Holton was released by the Giants on Saturday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports. Holton signed with the team Wednesday and didn't prove himself enough in his short time with the team to secure a roster spot. The 29-year-old was active for all 16 games with the Steelers last season but caught just three passes for 21 yards on 15 targets.
Holton agreed to a contract with the Giants on Wednesday. Holton was let go by the Steelers this offseason but will get another opportunity to make a 53-man roster. The 28-year-old produced just three catches for 21 yards and returned three kickoffs through 16 games in 2019, so he'll be looking for a depth role.
The Steelers cut Holton on Monday, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports. Holton produced just three catches for 21 yards and returned three kickoffs for 55 yards through 16 games in 2019. The 28-year-old will look to catch on elsewhere in a special teams and depth receiver role.
Holton played six snaps on offense and wasn't targeted in Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Ravens. Holton played in all 16 games in 2019, with the majority of his snaps coming on special teams over the final three contests. The 28-year-old wraps up the campaign with three receptions (on 15 targets) for 21 yards.
Holton caught both his targets but lost one yard in Pittsburgh's 17-10 loss to Buffalo on Sunday night. The good news is that Holton brought in both balls sent his way after having caught just one of 13 targets all season. Unfortunately, the receptions accounted for a one-yard loss. For fantasy owners with something to play for in Week 16, anyone else would be a better option.
