The NFL coach loves “their boys” from past ties, and one is joining Andre Patterson, the former Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator in New York.
She False homesA defender who played for the Vikings in three seasons from 2018 to 2020.
Holmes, a defensive end, will audition for the Giants 53-man roster after a season with the New Orleans Saints this summer. In New Orleans, Holmes played eight games, made one start and in 2021 accounted for 35% of all defensive snaps.
Under new head coach Dennis Allen, the Saints did not have the priority to re-sign this offseason, so the Ohio State Alumni will travel to the NFC East with the Giants.
With the Vikings, Holmes has played 25 games (nine as a starter), collected 43 combined tackles, five quarterback hits, four tackles for loss and one sack. His playing time in Minnesota was extended to the 2020 season when Daniel Hunter missed the entire season and Everson Griffin left for the Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions. Holmes was on the field for a defensive snap of the Vikings during the epidemic season.
But in 2021, Minnesota welcomed the aforementioned Griffin, signed Stephen Weatherly for a few games, drafted Patrick Jones II and Genius Robinson, and chose to feature DJ One One in his Sophomore campaign. With Holmes, Ifadi Odenigbo and Jordan Brailford, the weird guy was out.
Holmes will reunite with Vikings co-defense coordinator Andre Patterson for a few years under Mike Zimmer. Patterson was revered by Vikings enthusiasts, who owned the distinction because a few coaches wanted to be around when Zimmer was scheduled for January.
But Patterson is determined, preferring a defensive-line coaching role with the Giants, who are now led by Brian Double from Bill. Patterson will now develop young pass racers like Kyvan Thebodox and DJ Davidson.
One dismissal of Holmes’ career was against Sam Darnald, who played for the New York team at the time.
