Default tony Hollings (remember him?)

Quote:
HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) -Tony Hollings spent the last few months playing football in Europe and putting the disappointment of being released by three NFL teams behind him.

``I was over there in another country with a group of guys where we only had each other because we were away from our families,'' Hollings said Tuesday after practicing with the New York Jets. ``It was fun, just going out there and playing with those guys every Saturday.''

Hollings would like to play on Sundays again, in the NFL. After being released last summer by Chicago and then Indianapolis - teams that later met in the Super Bowl - Hollings spent this spring helping the Hamburg Sea Devils win the NFL Europa championship. A few weeks later, the 25-year-old Hollings got a call from the Jets.

``I'm just trying to lead in any way possible, whether that means special teams or playing on offense,'' the former Georgia Tech star said. ``I'm just trying to get on the field and make something happen.''

He'll get that chance, especially with starter Thomas Jones out a few weeks with a strained calf muscle. Leon Washington will take the snaps with the first-team offense, while Hollings, who played three seasons with the Houston Texans, will compete with undrafted rookie free agents Danny Ware and Alvin Banks for the backup role.

``It's never a good thing when a player goes down, but with Thomas being out, it kind of gives me, Alvin and Danny an opportunity to step up and show the coaching staff that we can fit into this offense,'' Hollings said.

A blast from the past, and one of Casserlys brilliant, expensive ideas that rolled snake-eyes.
