As expected, Holliday comes back

Posted by Darren Urban on June 11, 2012 – 1:26 pm

As became clear last week after the Cards re-signed veteran linebacker Clark Haggans, the Cards brought back another vet today when veteran defensive end Vonnie Holliday returned on a one-year contract. As I’ve mentioned before, Holliday not only provides depth but is great in the locker room and teaching young players and that part of it can’t be overstated.

To make room for Holliday, the Cards cut undrafted rookie defensive end Conrad Obi. The Cards will take their full 90-man roster into minicamp tomorrow, with two practices.

    I read on that floyd got a 4 year deal with a 5th option, what does that 5th year option mean?

    RE: Floyd deal

    It probably means the fifth year is an option for the team.

    A big guy like Vonnie can only clean hot tubs and fold towells for so long then it’s gotta be time to get out of town and get back to football. He can only fix so many things around the spa before, “Hey Honey, I’ve got to go crack some heads, smash some people….” Welcome back Mr. Holliday, you deserved the rest. No go catch a QB!

    I”m soooo stoked at the promise this team is showing. I especially am thankful to have these veterans on board to show our young talent the ropes and keep them focused on the game. GREAT JOB CARDS! WE CAN MAKE THIS HAPPEN:)

    Way to go Cards front office! Most all the Drafted Rookies & Vet’s signed before the first mini-camp, Ryan and Beenie very close to being ready.

    This is the start of something that feels very Good.

    Can’t hardly wait to see how Good they are ALL, going to be this year!

    Good resigning of Holliday. He provides very good depth and leadership like Darren said and God forbid but if Dockett or Campbell goes down for a minute, he can come in and play well for us.

    Holliday and Haggans provides great leadership for the Cards lockerroom. Great move by the front office.
