Default Torry Holt Released

Per ESPN.com:

Quote:
Rebuilding Rams release WR HoltComment Email Print Share By John Clayton

After they failed to gain trade value, the Rams announced Friday they have released wide receiver Torry Holt.


Holt had a $1.25 million roster bonus due March 17, and the Rams didn't plan to keep him at his $8 million salary. As they did earlier this week with left tackle Orlando Pace, the Rams parted ways with Holt.

"The Rams will forever be grateful for the way Torry Holt represented the Rams on the field and in the community," Rams owner Chip Rosenbloom said. "He is an All Pro in every sense of the word. Over the past 10 seasons, Torry has proven himself to be one of the finest wide receivers in league history. This is a difficult decision because Torry has meant so much to the organization. In my mind and for all Rams fans, Torry will always be a Ram and we wish him and his family nothing but the best as they move forward."

The releases of Holt and Pace cleared out $14 million of cap room for the Rams. Holt, a seven-time Pro Bowl selection, ranks 11th on the league's all-time reception list with 869 catches. He started 147 games in 10 seasons.

How would Holt look in the Black 'N Gold?

In 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 . . . . .

I'm kind of shocked at this move but understand it is for salary cap reasons. Someone will grab him up but not with that $8 mil price tag.

Unfortunately, we would never drop those bucks........but wouldn't it be cool to see him, Hines and Santonio in the "Banana Bunch" formation?

He would be a nice adition to the Black and Gold but I think he would want more money then we are willing to give him.

i think it would be great to have a vet like Holt next to Ward with Super Bowl MVP Holmes and up and comer Sweed. i think that is a great WR crew.

I have always been a Holt fan, but like everyone else, I don't think we can afford him.

He'd have to play solely for the love of the game and to win if he came to Pittsburgh...

Sadly, those kinds of guys are few and far between...

It is a nice thought, even if it couldn't happen.

Holt always looked to me like a WR that could find the open spot when the QB is in trouble. Ben has a nak of finding the open man when he's on the run. Seems like a marriage made in heaven.
