I have been reding alot of good things about Mike Holmes .
He had a very good career at Syracuse as their Cornerback and kick returner . He had an increadible amount of tackles and was said to be maybe to slow for corner in the NFL and not big enough to be a safety . This all sounds like he could be a canddate fro SAM linebacker .
He has been on 3 NFL rosters over the passed two years .
Ranks fifth on SU’s career record list for tackles by a defensive back (271 tackles) A three-year starter at cornerback and free safety, he had six career interceptions. He also recorded a 23.5-yard average as a kickoff returner with one touchdown and returned 30 punts for a 10.4-yard average.
Syracuse’s Mike Holmes lacks the quickness of a pro cornerback and the size of a pro safety, but he has good instincts …http://www.popscreen.com/v/6IBw2/Michael-Holmes-Profile
. He played against Colgate in the BIG EAST so that explains why Austin knows him
