    Holt writes letter to Rams fans

    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    04/22/2009

    After 10 seasons in St. Louis, wide receiver Torry Holt is now a Jacksonville Jaguar. He e-mailed a letter to Jim Thomas of the Post-Dispatch, asking that it be shared with Rams fans:


    To the St. Louis Rams fans:


    As I begin the next chapter of my career, I want to thank you for your continuous support during my 10 years in St. Louis. When I was drafted by the Rams in 1999, you showed me and my family so much love and encouragement, and we greatly appreciate it still to this day.

    Your excitement and enthusiasm for the Rams made the Edward Jones Dome one of the toughest venues in the NFL for opposing teams. You were instrumental in our runs to Super Bowl XXXIV and Super Bowl XXXVI.

    Thank you to the Rams organization for giving me the opportunity to be a wide receiver in the National Football League. From when I first began playing football at age seven, I dreamed of playing in the NFL and the Rams helped make that dream a reality. Thank you to everyone in the organization, past and present, for their kindness and support throughout my time as a Ram.

    I would also like to thank all of my coaches at the Rams who helped shape and develop me into the player that I am today.

    Finally, I would like to thank all of my teammates from when I began with the Rams to now, for their loyalty and support. Without them, I would have not been able to achieve some of the successes that I have reached during my career.

    I will miss the fans, coaches and teammates, but I will always have two important memories being part of a Super Bowl Championship team and representing the remarkable city of St. Louis to the world!

    Thank you again,

    Torry "Big Game" Holt

    Re: Holt writes letter to Rams fans

    yeah i really like that he did this, he's been everything you want in a player.

    i still feel like he was always underrated, idiots like ocho cinco and t.o get attention by being controversial and torry just went about his business like a professional and never seemed to be in the conversation of elite players.

    thanks torry for the memories and the honor you brought to the organization and the city.

    i will miss him dearly, not only on the field but on Madden football also!

    Well can't say I expected anything less from holt. We are definitely going to miss him on the field and off. He is an extremely talented player and a leader. It turned out that our team was simply a bad situation for an aging vet. who IMO still has so much to offer. Hopefully he has an amazing season next year. Which I am sure he will.

    Good Luck Torry! You will be missed.

    I don't feel bad about the decision. It was time. However, I will miss Torry and what he did for the Rams. As stated a million times in this thread and beyond. Classy guy.

    I have and always will have much respect for Torry Holt, and I am glad that he was a part of this team for the last decade. I was sad to see him go, but I totally understand the business of the game and I agree that the move was necessary part of the rebuilding of our team. I am still proud to have named my dog Holt...

    What you see is what you get, but what you see depends on where you stand.

    I love this guy.

    Good luck to you Torry, I'll ALWAYS be rooting for you.

    You see things like this, and you can't blame Devaney & Co. for striving to find players like Torry. Great players, great attitude and all class. I'm honored to say he was a part of the Rams, and in my mind he always will be. I hope we'll retire his jersey one day, along with Deacon!

    Thanks again Torry, you really are the man.


    Always and Forever a fan of the St. Louis Rams
