Holt to retire as a Ram

The SportsXchange

The St. Louis Rams announced on Monday that wide receiver Torry Holt will sign a one-day contract with the team, so that he can officially retire from the NFL in the city where he played for a decade.

"We are proud to announce that legendary WR Torry Holy will be signing a one day contract and retiring a Ram in the near future," the team posted on its web site. "He always rose to the occasion."

Holt last played in the 2009 season for Jacksonville, catching 51 passes for 722 yards in his only NFL season without a touchdown. Before that, he played 10 seasons for the Rams, helping St. Louis to a Super Bowl victory in his rookie season, and went on to make seven Pro Bowl appearances. He was named First Team All-Pro in 2003 by the Sporting News, the Associated Press and the Pro Football Writers after catching 117 passes for 1696 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Holt signed with the Patriots in 2010, but was released on an injury settlement before the start of the season. In 173 career games, he caught 920 passes for 13,382 yards and 74 touchdowns.
