The two things I love the most are homecomings and careers coming full circle, so I could be in for quite the treat in the upcoming days. Former Packers defensive end Vonnie Holliday is going to be cut by the Miami Dolphins, and there is already plenty of speculation of him returning to Green Bay.
Holliday was acquired by the Packers in the first round of the 1998 NFL Draft and stayed in Green Bay for five seasons. In his rookie season, he was second in Defensive Rookie of the Year voting behind current Packer Charles Woodson.
He went on to play with the Chiefs
and, most recently, the Miami Dolphins
. He's played under Dom Capers and in the 3-4, both of which are signs that could point to his return to Titletown (the real one, not Valdosta, Georgia).
There's no official word of interest from the Packers, but I wouldn't mind a reuniting of Holliday and Green Bay. The Packers are still actively looking for defensive linemen, having made contact with Igor Olshansky (San Diego
), Marques Douglas (Baltimore
), and Mike Wright (New England)
. The search for new bodies along the line is an aggressive one, especially since the Pack was unable to resign Colin Cole or land Chris Canty last weekend.
