JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Veteran receiver Torry Holt has agreed
to a three-year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Monday night's deal lessens the need for the Jaguars to get a
receiver early in this weekend's NFL draft and gives the franchise
its biggest weapon at the position since Jimmy Smith retired in
Jacksonville selected Reggie Williams and Matt Jones in the
first round in consecutive years, but parted ways with the troubled
receivers this offseason. The team also got rid of Jerry Porter.
Holt ranks 11th on the NFL's career list with 869 receptions. He
caught 64 passes for 796 yards and three touchdowns for St. Louis
last season. The Rams released him in March days before he was due
a $1.25 million roster bonus.
