Report: Raiders sign Trindon Holliday, who may struggle to make 53-man roster

The Oakland Raiders made a curious addition Wednesday by signing former Denver return man Trindon Holliday.

Holliday, who returned two kickoffs and two punts for touchdowns with the Broncos in 2012-13, is trying to revive his career with the Raiders, according to NFL Media. Holliday, 29, bounced between the New York Giants, Tampa Bay and San Francisco in 2014. He was cut by the 49ers earlier this year.

Holliday's issue is he is just 5-foot-5 and is not a fit at receiver. I found the news of the Raiders signing Holliday to be a bit unusual. Oakland drafted Florida's Andre Debose in the seventh round. He has looked good in the organized team activities. But the Raiders have a crowded group of receivers and Debose is much more of a returner than a receiver. Thus, he could have a difficult time making the 53-man roster.

So, unless something dramatic happens, I see Holliday falling behind Debose in a race that already may be an uphill battle.
