Holt Taking Visits One At A Time

When word broke that veteran receiver Torry Holt would be visiting the Jaguars, fans of the team envisioned him wearing black and/or teal and/or white and/or whatever the team’s colors are.
But it might not happen that quickly.
According to Terry McCormick of the Nashville City Paper, Holt plans to make the rounds before making a decision.
“Torry is in contact with all the teams that have interest,” agent Kennard McGuire told the City Paper.  “He is taking one visit at a time.”
The other interested teams aren’t known.  There’s a chance that McGuire is bluffing, in the hopes that the Jags will try to lock Holt up before he visits any other teams.
The Titans reportedly tried to trade for Holt before the Rams cut him earlier this month, but no visit has been scheduled for Nashville to date.

    he’d fit in well in San Francisco. Detroit might be a good fit too, playing opposite the phenom Calvin Johnson. He could also mentor him in life and football. But he’d have no one to get him the ball.
    Jaguars are garbage(sorry) and if he goes there he’s just announcing to the world that he wants one last payday on a team with no pressure on himself. I hope he’s more of a man than that.

    Vikings make too much sense to actually happen…

    And San Fran and Detroit aren’t garbage, Eddie? Let’s get serious, here, Torry Holt is destined for Tennessee. He would be a perfect fit, and the Titans would be much improved, even when factoring in the loss of Haynesworth. Two new WR’s to add to the young talent would make the Titans more potent on offense. They might even have a chance when they visit Pittsburgh to open the season.

    Tennessee already has a contract offered for Torry , which is why he hasnt scheduled a visit , cause there is nothing to gain from it . Reinfeldt knows what he is capable of , the only factor right now is whether or not Torry wants around 6-8 mil to play for the Greek Gods and give him the best shot at another ring , or take 9-11 mil and play for the likes of Chiefs,Jags,Jets,or Raiders … What is the problem is he already has a ring so his desire for a championship might not be what you would hope for …

    Is he making the rounds with his brother as a package deal???

  6. ChrisJNelson says: Mar 27, 2009 10:59 PM

    Is there any other way to take visits? Can he physically be in both Jacksonville and, say, Minneapolis, simultaneously?

    I love when fans and pundits and occasionally some internet hack has the idea any given veteran player will assume the mentor position for some raw-talent kid. As if all it takes is a birth date.
    I can’t believe the Rams would cut Holt if the Titans made a play for him.
    Jags get Boldin. Cards get rounds 1 and 4 and Clint Ingram or Reggie Hayward. We all know they need D.

    Drycleaner is a joke!!! Homey is soft. he sit’s on his little computer hatin the Jag’s. “Edie” if you hate the jag’s so much, why are you alway’s commenting on them. Go back to laundry woman.

    I can’t see any reason that the Rams would balk at ANY trade offer, if they were just going to cut him. Sure, if they didn’t want to do business with a division rival or something, but that’s not the case with Tennessee. Even if the Titans only offered a 7th rounder and a bag of SunChips, that’s still more than the Rams ended up with by cutting him.
    So, what happened? Did the Titans realize he was going to be cut no matter what, and decide they’d rather compete for his services in the free agency market? It seems like it would make more sense to send them a late-rounder, avoid having compete with other teams, and probably save yourself a couple million a year.
    Still, it would be typical Titans. Burn a 3rd rounder on Paul Williams, but not willing to send a 5th to St. Louis for Torry Holt.

    He can join the Pats to give Galloway some compettition… imagine that lineup ? Moss, Welker, Holt, Galloway .. Pipe Dream

  13. mattat39 says: Mar 28, 2009 7:53 AM

    Man he would look good in burgundy and gold, plus he could help the two red shirt wide receivers we drafted last year, and we all know Danny has deep pockets!!!! Also Colt Brennan is gonna need a tall target to throw too after he takes over the starting QB role this season…Hail!!!

    Thank you NYCjag. They ran that story one time about how darrell green was helping a rookie and now every guy in the media thinks you need to give up a roster spot for a crusty veteran to be a “leader” in the lockerroom, or even worse, given an assistant coaching position. I hate to break it to anyone, but most of the best coaches never played, or played very little. Somthing about being a primadonna not really making for good teachers I guess

    News for the drycleaner …..Jaguars are only 1 year removed from a playoff appearance and beating the Steelers on the road in the playoffs ….
    A healthy O-line, big doses of MJD (running and catching) and a combo of Holt and Macklin/Crabtree and the Jags offense will at least be in the top 12 in 20009.

    The Jags had him in town for two days and didn’t lock him up. Obviously, Holt felt Jax could be a team that has the right scenario for his situation. He would quickly be the #1. To paraphrase Denny Green, he was who they thought he was and they let him off the hook. They’ll be fortunate if he swims their way again.

    Who are we kidding here? San Fran is like amazing! So are the Lions … they’re like AMAZING and would be a PERFECT FIT for Holt.
    That guy fits in Jacksonville better than anywhere. And for those of you talking trash just wait until your number is called and you get Mojo’s spikes imprinted all over your defense.

    Are most of Jag fans really grasping to the thought of a playoff team in 09 ? I lived in Treasure Island for the longest and I have to say I was a kitty fan , but honestly the Jags are not going to compete this year or next . They are going into a transitional year , next year will be a new quarterback , and then maybe…maybe…maybe if they draft the right guy ( highly plausible ) then they will be back to the holyland … Holt is trying to figure out if he wants to go back to a St.Louis situation with Jags,Chiefs,Jets,or Raiders and get that big pay day or play for the Lombardi with Tennessee,Pittsburgh,or “da Chargers!” which I hope not on the latter …

    ron32082, you may be right. We’ll find out in 18,000 years.
