As we await the Chiefs roster cuts, the Denver Broncos have already had a busy day cutting former 2nd round pick Tim Crowder and signing former Kansas City DE Vonnie Holliday.
The 6-foot-5, 288-pound Holliday was a solid defensive tackle/end for the Green Bay Packers from 1998-2002 before moving on to Kansas City and the Miami Dolphins. He will be expected to play both the 5-technique defensive end and nose tackle positions in the Broncos’ 3-4 defensive alignment.
“He’s versatile so he can play wherever the team decides to play him,” said Holliday’s agent Cary Fabrikant. “He’s an extremely talented football player who’s been a starter for long periods of time. He’s familar with the defense.”
Holliday, 33, had worked out for the Broncos during the free-agent period in March. He recently became a priority when newly acquired DE Le Kevin Smith suffering a knee injury.
Although Holliday did not go to training camp with any team this summer, Fabrikant says his client is in top physical condition through spinning, yoga and pilates.
The New Englad Patriots kicked Holliday’s tires last month, but did not sign him after their workout.
Good luck getting anything out of Holliday, Josh.
