Torry Holt to Jacksonville? UPDATED... YET AGAIN

It looks like the Tennessee Titans may be out of the running for the services of WR Torry Holt. According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, Holt has a tenative agreement in place with the division-rival Jaguars. A lot of Titans fans were hoping that Holt would wind up in Nashville. His veteran presence and leadership would have been as welcome an addition as anything given his bulky knees. Still though, unless the Jags are going to pay him waaaay more than Tennessee was willing to offer (there’s a surprise), why would he decide to go to Jacksonville? That, coupled with the fact that he will (assumedly) be the No. 1 reciever there must have been enough. Nothing has been signed yet, but it sounds like we’ll still be seeing Holt, one way or another…

Update: Chris Mortenson is still reporting a deal with Holt Jacksonville is nearing completion, but Peter King had this little tidbit on today’s edition of MMQB:

I think — no, I know — Tennessee is not out of the Torry Holt derby.

Who knows what to make of that, but if you’d like to see Holt in a Titans jersey, there appears to still be some hope.

New Update: Holt has agreed to a deal with the Jaguars worth up to $20 million. So much for that.

    We aren’t going to the Super Bowl with Kerry Collins or Vince Young so he went where he could get the most catches.

    Holt could turn Jacksonville into a contender again. They have some good young talent and some good draft picks.

    Ok “Titan Fan”, maybe you should change your name to Jag Fan or Jag-off. Why bother being a fan of the Titan’s if you don’t believe that there’s a possibility we could go to the Super Bowl. That’s kind of the point of being a fan. Especially when the team that you claim to root for has every chance to make it. I also noticed you used the word “we” when referring to the Titans. WE(the true Titans believers), WOULD LOVE IT IF YOU COULD STOP PRETENDING TO BE ONE OF US. I know that I’m extrapolating a lot out of one sentence, but get with the program buddy. No one cares if you’re predicting that the Titans aren’t going the Super Bowl 4 months before the season starts. Also, Torry Holt isn’t going to make or break our season.
