The Chicago Bears left tackle Orlando Pace reached out to Torry Holt and asked him to join the Bears.

Pace told the Chicago Tribune ""I spoke to Torry. It's funny he was just probably at my house a few days before I even came here. I think he's just out searching. I'm probably recruiting him in Chicago here. And hopefully it works out."

Well Bears fans, it seems like there might be a greater chance than you think of acquiring Holt.

He knows that there will be a high level of comfort for him considering that...

1. He will be playing for a coach who he is already played for.

2. He will already be with his old teammate/ best buddy- Orlando Pace

3. He will play better (Which is what every old veteran player wants to do. Play better in their final years.) because of Jay Cutler, who is a HUGE difference, statistically, than Marc Bulger.

4. He knows that if he joins the Bears, that the Bears will be serious contenders for a Division title.

Lets just keep our fingers crossed that the Bears still keep up their interest in him and maybe give everybody another big surprise—an actual wide receiver to catch a pass from an actual quarterback.
