Texans Not Expected To Keep WR/KR Trindon Holliday In 2011

According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans are not expected to keep wide receiver/kick returner Trindon Holliday on the 2011 roster. It’s players like Holliday who will be most affected by the NFL’s kickoff-rule changes — he has no offensive value. “I don’t see him having the hands to be a receiver,” writes McClain. “I don’t see (the Texans) keeping him to be a kickoff returner, either.” If Holliday is cut before the season, he’ll finish his Texans career with zero games played.

    Just look at the trends of touchbacks as a percentage of kickoffs; it increases just about every year because players (kickers included) get stronger over time. They increased every year until 1994 when the kickoff was pushed back to the 30, and after the 1994 dropoff, they continued an upward trend. No matter what Josh Cribbs or Devin Hester says; there will be more touchbacks. They may might be given the discretion to run out kicks from deep in the endzone, less capable returners will not. It maybe makes the best guys even more valuable.
