The Bears decided not to seriously pursue Torry Holt last offseason. However, that may change now that Mike Martz has been hired as the team's offensive coordinator. Holt and Martz enjoyed much success together in St. Louis and the veteran receiver might be able to help the Bears' young receiving corps learn the nuances of Martz's system.
According to the Florida Times Union, the Jaguars are expected to release Holt and tackle Tra Thomas on Monday.
Martz likes to run more multiple-receiver formations than ex-offensive coordinator Ron Turner did so it's likely the Bears will be looking to add a receiver or two. Holt, 33, may not be the player he was at the height of "The Greatest Show on Turf," but he caught 51 passes for 722 yards for the Jaguars last season, and could give a young group some veteran leadership.
