Wide receiver and return specialist Trindon Holliday, who first broke onto the scene returning kicks and punts for the Broncos, has joined another AFC West team, according to Rand Getlin of Yahoo! Sports. Getlin reports (via Twitter) that the Raiders have signed Holliday to a contract.
Holliday, 29, was a dynamic return man for Denver in 2012 and 2013, bringing back a total of four kicks and punts for touchdowns over the course of those two regular seasons. As a member of the Broncos in the 2012 postseason, Holliday became the first player to return a punt and a kickoff for a touchdown in the same playoff game.
However, the Broncos decided not to tender a contract to Holliday when he was eligible for restricted free agency a year ago, leading to a 2014 campaign in which the former sixth-round pick bounced around from team to team and battled injuries along the way. Holliday had stints with the Giants, Buccaneers, and 49ers in 2014, and was ultimately cut by San Francisco in April.
Terms of the agreement haven’t been reported, but I’d expect a one-year, minimum salary contract for the LSU alum.
