    Should we trade for Torry Holt?

    Torry Holt asks the Rams for his release

    Torry Holt has requested to be released by the Rams.

    The Rams have found no takers while shopping Holt, likely because the rest of the league knows they don't intend to pay his $1.25M roster bonus on March 17. Failing to exercise the bonus would terminate Holt's contract and make him a free agent. The Rams probably aren't going to get anything for him. Mar. 4 - 7:02 pm et

    I say we offer a third round pick for him!

    Lol, why would we trade for him when that blurb clearly states he is 97% likely to be released?

    If we're going to offer a 3rd for a WR, it's not going to be Holt.

    Moss went for a 4th

    Owens for a 2nd

    Welker for a 2nd

    Holt isn't the caliber of any of those guys any more.

    McCareins did grab a second, but I'm going to forget about that right now.

    I would DEF take a look at Holt, only if he'd be our 3rd reciever, and still draft a guy like Bey,Nicks,or Britt.

    I believe Cotchery broke alot of Holt's records @ NC State.

    Why? Stuckey is a competent sure handed receiver...

    Why take him out of the offense when you'll hardly ever see more than a 3 receiver look?

    Between the draft, Cotchery, Stuckey, Keller and Washington, I don't see our WR corp as detrimental to the team as most...

    It's solid but still missing the #1 guy. We lost a #2 guy and people are freaking out.

    Stuckey is a #2... Cotch is a #2... Clowney is a good candidate to line up as the #3 as well as Brad Smith who we've yet to see utilized as a true receiving option...

    We're missing our Andre Johnson, Calvin Johnson, Randy Moss, etc...

    The big, fast, can't miss, sure handed route runner...

    He's in the draft this year... Maclin, DHB, Nicks... Whoever... Go get him, we'll be just fine.

    It's not like we're planning on throwing the pall 40 times a game anyway.

    Henry Ellard is currently our WR coach and for the last 6-8 years he worked in the same position with the Rams. I think Stuckey will be a very good player for us and he has built chemistry with the 3 QB's we have on our roster. Adding a young player like Hicks would be a better move than bringing in Holt who is at the end of his career.

    Enough with the over 30 WR's. We have three young WR's who should
    be given the opportunity to take spots:

    Stuckey
    Clowney
    Henry

    And we are certain to draft a WR with one of our top picks. Everyone is
    always complaining about how we need speed at WR then they want to
    pick up over 30 WR's, makes no sense

    He was injury free when he had his first NFL reception toward the end of the season :D

    He was good to go by week 3 as far as I knew...

    Clowney was fine Mangini just didn't get around to activating him until
    the end of the season. You may be talking about Marcus Henry but
    he was never hurt they just stashed him on the practice squad last
    year. People shouldn't sleep on him he's 6-4 about 215 pounds and
    catches the ball very easily. Because he's so tall when he runs it seems
    like he's not moving very fast but each of his strides is chewing up alot
    of ground. The "problem" he had was his torso is so long he had trouble
    protecting his chest so CB's in camp were tying him up at the line of
    scrimmage. The WR coach (Mazzone) was working with him on this, I
    don't think they played him alot in pre-season because I don't think the
    Jets wanted the rest of the league to see him. If they did someone would
    have picked him off of our practice squad just like Derrick Ward.
