Didn't this guy get released for fumbling too much and otherwise making terrible decisions?

The *last* thing we need is more turnovers.

No he was cut to make way for Ruud to help with the injures at MLB.

Let's just hope the lightning doesn't strike us instead.

So adding a player that can do something isn't a good idea? The guy that Holliday replaced wouldn't ever see the field.

How will we ever survive without Duke Ihenacho!?!?

I guess they compared the 2, and Holliday's returns trump Ihenacho's sitting on the bench doing nothing.

ANY player 'can do something good'. the question is whether the player is worth a damn or not. i defer to elway to determine that but personally do not see anything in his regular season performance against first teamers that would suggest this. the guy made the roster off pre-season performances, which is fair but not indicative of how he might perform with real bullets flying. the record he has during real games is pretty shaky, isn't it?

barrett ruud trumps both, considering brooking is concussed, slow and unreliable as a tackler anymore and mays is a whiff machine. ruud is who the texans signed. duke should get to stay just on the awesomeness of his name.

I can't believe people are mad about this I actually jumped for joy when I saw we signed him speed kills and now we have a weapon in the KR/PR game.

This dude is FAST! If you don't like this pick up I guess you like slow old white guys returning punts for 5 yards every time.

Remember that Hixon guy?

Sometimes it takes awhile to click.

IMO he saves two active roster spots come game time. Emergency 4th WR which is Caldwell or Willis and KR/PR which is Bolden. It's a good move.

Not that I don't like it, just think Omar Bolden can do the job.

You... do realize the makeup of most squad's special teams units, right? They're not exactly the 5-mil-a-year guys.

6.8 yards at a time....but no fumbles.

I think if he can help us out, and not turn the ball over then yeah, he's a good pick-up. It wil be interesting to see how he does Monday night.

Holliday can just take some of the molasses that's stuck to the bottom of Leonhard's shoes and put it on his hands.Problem solved.

It's not like Denver traded 3 first round picks for the guy.

Denver didn't trade Von Miller to get him.

Low risk pick up....bring him in to see if he can energize the return game.
