Holyfield boosts Cincinnati’s depth at the position after injuries to the group.
Holyfield, 23, signed with the Panthers as an undrafted free agent out of Georgi in 2019a. He signed a three-year, $1.755 million contract in 2019 but was cut loose as a rookie and re-signed to Carolina’s practice squad.
The Eagles signed Holyfield off the Panthers’ practice squad in December but he was cut loose coming out of the preseason in 2020 and re-signed to their taxi squad. He returned on a futures deal for 2021 but was once again waived coming out of the preseason.
During his three-year career at Georgia, Holyfield rushed 215 times for 1340 yards and nine touchdowns in 27 games. He also caught seven passes for 63 yards.
