This explosive play couldn’t have come at a better time for this undrafted player as cuts loom over the 49ers players.

Bolden’s opportunity appeared late in the second quarter with San Francisco ahead 10-3. Bolden received the punt at the 10-yard line and then proceeded to seemingly stroll through the Chargers defense in what resulted in a 92-yard touchdown.
