Here you go: UDFA Signing Tracker (UPDATE: 7:35 PM) | NFL Rough Draft
So you're telling me me there's a chance?
Hope the Pats bring in Marquis Maze, Jeff Fuller, Dale Moss, Jarret Boykin, Chris Polk, Tauren Poole, Emil Igwenagu, Vontaze Burfict, and Chase Minnifield.
Chris Polk and Chase Minnifield must have flunked the drug test to not be drafted.
Minnifield is still coming back from microfracture surgery on his knee
Polk has a myriad of issues, most notably his shoulders.
Dale Moss went to Green Bay.
Why not support our own instead?

Burfict to da Bengals
Did the Jaguars REALLY just sign a Kicker named Long Ding??? :rofl:
That of course is PERFECT!! :singing:
Hope the Patriots really wanted Alfonso Dennard and not Antonio Dennard who signed with the Jags as an UDFA.
Knowing BB, Antonio Dennard is a special teams whiz and was who we really wanted.
Sure did. Great name.
I love the Forston signing. If he can stay healthy I think he's a good shot to make the roster. I think he would make a nice pairing with Fanene as interior sub rushers.
Same here. I love his motor.
NO ONE is excited about Bolden?
I am almost positive he will end up making the roster. Good size, productive in the SEC, good jumping/agility numbers, runs aggressively/decisively, can catch the ball, plays on special teams.

Forget his senior season, which was cut short by a suspension and injury. In his junior year he had 163 carries for 976 yards (6.0 ypc), with a long of 71 and 14 touchdowns. Bolden also recorded 32 receptions for 344 yards (10.8 ypc), with a long of 45 and 3 touchdowns. Those are good numbers in the SEC.
Oh, and he took over for the Law Firm. Let's make that twice in a row.

Good in the red zone. Productive. Decisive. I like this addition.
Andrew, has it been confirmed that we've signed Bolden? I know the NY Times reported it, but there are have been other reports that he signed with the Redskins, and I haven't seen any confirmation or report from the local beat writers.
IF the Pats signed Bolden then its a VERY exciting move, IMHO. He has MUCH more athleticism, big play ability and outside ability than BJGE, and he's in another league entirely as a receiver. In fact, I'd categorize as a big "flex back", to use OTG's terminology. He had 76 receptions in his college career. As you note, he's much more athletic than LawFirm - he had a 38" vertical and a 6.96 3-cone at the combine, so he has some amount of both explosion and lateral mobility.
Here's a couple of nice quotes from Bolden:
Again, I would be extremely excited if the Pats signed Bolden. A RB group of Vereen, Ridley, Woodhead and Bolden would do just fine by me.
I'm going off the Times piece that you referenced, as well as this report.
I see no reason why two fine journalistic publications would be wrong, but it is extremely odd that no one in the local media has picked up the story.
Good to have you back around, by the way. I've always enjoyed our conversations.
Thanks. Hadn't seen it posted on NEPatriotsDraft. They're normally very realiable, so that's reassuring.
