Holden, 27, is a former fifth-round pick by the Cardinals back in 2017 out of Vanderbilt. He spent one season with Arizona but was among their final roster cuts the following year.
Holden played for several teams including the Colts, Saints, Cardinals, Dolphins, Seahawks and 49ers before signing on to the Ravens’ practice squad in 2020. He was on and off of the unit before the Colts signed him to their active roster later in the season.
The Colts released Holden coming out of the preseason last week. He caught on with the Lions practice squad shortly after.
In 2020, Holden appeared in one game for the Ravens and started one game for the Colts.
