Dolphins' Vonnie Holliday re-signed, set to resume unlikely role

When the Miami Dolphins decided to bring in veteran lineman before the 2005 season, the Dolphins got a big-bodied pass-rush specialist who could line up alongside Jason Taylor. Holliday, who signed a four-year, $20 million contract extension on Wednesday, ended up playing defensive tackle in 2006. And the eight-year veteran thrived in that role despite the fact that he had not played it since his college days. (Real Football 365)
