As it turns out, the “cheesiest headline” contest has not been confined to the signing of draft picks.
We’ve officially expanded it to include veterans, too.
Per Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com, veteran defensive end Vonnie Holliday will be visiting the New England Patriots on Monday.
FOXSports.com reported last week that the Pats are poking around veteran defensive end Kevin Carter, too.
The idea would be to use Holliday and/or Carter to provide depth to the team’s rotation.
If the Pats ink Holliday, they will have on their roster three first-round picks from the 1998 draft: Holliday (No. 19), running back Fred Taylor (No. 9), and receiver Randy Moss (No. 21).
The Patriots had two first-rounders of their own that year — running back Robert Edwards and safety Tebucky Jones, who has now been mentioned in this space more times in the past day than he had been in the prior three years combined.
