Bolden spent four years in Tuscaloosa totaling 68 catches for 712 yards and four touchdowns in 30 career games. After the 2021 season, Bolden had one more remaining year of eligibility due to a redshirt, but chose to forego it and enter the 2022 NFL draft where he went undrafted, but was later signed by the Baltimore Ravens as a free agent.
His decision to give up a year of eligibility came as a surprise to many as he would have been a leading receiver on the 2022 Alabama team and didn’t have a ton of college film for NFL teams.
During training camp, Bolden suffered an injury and was placed on the injured reserved and was set to miss the majority of his rookie season. Unfortunately, the Ravens ultimately decided to release him two months later in October. He just turned 24 at the beginning of this year and will get another chance at making it in the league.
Atlanta is in the midst of a rebuild, which leaves a door cracked for Bolden to make the 53-man roster.
