Holliday trying to become Texans' return man

HOUSTON - Trindon Holliday thought about trying out for the U.S. Olympic track team this summer. He quickly dismissed that notion because the London Games overlapped with the start of Houston Texans training camp and Holliday would much rather make this team.

The former LSU track star ran back a kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown in the preseason opener against Carolina on Saturday, and he wants to be Houston's go-to guy on punt and kickoff returns.

A sixth-round draft pick in 2010, Holliday sat out his first season with a left thumb injury, missed the entire 2011 preseason with a hamstring injury and spent most of the last regular season on the practice squad.

Holliday wants to show coaches what he can do as a receiver, as well. He still hasn't played in a regular-season game.
