Slade Bolden Gets Workout with New England Patriots
Former Alabama wide receiver Slade Bolden is reportedly set to work out with the New England Patriots.
The Patriots are no strangers to bringing in former Crimson Tide personnel, as quarterback Mac Jones and offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien are both currently on the team in the same positions, along with defensive lineman Christian Barmore.
Bolden played with Jones during the 2020 season, where he caught his first career touchdown reception from the quarterback in Alabama's 2021 College Football Playoff National Championship win against Ohio State. He also played under Bill O'Brien at Alabama during the 2021 season.
In his career at Alabama, Bolden totaled 68 receptions for 712 yards and four touchdowns. After the 2021 season, he decided to forgo his final year of eligibility and enter the draft.
Bolden went undrafted in the 2022 NFL Draft and signed with the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent. After suffering a sports hernia injury during the summer and not appearing in any preseason games, he was waived by the Ravens and placed on the team's injured reserve in August, and was released in mid-October.
Since his release from the Ravens, he has worked out with the Cleveland Browns and Kansas City Chiefs.
