Jaguars axe veterans Holt, Thomas
Posted Feb. 11 at 05:45 AM
It's that time of year when teams start saying goodbye to declining veterans, freeing them up to catch on with other teams and freeing the teams up to start planning their own rosters. The Jaguars have made the first splash, releasing wideout Torry Holt, offensive tackle Tra Thomas, and defensive tackle Rob Meier.
Holt, 33, and Thomas, 35, were signed last year during the free agency period; both disappointed. Meier, 32, spent the year on injured reserve.
Should Thomas (who spent most of his career, and went to several Pro Bowls, with the Eagles) hope to continue playing, he'll probably get a look from some tackle-needy team. Meier could also catch on somewhere.
Holt, of course, is the one with the greatest potential fantasy impact, although he didn't do much with Jacksonville. Holt put up 722 receiving yards, but managed even 70 yards in a game just three times and didn't score all year. Chicago, which just hired former St. Louis head coach Mike Martz as offensive coordinator, will be a rumored landing spot.
