Draft Scout Trindon Holliday News
10/06/14 - WR Trindon Holliday, who had been on the Giants' injured reserve e list with a hamstring strain, was released on Monday after receiving an injury settlement from the team.
08/31/14 - WR Trindon Holliday (hamstring/IR) had told reporters last week that he hoped to be able to practice when the Giants return from their long weekend. It's likely that at some point, the Giants and Holliday will come to an injury settlement, which would allow him to come off IR and pursue an opportunity with another team.
08/15/14 - WR Trindon Holliday (hamstring) remains unable to practice and will not play against the Colts. Holliday is in danger of not making the Giants roster.
03/18/14 - WR Trindon Holliday was signed by the Giants.
Holliday, who last season scored on a 105-yard kickoff return and an 81-yard punt return against the Giants, became the latest player to move to MetLife Stadium. He will join safety Quintin Demps, one of Sunday's acquisitions, as players expected to give the Giants' returns a much-needed jolt.
Holliday is the second former member of the AFC champion Broncos to sign with the Giants in the last day, joining cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
"It's great to get an opportunity to come out and be part of another team," Holliday said. "I'm signed to do a job and that's come in and help this team out on special teams as best as possible. I'll be ready to report.
"The team's going in the right direction. The Giants are trying to get back to their winning ways. This offseason has had some good things and I look forward to the rest."
Holliday's most recent memory MetLife Stadium was unpleasant -- his Broncos were crushed by the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII, 43-8.
"It's not a very good one at all, but I'm willing to change those things around this season," he said.
Although he is just 5-foot-5 and 170 pounds, Holliday's speed and elusiveness have made him one of the NFL's most dangerous return specialists.
"Sometimes, I think my size is an advantage," Holliday said. "I can field the kicks and hide behind those big linemen when the other guys are coming down. It's hard for them to see me."
However, he lost his return job because of fumbling issues last season, and he said about coming to the Giants and coach Tom Coughlin, "We had the discussions already. He said him and me were going to get real acquainted with ball security. I don't have a problem with that. I've have had some miscues of handling the ball, but it's not going to take much for me to fix that."
In 31 regular-season games over three seasons, he has returned 80 punts for 752 yards (9.4-yard average) and two touchdow
01/09/14 - KR/PR Trindon Holliday could be an X-factor in Sunday's game -- assuming he can overcome his proclivity for bobbles. Holliday returned a punt and a kickoff for a touchdown in last year's divisional playoff loss to Baltimore and has two touchdowns this season, but has fumbled five times this year -- once every 12 returns.
