On May 15th, 2012 ESPNBoston.Com's Mike Reiss blogged that the "Patriots signed seven rookie free agents after the draft, and looking at the signing bonus/guaranteed money each player received is a good reflection of how they were valued and what type of competition the club faced from others to sign them. Here is the rundown:...RB Brandon Bolden (Mississippi) -- $15,000....ANALYSIS:....Meanwhile, Bolden was arguably the top running back available after the draft, so it's likely the Patriots were bidding against others, which drove up the price. All deals for rookie free agents were three years."

A call for a donation

A long-time family friend, my youngest sister's best friend, is on the board of directors of a soup kitchen and food pantry in Malden, Massachusetts that provided in 2015 the equivalent of 1,030,000 meals to hungry, homeless and isolated people. I am asking that if you have found my salary cap pages useful that if you are able to do so, please make a donation to the Bread of Life soup kitchen/food pantry.
