The Jacksonville Jaguars have released two former Pro Bowl veterans, Torry Holt and Tra Thomas.

Future Hall of Fame wide receiver becomes a free agent after getting the boot from the Jags. He finished the year with 51 receptions for 722 yards. Holt had his greatest upside while playing for the St. Louis Rams. In his 11 years in the league he recorded 920 career receptions for 13,382 yards and 74 touchdowns.

Veteran offensive tackle, Tra Thomas will test the free agent market this offseason.

He played for the Eagles from 1998-2008, starting 165 of 166 games at left offensive tackle. He made three Pro Bowls for the Eagles. His short stint with the Jaguars left him watching the clock and waiting for a phone call.

Looking into the upcoming 11th overall draft pick, Jacksonville would be best off selecting defensive end Derrick Morgan from Georgia Tech. or defensive end moving to outside linebacker Brandon Graham from Michigan.

During the third round they should take care of the quarterback situation. Selecting Jevon Snead from Mississippi. The Jags need someone who can do a little more than dumping the ball off to Maurice Jones Drew.
