Jaguars sign Torry Holt
Posted Apr. 20 at 10:03 AM
The Jaguars have signed Torry Holt, according to a report by The Florida Times-Union.
Holt agreed to a three-year deal. Whether this adequately shores up the team's receiving corps remains to be seen. Holt's play declined last year, and the Rams released him. So big name doesn't necessarily equal big production.
The Jaguars have the 8th pick in the draft and could still select a receiver in the first round -- either at that spot, or after trading down.
Earlier in the offseason, the Jaguars jettisoned most of their key receivers from last year -- Jerry Porter, Matt Jones and Reggie Williams. They still have Dennis Northcutt, but he's more of a slot receiver.

I read three years, up to $20 million w/$4 mil. guaranteed. Any updates? Thanks!

That $20 million number looks nice, but only $4 million is guaranteed. If I had to guess, I'd say Holt probably will play the one year there for $4 million, and that will be it. The article (and I updated the link) says it's a three-year deal for $13 million, with another $7 million possible in incentives but doesn't say what those incentives are. And keep in mind this is the same deal that gave Jerry Porter the monster deal last season.
