Titans could lose out to Jaguars for Holt

Saturday, April 18, 2009 at 4:40pm

The Tennessee Titans last best chance to add another veteran wide receiver could soon be gone.

ESPN.com, citing unnamed sources, indicated that Torry Holt was closing in on a deal with the Titans AFC South rival Jacksonville, though no contract had been completed, according to the report.
 

Holt's agent Kennard McGuire said in a text message to The City Paper that "no decision has been made," regarding any deal with Jacksonville.

Both the Jaguars and Titans had hosted Holt on visits recently. The Jaguars can likely promise Holt a starting position, given that they released Matt Jones after an off-the-field incident and lost Reggie Williams to free agency. Williams remains unsigned but his own off-field issues have caused the Jaguars to abstain from re-signing him.
 

Holt caught 64 passes last seasons for the 2-14 St. Louis Rams and was released after the rebuilding Rams refused to pay a $1.25 million roster bonus in mid-March.
 

The Titans have Justin Gage and recently signed Nate Washington as starters but are completely unproven beyond those two.

We've had terrible luck with aging receivers. Best to draft the kids.

I see no reason to be concerned about Torry Holt or any other receiver. The Titans are the Titans and have been for 48 or 49 years. What you see is what you get.

Sounds to me like Holt and his agent might be behind the unknown source, just trying to set off a bidding war between the Titans and Jags.

Torry Holt go for the money because the titans will not pay players who don't fix the Let's say (Group Membership).

If Holt wants another ring, he will sign with the Titans.
If he wants his @$$ kicked twice a year, then he will go to Jacksonville.

Oh well, i knew this was going to happen. Cheap arse Bud is not bringing any vets to help out on the WR position. We will probably end up with a washed out Drew Bennet. :( Bud you cheap arse!!!

I do not know why everybody is surprised that we do not go after Holt. Has anyone been paying attention... That is not Titan football... why did Frank lead the team in receptions for so many seasons. Ball control conservative clock consuming nail-biter field goal at the end to win/lose
