Slade Bolden, former Alabama WR, reportedly receives NFL workout, possible Crimson Tide reunion
Slade Bolden is reportedly getting another shot to land on an NFL team. The New England Patriots, who have a notable Alabama flavor on offense, are set to work out Bolden.
The former Alabama wide receiver played at Alabama with QB Mac Jones, and then under Bill O’Brien, the new offensive coordinator with the Patriots. He was a 2022 undrafted free agent with Ravens, and is considered healthy after a sports hernia. He was released by the Ravens in August after he suffered the injury.
In January, Bolden worked out for the Kansas City Chiefs.
Bolden appeared in 30 games during his Alabama career, and made 68 catches for 712 yards and 4 touchdowns. His best performance in an Alabama uniform came against Tennessee in 2020, when he made 6 catches for 94 yards.
While much of the NFL’s attention is focused in Indianapolis at the combine, a note back home: Free-agent WR Slade Bolden is scheduled to work out for the Patriots.
Played at Alabama with Mac Jones, and then under Bill O’Brien. 2022 UDFA with Ravens. Healthy after sports hernia.
