Good signing, we need to get something out of punt returns.

He was electric in the preseason, but he absolutely sucked in the regular season. Any news on who we released to get him?

Very low risk high reward signing... Our return game has been absolutely embarrassing.

This does not sound like the Broncos I know. Signing a player that has very good upside but only plays KR/PR. Interesting... Anyone remember Quan Cosby?

Trindon killed the preseason with multiple return TD's but struggled this season thus far. Im interested to see what he can do.

Was surprised that the Texans released him. It can only go up after what Leonhard has done so far. Good move.

I've seen plenty Trindon Holliday, and I think he can be an asset. I watch the Texans a lot, and to me the Texans could have used him as an offensive weapon but chose to just have him doing returns. Probably they'll wait until he knows the system better to use him on offense if they do at all.

He did fumble once this season, and hasn't done anything so far but I like the signing. Size wise, he's a skinny Darren Sproles. He could bulk up I think.

At least he'll gain more than 5 yards for us.

Seriously. Leonhard has a 6.8 average on punts while Holliday's average is 9.2.

I was going to say this same thing.

Not to mention the fact that he didn't have the power to even break one tackle, or the speed to take it to the outside. Watching the Raiders game was so hard when Oakland punted. I mean Jim had what, 6 or 7 opportunities to show something? I'm pretty sure anything is better than him.

I just hope Holliday learns from his mistakes this season and doesn't take out a kick from 8 yards back in the endzone.

That kind of ticks me off. Nacho's at least got upside on the defensive side of the football. Leonhard has no upside there, and he wont be returning punts anymore.

I know Duke will be back on our practice squad if he's not claimed, but I wish they'd have just left him on the active roster, if for no other reason than the confidence.

I tend to agree with you.
