Denver Broncos return specialist Trindon Holliday, after scoring yet another TD on a return and letting go of the ball on or before the goal line, says that coach told him "next time to just bring him the ball."
Note to Holliday: You can celebrate all you want, AFTER the referee raises his two hands.
Holliday has scored touchdowns on returns in two consecutive games, and he's lucky both of them didn't get taken away. The replays on both TDs apparently weren't conclusive enough, but today, the NFL came out and said that his latest one on Sunday against the Panthers should've been ruled a fumble and a touchback.
At first read, you'd think that the quote about his instructions was a joke, but it's actually an order.
"He's got full instructions from Jeff Rodgers, our special teams coach, to bring the ball all the way back to him," head coach John Fox told the Denver Post. "Bring it to the sideline, hand it to your coach."
"Just cross the goal line and bring (Rodgers) the football to be on the safe side," Holliday said. Let's see if remembers.
