First 2010 draft pick signs

If you had Trindon Holliday in your "Who will sign first?" office pool, you just won the prize. The special teams ace and would-be wide receiver today signed a four-year contract worth $1.886 million with Houston.

The Texans took Holliday in the sixth round, 197th overall. At the scouting combine, Holliday ran 40-yard dash times of 4.27 and 4.32 seconds.

Holliday's signing was first reported by John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. Even if you're not a Texans fan, you should follow McClain on Twitter. He's money. Maybe not Trindon Holliday money, however.

McClain said Holliday will return kicks and be used as a wide receiver. It will be interesting to see if Holliday, who is only 5-foot-5 and 160 pounds, can make it in the NFL.

"We think we have a returner that can change the field for us," coach Gary Kubiak said following the draft. "As a punt and kick returner, we think he could do wonders for our team. I think we also could teach him the (running) back position and certain wideout positions."
