Holliday, following sub-par blocking, averaged 19.4 yards per kickoff return and 9.2 yards per punt return.
The Broncos are averaging 18.9 yards per kickoff and 7.4 per punt, so he looks like an upgrade.
A sprinter at LSU in college, Holliday may be useful to Peyton out of the backfield and in the slot in a Darren Sproles-type role. Holliday has no regular season carries or receptions, and had been selected in the 6th round (197th overall) of the 2010 Draft by the Texans. At 2-3, the Broncos need to catch up to the Chargers, starting with this Monday night’s crucial game in San Diego.
The Indianapolis Colts put in a waiver claim on him as well.
