AFC Special Teams Player of the Week Accolades to Trindon Holliday


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.
