Let's call it The Over The Hill Gang 2.0. The Redskins have been stuffing their roster with aging veterans from quarterback to running back to defensive line and the DL just got another injection of arthritis by signing 12-year veteran Vonnie Holliday, who spent last season with the Denver Broncos and has played end or tackle for 5 NFL teams in his career.
Holliday was a first round pick of the Green Bay Packers in 1993 and has been a starter every year in the league until last season, when he started only 3 times, but played in all 16 Denver games. He had 5 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and 33 tackles or assists for the Broncos. Due to his relatively small size for a defensive lineman [285 pounds], Holliday is pretty much limited to being a rotation player at end in Washington's 3-4 defense. Holliday has 60 sacks during his 12-year career so 5 last year means he's still pretty much the pass-rusher he has always been, which is good news for the Redskins.
Holliday joins these guys on the defensive line for the Redskins:
|93 --||Daniels, Phillip||DE||6-5||305||Georgia||03-04-1973|
|91||Jackson, Rob||DE||6-4||269||Kansas State||11-03-1985|
|75||Scott, Darrion||DE||6-3||289||Ohio State||10-25-1981|
|62||Holmes, Antoine||DL||6-2||289||North Carolina State||03-25-1986|
|79||Peterson, Greg||DL||6-5||315||North Carolina Central||01-21-1984|
|76||-- Bryant, Anthony||NT||6-3||335||Alabama||11-16-1981|
|72||-- Green, Howard||NT||6-2||320||LSU||01-12-1979|
|96||-- Kemoeatu, Maake||NT||6-5||345||Utah||01-10-1979|
It looks like the Redskins are concerned about this position and are throwing as much as they can at it without spending a ton of dough. [Having already spent two tons of dough on one ton of a player who hasn't been willing to show up for offseason workouts yet.]
