The New England Patriots signed the running back to a one-year extension worth $880K, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Saturday. Bolden was set to be a free agent, but will return to the defending AFC champions for around the veteran's minimum.
This is the second consecutive one-year pact Bolden has signed with the team.
Bolden has spent his entire six-year career with New England. After carrying the ball over 200 times through his first four seasons, Bolden has since been relegated to a part-time player on offense, but a well-utilized piece on special teams in the mold of Matthew Slater.
