Tennessee Titans general manager Mike Reinfeldt confirmed Friday to The City Paper that he has made contact with the agent for free agent wide receiver Torry Holt.
Holt was released earlier this month by the St. Louis Rams, and made his first free agent visit Friday to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Reinfeldt has not yet scheduled a visit with Holt through his agent Kennard McGuire, but maintains an interest in getting a look-see at the 32-year-old veteran.
“We’ve talked to his agent a couple of times, and it’s possible we may have him in to visit,” Reinfeldt said. “We’ve had contact with his agent, but at this time nothing is really definitive, but we have some contact with his agent.”
Holt, a 10-year veteran, had 64 catches for the Rams last season and is 11th all-time in NFL receptions with 869 career receptions.
If and when the Titans bring Holt in for a visit, Reinfeldt said such a meeting could be a mutual fact finding endeavor on both ends.
“I think it’s probably a two-way street. With all he’s done and all he’s accomplished, I think he wants to go to a place where he fits personality-wise, scheme-wise, locker room-wise and all that. It’s a two-way fit and I think it’s important to both sides to have it fit,” Reinfeldt said.
While the Titans’ focus is on the draft now and evaluating college prospects, Reinfeldt said the Titans are not necessarily through in free agency. The team needs depth at receiver, cornerback, quarterback and linebacker.
“There are still two or three positions on the team that we are looking at adding some depth to,” Reinfeldt said. “There’s still some free agents out there that would be of interest to us and could help us.”
