Trindon Holliday is meeting with the Atlanta Falcons today, per Jason La Canfora.  Holliday is and has been an interesting talent.  Similar to Allen Rossum, we can only hope Holliday never sees a single snap on offense or defense.

Holliday was a track star at LSU.  The 5'5", 170 pound (triple checked, those numbers are absolutely accurate) return specialist has bumped around from the Houston Texans to the Denver Broncos.  He has blazing speed, running a 4.21 40 (4.34 official) and has always been a threat bring a punt to the house.

Problematic are his hands.  The reason he was cut from Houston and not resigned by Denver is he fumbles.  Holliday has 11 fumbles in the past three seasons.  He is a dangerous player, for both his team and the opposing team.

Holliday would be an easy upgrade on punt and kick returns but is still a good bet for multiple fumbles in the upcoming year.  Whether or not Holliday signs with Atlanta it is an indication the Falcons are not happy with their return game.
