Rams honor 7-time Pro Bowler Holt

Posted April 4, 2012

— Wide receiver Torry Holt signed a one-day contract so he could retire with the St. Louis Rams, where he was a key part of a Super Bowl champion and the Greatest Show on Turf.

The former NC State wide receiver said he'd like to be remembered as a player who respected the game, gave it his all and made sure he had fun.

Despite his statistics, Holt doesn't expect he'll land in the Hall of Fame anytime soon with several other wide receivers ahead of him. He said Wednesday that a farewell news conference was enough validation.

Holt was a seven-time Pro Bowler with St. Louis from 1999-2008 and was selected to the NFL's All-Decade team for the 2000s, setting a league record with six consecutive seasons of at least 1,300 yards receiving.

The Rams scored 500 or more points three consecutive seasons from 1999-2001 with an offense that featured quarterback Kurt Warner and running back Marshall Faulk as well as wide receivers Issac Bruce and Holt.
