Default Pats Sign Holt to 1 Year Deal

Quote:
Patriots boost receiving corps, sign Holt to one-year, $1.7M deal

Torry Holt said last month that he wanted to play on a team with an elite quarterback

That wish has been granted.

The veteran wide receiver will catch passes from quarterback Tom Brady, a two-time Super Bowl MVP, after signing a one-year, $1.7 million contract with the New England Patriots, a league source told NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora on Tuesday.

The Patriots needed depth at receiver because of questions still surrounding the health of Wes Welker, who suffered a knee injury during the 2009 regular-season finale. Holt provides a veteran presence opposite Randy Moss for New England, which also recently brought back David Patten.

Holt, 33, spent last season with the Jacksonville Jaguars, who released him in February after he posted career lows in receptions (51) and yards (722) and failed to score a touchdown for the first time in 11 NFL seasons. However, Holt's 63-yard reception during a Dec. 13 game against the Miami Dolphins was the Jaguars' longest of 2009.

Holt, a seven-time Pro Bowl selection in 10 years with the St. Louis Rams, is 10th in NFL history in career receiving yards (13,382), 11th in receptions (920) and tied for 27th in touchdown catches (74). He's fourth on the league's career list with 77.4 receiving yards per game.
