“I’ve had rocky years here and my goal is just to be a consistent player that [President of Football Operations/General Manager] Mr. [John] Elway and this organization can count on for many years,” Bolles said a few days ago. “I want to be here for a long time — I love the city, I love this fan base, my teammates, I love everything about [it] here, and I just want to win.”
This is quite the turnaround for Bolles, who ha really struggled in the first few years in the NFL. However, he appears to have turned a corner and managed to secure a decent contract from the Broncos.
Bolles, 28, is a former first-round pick by the Broncos in the 2017 NFL Draft out of Utah. He was in the final year of his four-year, $11,031,904 rookie contract and was making a base salary of $1,969,351 in 2020.
Bolles was in line to be an unrestricted free agent in 2021 after the Broncos declined to pick up his fifth-year option.
