The 27-year-old has bounced around the NFL a bit since going undrafted out of Purdue in 2015. The 6-foot-5 Holmes has had stints with the Raiders, Seahawks, Ravens, and Cardinals. He’s appeared in 10 games during three-year career, including eight this season with Arizona. He finished the season with a single special-teams tackle.
Considering his size, Holmes has always profiled as more of a blocking tight end, although he did haul in five touchdowns during his collegiate career. Holmes could end up being an option to replace impending free agent tight end Ryan Hewitt, who appeared in 12 games (two starts) this season but only hauled in a single catch (which also happened to be a touchdown).
