Why Jacksonville, Torry?

I glanced over the news of Torry Holt visiting the Jaguars this morning. In terms of where the Rams are going, or even where they've been, it just doesn't matter all that much. And frankly, I'm not particularly interested in where Holt plays next year, unless its for a division rival.

If he's looking for a playoff-ready team, Jacksonville's probably not it (they probably need to fix both of their lines too before being a contender). However, he would be the #1 WR for the Jaguars, depending on what they do in the draft. I suspect that matters to Holt as much as signing with a playoff-ready team, after being written out of the Rams offense by both design and incompetence over the last two years. I don't think he's a #1 WR anymore, and as the main guy in Jacksonville, he'll be in double coverage often.

The Titans make sense as a potential destination for Holt based on their past interest and their status as a playoff contender. However, there are questions as to how Holt would fit into the WR mix with Justin Gage and the recently signed Nate Washington.

Jacksonville would be an interesting landing spot from a Rams perspective because the Rams do play the Jaguars, in Jacksonville, this season. So, like with Isaac Bruce last year, that would result in articles, blog posts, live reports and a bunch of message board lamentations in the week leading up to that game.

These are the tough decision you have to make when you're a free agent WR.
