    "Denver defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio calls Omar Bolden the Broncos' Swiss Army knife.

    The third-year defensive back from Arizona State adds a dose of versatility to a defense packed with Pro Bowlers and gives Del Rio the ability to sprinkle in some exotic formations.

    Last year I wasn't very impressed with Bolden. This year he has picked it up in a number of different ways

        Last few years I would have cut this guy at camp both times...

        Boy was I wrong about him, he has really turned his career around, good job on serving me up some crow.
