It has been widely speculated for a while now that the St. Louis Rams will probably release veteran wide receiver (and in all likelihood future hall of famer) Torry Holt, before he’s due a $1.25 million roster bonus next Tuesday. Former first overall pick Orlando Pace was released today, to nobody’s great surprise, and the question is whether or not the aforementioned Holt is next. While it’s all but certain Holt won’t be a Ram next year, St. Louis might hold out to the very end to see what, if any, value they could get in return in a trade.
There seems to be a whole lot of interest in Holt around the league, and if the same were the case with Pace, he’d probably still technically be a Ram. ESPN.com has (in their “insider” section) reported no less than ten possible suitors for Holt, 70% of them being teams with winning records last year. In that same report, John Clayton states that the Titans and the New York Jets are the favorites to land Holt.
If you’d like to see Torry Holt in a Titans uniform, and think that’s pretty good news, this might be even better…
According to the New York Daily News, the Jets have absolutely no interest in Holt at all. While that information might make Tennessee look like the front runner for Holt, at least for the time being, Tennessee might not leave it at that.
