It finally happened. The Rams dumped Torry Holt. Let the speculation begin! He’s 32 and has only missed two games in 10 seasons. Tell me what you think about “Big Game.”
Is Nick Foles the Eagles Quarterback of the Future?

I have already publicly stated I would love Holt. I think he has a ton left. His numbers dipped due to a horrible team with a bad O-Line. Not as sexy of a pick up as Boldin would be, but that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t be a great addition. If you told me the Birds had no chance of getting Boldin I am all for Holt. I keep it simple: Would he be an upgrade? My answer is yes he would. I love Desean Jackson, but if we are talking about next year I would like to see Jackson, Holt, Curtis, Avant more than I would Jackson, Curtis, Avant, Baskett.
I’d take Holt for one reason. He’d be cheaper than Boldin. Wouldn’t have to give up any high picks. He is definitely a better option than Marvin Harrison. The Birds have said they want a “difference maker” which is why they passed on Houshmandzadeh. Does Holt still have that ability at 32? I would say the FO will conclude he doesn’t. They’re dumping old guys left and right. It wouldn’t make much sense to add one now.
Exactly Scott, there is no way the FO picks up Holt. I wouldn’t want him anyway to be honest. It seems to me that most fans feel that the Eagles NEED a reciever more than anything and once they hear Torry Holt, they automatically think of his glory years. He’s not that guy anymore.
I agree Jim about the fans once again beating the wide receiver drum. I think one will be added, but it will be in the draft and it should be. The only guy I would want is Boldin, but only at the right price. I’ll still be surprised if the Cards deal him.
