I'll best remember his time as a Gamecock for the INT's he collected against Clem5on ('09 & '11 games--I believe).



Wish Holloman nothing but success as he starts the next chapter of his professional life.



GO COCKS!!

Bummer hate it for Hollman he got some money but he will have to find a job! http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/dallas-co...onte-holloman/

Probably not too polite to bring up his contract but I think it is interesting to think of life after football for these guys. Praying for him.

Default Re: Devonte Holloman Retiring with Neck Injury

Devonte is a really great guy. Hate this happened to him. I used to work at a bar in 5 points and Devonte was there with his friends one night after they all became nfl players. Some of his friends got a little out of control, which caused a scene with a bunch of broken glass everywhere so we had to ask them all to leave. Devonte told us he felt terrible and that he would be back when we closed to help fix things. He left his tab open but we assumed he probably wouldn't be back. However, 3:00am rolls around and Devonte comes knocking at the door to help clean the entire bar. We were shocked, and naturally told him not to help but he insisted. He personally swept and mopped the entire floor. We cleared his tab but naturally he left all the bartenders a hell of a tip. Anyway, wanted to share this story because we don't hear enough about how our coaches are raising great men as well as excellent football players.

Default Re: Devonte Holloman Retiring with Neck Injury

Dallas has lost two projected starting MLBs from injuries inflicted on themselves by their own team members. Things are looking dim in Dallas. They may need to trade for more help at that position.

When Sean Lee was hurt in a preseason drill the NFL actually sent a few guys over to check out their methods in practice as if suspicion was being cast on the methods they were employing during a period the NFL allows workouts designed more for getting in shape than for season preparation. It seemed like the NFL was questioning what Jason Garret was up to.
I see Garret as on his way out.

On the flip side-it will be nice to see Holloman here on our Gamecock team as a Grad Assistant.

Johnny Football used to do stuff like this too. One time he puked all over an old lady as she was on her way to church. He felt so bad about it that he tried to earn a bunch of money signing mini football helmets to pay her dry cleaning bill. I'm not sure how that worked out.

Seriously though, that was a hell of a thing for Devonte to do. I expect people to act that way, but they rarely do. Nice to know some men still have a sense of pride.

Yeah, I heard there was a swan drowning and JM swam out to save it! Granted, he found out it was a float in a hotel lobby but his heart was in the right place...


That was a classy move by Devonte though.

Unfortunately for him NFL contracts aren't "guaranteed" money, except for the signing bonus.

Does anyone know if Devonte's injury is similar to Sterling's injury that ended his NFL career.

OK, so that is less than I ASSumed, but not a bad take for your first few years out of school. He made enough to buy a decent little house in cash. I'd take that start in life.
