The Denver Broncos acquired Trindon Holliday from the waiver wires on Oct. 10, and the newest and smallest addition hasn’t taken long to make a name for himself.
Holliday returned a kickoff 105 yards for a touchdown against the Cincinnati Bengals last week to help the Broncos to a 31-23 win. For that feat, he was awarded AFC special teams player of the week honors. Holliday is just 5’5,” 170 pounds, but he had three touchdown returns in preseason as a Houston Texan.
When the Texans released Holliday, the Broncos quickly jumped at the chance to sign him to provide a spark for the return game.
Holliday may just be the fastest guy in the NFL, and he’s made the Broncos a scoring threat even without Peyton Manning on the field. The 105-yard return was the longest scoring play in Broncos history.
