Default Broncos Sign Vonnie Holliday

http://www.denverpost.com/broncos/ci_13277682

The Broncos completed a deal today for veteran defensive end Vonnie Holliday.

The 6-foot-5, 288-pound Holliday was a solid defensive tackle/end for the Green Bay Packers from 1998-2002 before moving on to Kansas City and the Miami Dolphins. He will be expected to play both the 5-technique defensive end and nose tackle positions in the Broncos' 3-4 defensive alignment.

"He's versatile so he can play wherever the team decides to play him," said Holliday's agent Cary Fabrikant. "He's an extremely talented football player who's been a starter for long periods of time. He's familar with the defense."

Holliday, 33, had worked out for the Broncos during the free-agent period in March. He recently became a priority with newly acquired DE Le Kevin Smith suffering a knee injury.

Although Holliday did not go to training camp with any team this summer, Fabrikant says his client is in top physical condition through spinning, yoga and pilates.

He will be a good addition to the defense.

Solid signing.

Some football players even get into gymnastics and even ballet.

Great Signing... I'm still a little confused why he was on the street this long but good signing none the less.

now the question is, how long until he is in "Football Shape"

I don't know man... I think it takes more Dynamic stretching to instill the proper "toughness"... but here's to hoping for the best.

I like it, just have to question why he waited so long, and why seemingly there wasn't more competition for his services.

reading between the lines it seems to me like they had some sort of handshake deal....he likes this system the best of his other options and the Broncos were ok with him missing camp.

It sure seems like it. This guy was an impact player on a successful 3-4 D last year. With all the teams transitioning to the 3-4 (Queefs, Packers, maybe others), you would think this guy would have been scooped up by now.

Then again, if I was a ten year vet, the prospect of skipping camp would be mighty tempting.
