As many of you may have already heard, the St. Louis Rams released their legendary receiver Torry Holt on Friday. Certainly we can expect the speculation to begin about which team might become his new home.
I'll be the first to say that it might be a bit of a disappointment that his new home will not be Indianapolis.
Torry Holt has long been one of the very best receivers in the game. You just might not know it, because he was not cut from the same mold of players like Terrell Owens, Randy Moss, or Chad Ocho Cinco.
Instead, Torry Holt has been more of a quiet producer and if productivity were his job, then I would say that he should be entitled to a raise more so than a cut.
Yet professional football is a buisiness, and I'm sure the Rams felt it was about time to cut ties with their long-time playmaker.
When I heard news of his release, daydreams of seeing Torry Holt run around catching touchdown passes from Peyton Manning began to dance around in my head.
Then, I had to wake up and remember that my team is the Colts, and not the Patriots.
Certainly not meant as a knock on the Patriots but we all know they pick up every Free Agent worth a nickel. They would have done more this season had they not been so strapped for cap space.
Yes, cap space, that wonderful little thing that's also become something of an issue in Indianapolis. I have nothing against the salary cap, I'm actually all for it. My issue is that my team does not have any of it left.
How selfish that I pity myself for something that's not wrong in the first place. I'm actually quite content with our roster and have not yet gone through "Marvin Harrison separation anxiety".
It would just be nice to have another future Hall of Famer to catch passes from that guy who does all those commercials, his name slips my mind at the moment.
I shouldn't be so quick to forget that my team made a major free agent signing this season...
I just must pre-order those No. 63 jerseys before the season begins. I think he'll fit in well in Indianapolis.
I wish Torry Holt nothing but the best of luck, I hope he has a great career so long as he finds a team that isn't on the Colts schedule and has no shot at Super Bowl contention.
Oh well, maybe next year.
