A consistent DeVonte Holloman shows up
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas -- DeVonte Holloman has flashed with two of the Dallas Cowboys’ best plays of the preseason: a pick-six against Miami in the Hall of Fame Game and a diving interception at Arizona on Aug. 17.
He had a sack Saturday against Cincinnati, but it wasn’t the flash play that caught Jason Garrett’s eye. It was the sixth-round pick’s ability to make the everyday play. He was credited with four tackles, including a stop on three straight fourth-quarter plays.
“He seemed to be around the ball on a consistent basis, making tackles even though he didn’t return anything for a touchdown,” Garrett said. “He just seems to be playing better and better.”
Holloman will get another chance to shine in Thursday’s preseason finale against Houston, but those could prove his final meaningful defensive snaps in a long time because he will not be unseating Bruce Carter anytime soon.
But it is good to know the Cowboys have some depth.
