The six-foot-one, 210-pound native of Michigan signed with the Miami Dolphins in 2020 and played three games recording three total tackles. Holley was waived by Miami as part of final cuts in August of this year. The Kent State University product also spent time with the Minnesota Vikings in 2017 and the Nebraska Danger of the Indoor Football League and Los Angeles Rams in 2018.
