Giants enjoy a little Holliday

Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie wasn’t the only Bronco signed by the Giants on Monday.

They’ve also signed receiver/kick returner Trindon Holliday.  Per a league source, it’s a one-year deal.

Holliday, who has four combined return touchdowns in his regular-season career and scored two (one punt, one kickoff) in a January 2013 playoff loss to the Ravens, was a restricted free agent but the Broncos didn’t make a tender offer.  He visited the Falcons before agreeing to terms with the Giants.

He’s a Giant while anything but, standing a mere five feet and five inches tall.  Still, he’s shown that he can be a difference maker.  Holliday will get a chance to continue an impressive career in New York.

  1. The excitement and apprehension when he fields the kick are palpable. you never know if you’re going to get a great return or a turnover, but it’s fun to watch.

  2. Will be great to finally have a solid KR for once. That’s always been an area we address at the last possible second. Great signing!

  3. See what happened was Chip Kelly came into town and now the Eagles are looking like an exciting and more importantly a winning team. The Giants used to be able and watch most of these teams kill themselves, like Dallas who always blows it and like Washington who typically does the same. The Giants knew they had to go out and get good people if they want to win the division/championship.

  4. Wow….Reese is going all out to save his job and I cant say I blame him. I have to wonder though….how the heck are we paying JPP and Prince next year (antrelle comes off the books and that’s big, but I was hoping we could keep him)?

  5. The return that convinced me I didnt want him on the broncos anymore was when he HAD to hang onto the ball, only to get wrapped-up and simultaneously get tackled and stripped of the ball by one person. He’s not going to always be able to run out of bounds or to the endzone.

    and that’s if he catches the ball

  6. I love watching him return kickoffs, that’s some exciting football. He has fumbling issues but is always a threat to run one back.

  7. Giant fans should regard this signing with caution as he is equally adept at fumbling as scoring. And when he tanks, he tanks. This from a broncos fan.

  8. A washed up CB and a fumbling KR. nice job Philadelphia OWNED NJG. Looks like it’s another season of being owned by the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles got Sproles and the NJG got the trash. LOL

  9. Dude has all the talent in the world but is a turnover machine at the worst times.

    You Giants will will learn to hold your breath when the ball is kicked to him. He is either going to break off a long run or something very bad is going to happen.

  10. Congrats on winning the Offseason Super Bowl!

    You get to join such legendary teams such as the 2009 Redskins, the 2011 Eagles, and the 2013 Dolphins.

  11. He cant catch punts (gets scared and muffs it) and when he does catch it, he will usually fumble whether it be from a hit or dropping it before the endzone.

  12. As always, Mike Brown is asleep during the offseason. Dalton needs weapons. He is already arguably the best QB in the league, but he is Dan Marino without any talent around him. He would already have three rings with half of the league’s receiving corps. This is a joke. He has AJ Green and no one else. He puts his team on his back every game.

  13. Take it from a Bronco fan. This guy is explosive but he is a major liability. He’ll bobble kick offs that will leave you shaking your head. He went from our punt and kick off return guy to just our kick off return guy because he makes poor decisions and cant catch the ball. Guy is fast but good luck.

  14. this guy is going to give the giants coach a heart attack. I mean did they watch any tape on this guy. They need to spray an entire can of superglue on his hands when they send him out there. He’s fast but will be in the dog house by mid year.

  15. Dan Graziano notwithstanding, the Giants have done a lot more than I expect with free agency. I can’t say they are there yet, but they are a lot closer than I would have hoped.

  16. To all the haters out there.You make me laugh.Fumbles,that’s all you can come up with.The guy is a dynamic kick returner and he will give our kick and punt return game a boost like we haven’t had since Dave Meggett. Just wait until the draft.Oh did I mention we have the 12th pick.

  17. Yeah lic112014 thats what we come up with FUMBLES. Theres only 2 things the guy can do on a play catch and fumble or catch and run. He catches and fumbles a lot. I know because i watched every game. You think the broncos would let him go if he didnt fumble??? The answer is no. Hes a huge liability/ Im bummed for the guy because he has so much potential but he just blows it. You wait and see.

  18. As a Denver fan… Seriously folks, this guy will cost you more games than win them for you.. That’s why he was yanked in the playoffs in favor of Welker/Decker… Good luck..

  19. Giants fans calling this a win are about to learn why we called him Heart Attack Holliday in Denver. The man is an absolute burner, but he has small hands and a diminutive frame. You can’t coach his hands to be bigger. He’s got a great heart and I wish him well. But he’ll continue to lose half the balls he goes after. Texans cut him mid season and the Broncos didn’t tender him. It isn’t rocket science.

  20. Pre season will be his proving ground. One year deal with nothing for Giants to lose. Up-side is he brings competition and excitement to camp, makes special teams try harder, a reason to play smarter, block better. Can Coughlin teach him how not to fumble? (Remember Tiki)

  21. To Giant haters out there, you make some good points about risk, but EVERY team has make changes. Look flaws ,each of your teams has & how they are rolling the dice in off season, try and improve.
    We desperately need new playmakers, chemistry had last 2 years been horrible. On paper this looks
    interesting now, but who knows. We have seen Eagles, Jets, Redskins and other teams win offseason Super bowl. Understand Fun taking jabs at other teams, But the Philly fans really make one have to laugh, Guys not to tuff Dusting the Trophy Case down in Cheese land, that – very bare Super bowl Cub bard you have. Don’t even need any Silver polish or pledge ! Giants look better on paper, who knows….good news for all teams was Kansas City and their phenomenal turnaround. What makes Football better for fans than baseball, competitive balance truly gives all teams a chance !
