Trindon Holliday's Teammates Remind Him He Is Diminutive

Trindon Holliday is on the far edge of the bell curve of what makes a viable football player, standing at 5' 5" in thick-soled shoes and weighing around 165 pounds after lunch. Darren Sproles calls him "Shorty," and Darren Sproles is the original NFL micro-back. He's small is what we're trying to drive home, something college broadcast crews delighted in showing by using shots of him standing next to 6' 7", 385 pound lineman Herman Johnson. 

Holliday is now in camp with the Houston Texans. If playful ribbing goes toward making the team, then Holliday has already made the cut. (Photo after jump.)

He's clearly beloved already, though if that is his actual bike all previous statements are revoked, and I congratulate Holliday on being extremely comfortable in his masculinity. (HT: Jordan Godwin.)
