Catching up with NFL Free Agent WRs
Torry Holt is actively pursuing work now that he’s back from his vacation. Last week he visited with Jacksonville Jaguars and he’ll meet with the Tennessee Titans later this week. Both teams heavily favor the run, but Holt would give them a valuable possession receiver. He runs crisp routes and has excellent hands. Holt will turn 33 this summer, which isn’t too old for a Wide Receiver. Jacksonville has a more immediate need following the departure of Matt Jones. Tennessee, however, has a better team and a better group of wides with Justin Gage and Nate Washington in the mix. Holt was cut a few weeks ago by the St. Louis Rams.
Meanwhile Marvin Harrison’s phone remains silent. Considering his legal woes stemming from last year’s shooting incident, that may be a good thing. I guess I figured Marvin had a little in the tank, and that his February release from the Colts was simply based on economic factors. Perhaps that’s what is keeping his phone silent. Harrison may be looking for a payday that exceeds what teams would be willing to bring him in for.
The remaining crop of Free Agent receivers is pretty thin. Reggie Williams, Ronald Curry, Amani Toomer, Brandon Lloyd, Shaun McDonald, Darrell Jackson, and Keary Colbert are the top options. None of whom appear to have fantasy relevance regardless of destination.
