I just read a short article saying that the Jag's are going to cut Holt on Monday. We have discussed our need at WR already, but I do not recall anyone mentioning Holt as an option (at the time he was not available). The rest of this post will be discussed assuming Holt will become a free agent. More after the jump.
I would like for the Panthers to sign him and here is why:
1. He is still productive with 51 catches for 722 yards.
2. He has great hands and I see him as a Ricky Proehl type player for us, maybe even better.
3. He is from NC and has stated previously that he would like to play for the Panthers.
I would like to see Moose come back or another free agent WR and battle, and probably win the #2 spot with Jarrett. Then we could have Holt in the slot to help with keep drives going on 3rd downs. Plus we can draft a quick and fast WR to help with punt and kick returns who could eventually replace Holt in the slot. That would give us a receiver core of Smitty #1, Moose (or other free agent) #2, Holt #3, drafted return man #4, and Jarrett or Kenny Moore #5.
So, now you have had a minute to think about it and formulate your opinions, what do you think?
