Holt Confirms Desire to Finish Career as a Panther


Rams wide out Torry Holt has already stated that he does not want a contract extension with the Rams, and with that it looks like he would like to go home to wrap up his career, and playing at home means playing with the Panthers. Holt’s brother Terrence Holt recently signed with the Panthers, and Torry was not shy in coming out and saying he’d like to do the same.

“I wanted to send in my resignation to the Rams and see if I could join him,” Torry Holt said last month about his brother playing for Carolina. “I’m excited, but I’m also a little jealous because I’ve always wanted an opportunity to come back home.”

It’s no shame for a player that has shown as much class as Holt to want to go home and finish his career. Sure to Rams fans they are going to take it like he does not want to play for them, but Holt is a player that for sure deserves to play for any team he wants as he concludes a great career, and if that team is the Panthers – so be it.

“The real story is that I have this year and next year and hopefully I can finish those years out,” Holt said. “Then I will see where I am at. I will see where I am at physically and emotionally and financially. Then, if they would like to do something here I will consider it. If not, then I will have the option to go and explore and give my services somewhere else. If that happens, Carolina will definitely be my first choice. There is no question about it. I have 2008 and 2009 left to play and that is what I plan on doing.”

Now we’ll see if the Panthers may feel the same way in two years.
