Torry Holt could turn his free agency into an AFC South bidding war.

Holt visited the Jaguars on Thursday, but the division rival Titans should also have interest in the veteran wide receiver, The Nashville City Paper says:

    The Titans still should have Holt on their radar, even if no visit has yet been scheduled for them. What remains to be seen is how much competition they will have for Holt and what his asking price will be. Chances are, the former will determine the latter.
    A couple of supposed aces in the hole that might work in the Titans favor is that they have some veterans, who supposedly know Holt pretty well with their state of North Carolina connections. Apparently, both David Thornton and Alge Crumpler, who played at North Carolina, know Holt, who played at N.C. State. All three are from the state.

If the Jaguars and Titans are both interested in Holt, that’s good news for him. The two teams hate each other (Titans coach Jeff Fisher once called Jacksonville’s stadium his team’s second home because of its run of success there), and both need a featured wide receiver, so Holt likely stands to make some good money off the situation.
