The Rams released WR Torry Holt this afternoon.
The move comes as no surprise. The team's been trying to trade him for weeks, and with a roster bonus due on March 17, teams chose to just wait it out. It frees up $8 million in cap space, and combined with Orlando Pace's release, gives the Rams $14 million, some of which is already dedicated to free agents Butler and Brown and re-signing Ron Bartell.
The team had to get younger, and Holt wanted to wind down his career with a contender.
Holt leaves the Rams with 869 receptions, 12,660 receiving yards and 74 TDs. Only Isaac Bruce has more receptions, receiving yards and TDs with the Rams franchise.
Business or not, we'll miss seeing Holt in the blue and gold.
