Default Vonnie Holliday to visist Broncos

Free agent DL Vonnie Holliday is scheduled to visit the Broncos on Thursday and the Lions sometime early next week.

Denver is ready to challenge for the league's oldest defense. Holliday, 33, would at least be an immediate starter there, likely at defensive end opposite Darrell Reid. Holliday would play tackle for Jim Schwartz in Detroit

Old school, but has been productive recently. Can't hurt to look.

Nolan needs to find some kind of stability with the defense and bringing in value experienced leaders is the way forward until some of our younger players learn the system and we blend in some rooks.

I can see the draft now.

With the #12 pick the Denver Broncos select.....Rod Woodson, CB, NFL Network.

who cares if they are old, we need a defense NOW, and will start filling in/replacing players on D in the draft.

He'd be a good fit on the DL in a 3-4. Plus, any young DL they end up drafting don't have to start right away and can play in a rotation to give older guys like Holliday rest.

Interesting article:

http://miamiherald.typepad.com/dolph...-thursday.html


It should not surprise that McDaniels is interested in the former Miami players. All three -- Hill, Goodman and Holliday -- came to Miami because Nick Saban brought them. McDaniels's first job as a coach came at Michigan State in 1999 under, who else, Saban.

So something about the type of player Saban likes obviously rubbed off on McDaniels. It also doesn't hurt, I'm sure, that McDaniels saw Hill and Goodman and, yes, Holliday, twice every season when he was an assistant at New England.

Holliday led all Miami defensive linemen in tackles and sacks last season despite playing only 56 percent of the downs.

Holiday played for the Chiefs for a few years and was horrendous. I think i'd rather spend my money else-where. How about Bertrand Berry, he has been more productive then Holiday. Shaun Cody is antoher big bodied D-linemen, and I know some might not like this guy due to his character issues, but Tank Johnson can play.

Worth a look then.

Would be a solid pickup. He's a little long in the tooth, but still productive, plus if you draft a couple of kids they likely won't be ready to start right off the bat.
