Wide Receiver Torry Holt is still a member of the St. Louis but his release is believed to imminent as he is due a $1.25 million bonus in the middle of March. ESPN’s John Clayton reports that the Jets and Titans are the most likely suitors, but that two or three under the radar teams will emerge as bidders when Holt is released.
Clayton mentions the Steelers as an under the radar team that might give Holt a look for depth purposes. Holt, 32, had 64 receptions and three touchdowns last season. Mike Tomlin is always intrigued by players that Bill Cowher would never give a look but sources tell me Holt to Pittsburgh is a major long-shot considering the Steelers don‚Äôt want to bring in a receiver that could push Hines Ward for playing time.
The Ravens, Jets, Giants, Titans, Buccaneers are expected to make a play for Holt.
