltsshopauthentic.com/shop-by-players-1-pat-mcafee-jersey-c-1_2.html opportunity here at Gillette Stadium, Bolden is used to life on the edge.
ďI didnít expect to be here the first couple days actually. I told Bill [Belichick] first day if you give me the opportunity, Iím going to run with it, and I doubt youíll catch me,Ē said Bolden. ďHeís still playing chase back there.Ē
Bolden, a Mississippi product, ran for four yards last year. Four. And he hasnít run for a TD since 2014. Still, here he is, fighting for a job for the sixth time in Patriots camp.
ďThatís something you have to ask Bill. I gave up on that question a long time ago, I donít know, why am I still here,Ē said the two-time Super Bowl champ. ďI gave up on that. I just put my head down and work every day, itís worked for me. Here we take every phase of the game seriously. I adopted that myself, so every time, itís called for me on special teams, I take it as seriously as possible. Like I said, itís worked for me in the past.
ďWhether itís offense, special teams, or they want me to go out there and play the three technique on defense, Iíll go do that, too.Ē
Bolden, while a non-factor in the run game http://www.authentic49ersshop.com/shop-by-players-gerald-hodges-jersey-c-1_22.html recently, has been quite impactful in the kicking game. Itís the major reason heís here. He just hopes he can keep the run going.
ďIíve been here six years now. Itís all I know,Ē he said. ďI like it here. Iím very comfortable here. Iím into the program. Being here as long as I have, itís a part of me.Ē
