Broncos rookie CB Bolden full go after ACL tear

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Denver Broncos rookie Omar Bolden considers himself a budding cornerback and CEO.

To think, an injury on the field led him to become an inspirational entrepreneur off it.

Bolden tore the ACL in his left knee during spring practice at Arizona State in 2011. There went another season.

Usually such an affable and upbeat person, Bolden slipped into a funk over the prospect of sitting out again. Soon, those feelings turned into a vision as he hit on an idea: What can he do to brighten someone's day?

Like that, he created a "Positive Living" movement. He began a website touting the benefits of optimistic thinking and designed elastic bracelets.

With that venture taking off, he's now eager to begin his other business: Being a shutdown cornerback for the Broncos.
