Eight seconds later, Holliday was gone. The NFL's shortest - and quite possibly fastest - player says he has never been caught from behind and it didn't come close to happening last Sunday, either. His 105-yard kickoff return for a touchdown went down as the longest play in Broncos history.
This was, actually, the fourth time the 5-foot-5 Holliday had returned a kick for a score this year. The first three came in the preseason with the Houston Texans, which is why the second-year player made the team.
But Houston struggled in its return game, and on Oct. 10, the Texans cut ties and the Broncos swooped in.
