Bolden has begun making a convincing case for a roster spot, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Largely a practice-squad player since going undrafted in 2017, Bolden has one reception to his name over 15 games as a pro. However, Detroit arguably has the worst receiving corps in the league, not to mention a vacancy at both punt and kick returner after Jamal Agnew signed a hefty contract with Jacksonville. Even though Bolden will have to beat out Kalif Raymond for one of those return-man roles, there still probably isn't a better place for an unestablished wideout like Bolden to make a name for himself, especially since Bolden already has experience returning kickoffs for the 49ers and Bills.
Bolden signed a reserve/future contract with the Lions on Tuesday. Bolden has been on the Lions' practice squad since October, but he was never elevated for a game. The 25-year-old wideout has just 15 NFL games on his resume, but he hasn't played since 2018.
The Lions signed Bolden to the practice squad Tuesday. Bolden spent training camp with the Lions but was cut from the practice squad in early September. The 25-year-old wide receiver banked 15 NFL games over his first three seasons and mainly contributed as a kick returner.
The Lions cut Bolden from the practice squad Wednesday. Bolden briefly linked with the Lions' practice squad after having been cut amid roster trims, but he'll now need to look for a chance with another organization. The return man hasn't seen regular-season action since 2018, when he appeared in two games with Buffalo and four games with the 49ers.
Bolden inked a reserve/future contract with Detroit on Monday. The 24-year-old offers more in the return game than on offense, as he's accumulated 512 kick return yards the past two seasons. Bolden failed to see action in the NFL for the 2019 campaign.
