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.
