Based on reader comments and the buzz he’s created from one mini-camp, Omar Bolden is quickly becoming a fan-favorite among the Denver Broncos‘ 2012 rookies. The fourth round pick added another reason for Broncos fans to appreciate him: he’s the first of Denver’s seven 2012 draft picks to sign his rookie contract, the Broncos announced Thursday.

We expect Bolden, drafted 101st overall, signed a four-year contract worth approximately $2 million. We’ll have more accurate numbers if and when they become available.
