    Holts talks heating up.

    Holt roundup
    by VanRam SI on Mar 8, 2009 12:15 PM CDT in 2009 Off-Season 0 comments

    With the T.O. saga mercifully at a lull since his signing with the Bills, Torry Holt is the man, or at least the WR, of the hour.

    Friday, it was the Bears (or at least the fans and the media) with the interest in Holt. Now, the Ravens may be a potential destination. Add the Falcons to the list, too. Of course, there's always the Cowboys who could use a solid #2 to replace T.O. The Eagles could possibly have some interest, and there's always the Vikings who could make Holt sort of a consolation prize after losing out on Houshmanzadeh.

    The market's starting to take shape, but will it wait for the Rams to trade him, especially if teams can gamble that the Rams will cut him ahead of his 3/17 roster bonus? The benefit of making a trade for Holt now would be avoiding a bidding war and getting him at a fixed cost of a little less than $7 million per season, more likely though a team would hammer out a deal to take him through the end of his career. Stay tuned.

    And if a team misses out on Holt, well, there's always Drew Bennett.

    He's a Rams fan who eats a steady diet of government surplus cheese as he lives IN A VAN DOWN BY THE RIVER!

    vanram is a reg on another board who writes a pretty good blog for turf show times.

    I think he's off on TH's salary,though; isn't it 10.2, 2.2 cap hit if he leaves?

    It looks like Holt will soon not be a Ram. Any updates on Pace?

    Re: Holts talks heating up.

    Seems the Jets and Titans are looking like the most likely destinations for Holt, although Philly, Baltimore and Atlanta, even Dallas have been rumoured!!!

    I've posted links to all the different news items saying such on my YankeeDoodleBrit blog on Tumblr...

    As long as he doesn't become a Seahawk, Card, or Niner I could really care less where he goes. I just hope he has a productive career and makes the hall of fame. Don't worry Torry! We will retire your number, right next to Ike's.

    Devaney, if you care about this team... fire the offensive coordinator!!!!

    Re: Holts talks heating up.

    If we trade Torry to another team, we should respect what he has done for the Rams and St Louis by trading him to a team with a good starting QB. I would hate to see him go to the Jets, Vikings or Bears and would hope to see him in either a Falcons, Eagles or Cowboys uniform (I consider the Titans and Ravens QBs average).

    Re: Holts talks heating up.

    If a team trades for Holt, are they not locked into his contract?
    If the Rams dump him, do they not negotiate a new / smaller contract?

    Why would teams trade for him if they think they can get a cheaper version during the bidding war?

    Well you said it at the tail end. The bidding war. If it turns into a bidding war and Holt is the one piece 3 teams need that could get sticky.
