Trindon Holliday needs to work on his first impressions. After the wide receiver fumbled the ball away on a punt return in the first quarter against San Diego Monday Night, John Fox was asked if the newest Bronco was going to lose his job. "It wasn't all his fault," Fox said, and he told Denver Post writer Lindsay Jones that Holliday will get more shots as the return man. Holliday was signed to the Broncos this week after being released by the Houston Texans.
The Broncos went on to win the game 35-24, but the fumble led to a Nick Novak 32-yard field goal to put the Chargers up, 3-0. Holliday, an LSU graduate, played six games for the Texans across the last two seasons, amassing 341 return yards among kickoffs and punts. Holliday also lost a fumble in the Texans' season opener against Jacksonville. Despite the support from Fox, the young special teamer will have to hold on to the ball if he intends to remain on the team.
