After being let go and returning a few times before, it doesn't look like it will happen again with Brandon Bolden and the Patriots.

According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, Bolden is in Miami and planning on signing with the Dolphins.

Bolden had been with the Patriots since 2012 when he was signed as an undrafted free agent. He was a core special teams player, but was able to fill in at running back when needed. In his seven seasons, he totaled 916 rushing yards and six touchdowns.

Despite being just a special teams player, he was one of the most popular players in the Patriots locker room and will be missed.

Many assumed he would return at some point this week, like he has in the past after getting released, but it seems like that will not be the case.
