Torry Holt to visit Jaguars

Former Rams’ wideout Torry Holt is done vacationing and is now ready to visit NFL teams, with his first stop coming Thursday in Jacksonville.

To wit, league sources told the Post-Dispatch on Wednesday evening that Holt will be paying a free-agent visit to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday. Jacksonville is in dire need of receiving help.

The team cut Jerry Porter and had no plans to re-sign free agent Reggie Williams. On March 16, the Jaguars released wide receiver Matt Jones following his arrest earlier this month on a probation violation stemming from drug charges last summer. Jones led Jacksonville with 65 catches for 761 yards last season.

Holt has no reason to go to a team that can’t guarantee him a starting job because there are plenty of them out there. The Jags’ current starters are Mike Walker and Dennis Northcutt, so even though Holt has shown signs of slowing down, he would still be an immediate upgrade to that unit. Another team that should pick up the phone and dial Holt’s agent is the Chicago Bears, who currently have Devin Hester and Earl Bennett tabbed as their starting wideouts.
