Holliday and Texans Make a Deal

Trindon Holliday's quest to make a home in the NFL took a major step in the right direction on Friday when he agreed to contract terms with the Houston Texans.

Former LSU two-sport star Trindon Holliday’s knack for getting things done quickly evidently translates to his work off the field.

On Friday, the 5-foot-5, 161-pounder, who captured a 2009 NCAA 100-meter dash championship and posted a pair of sub-4.4 times at the NFL combine, became the first draft selection of any team to agree to a contract.

Selected by the Houston Texans with the 28th overall pick in the sixth-round, Holliday is expected to compete for a special teams spot and possibly enter the mix at receiver.

According to Adam Caplan of ScoutNFLNetwork.com, the Texans and Holliday agreed on a four-year, $2.731 million maximum contract. The base deal (signing bonus and minimum base salaries) is worth just shy of $1.9 million.
