The Florida Times-Union is reporting that free-agent receiver Torry Holt is close to signing a deal with the Jaguars. The deal could even come as early as tonight, the Times-Union reports.
Holt had 64 receptions for 796 yards and three touchdowns as St. Louis struggled with issues on its offensive line. The team released Holt in March, days before he was to receive a $1.25 million roster bonus.
The Jaguars have the No. 8 overall selection in the draft, and could now go a number of different ways if Holt signs. NFL.com experts Charles Davis and Steve Wyche have the Jaguars selecting WR Michael Crabtree with that pick. But with Holt in the fold, would the Jaguars continue to target a WR in that spot? Or could they draft a quarterback or move down?
