Holiday the fourth and final of team's exclusive rights free agents to sign

Wide receiver Carlyle Holiday signed an exclusive rights contract with the Green Bay Packers on Monday, according to a source with access to NFL Players Association data. Holiday is the last of the team’s four exlusive rights free agents to sign contracts with the Packers this off-season, joining Noah Herron, Tory Humphrey and Colin Cole.

As an exclusive rights free agent, Holiday was unable to negotiate with any other National Football League team. The Packers own his rights and likely made him the minimum qualifying offer of a one-year, $435,000 contract.

The former Notre Dame quarterback and Arizona Cardinals receiver was claimed on waivers by the Packers on Dec. 5. He made his first career catch Dec. 10 against San Francisco, and played mainly on Green Bay’s special teams. But with Greg Jennings out and Donald Driver nursing a sore shoulder Dec. 31 against the Bears, Holiday had a bigger role and made the most of it. He had five catches for 87 yards, a sparkling 17.4-per catch avg.

Holiday is listed near the bottom of the Packers’ depth chart at wide receiver with Chris Francies behind Donald Driver, Greg Jennings, Robert Ferguson, and Ruvell Martin. The Packers also are expected to select a receiver or two in the upcoming NFL draft.
