    This is kind of like the contract extension the Pats gave to Moss, except his was for 3 years, 27 million.

    Obviously a much safer signing than Jerry Porter.

    Torry Holt is extremely hardworking and takes cares of his body better than anybody in the offseason. He might not be the dominant form of old but he'll earn his contract on the playing field so long as he stays healthy.

    I think this makes the Jags pick very interesting. Maybe they draft Raji and pair him up with Henderson ala Marcus Stroud, pretty good value for him at #8. The only OT left might be Michael Oher at that spot and I don't know if you pull the trigger on Oher in the top 10.

    I still don't buy the Sanchez hype with Jacksonville, they signed Garrard to a 6 year 60 million extension a year and a half ago.

    They could still go WR as they lost Wilford, Williams, and Jones so there's still a need, even with the Holt signing.

    My guess is Maclin/Crabtree or Raji.

      woooooooooo.

      yeah, I'm not worried about the money at all. Like BF51 said, Porter got 10 million a year.

        If there are little to no signing bonuses then this is a solid deal. Allows the Jags to just cut him if and when his play starts to rapidly decline.

          Sure as heck not better than Terrell Owens.

            Well they also signed Tra Thomas this offseason so they have two short term solutions at LT with Thomas and now at WR with Holt. My bet would be on Raji right now, but I wouldn't rule out Sanchez or Maclin either. I doubt Crabtree and Monroe fall to them at 8 and I'm not even sure if Maclin will make it past Oakland. With the extension they just gave Garrard I doubt they'll take Sanchez. I think their expressed interest in him is more of a smoke screen.

              Does this rule out Maclin at #9 if he's still on the board or is he still very much in the running?

                Maclin at 9 is completely out of the question.

                At 8 there might still be a chance.

                  I hate the Jags, but this is a good move. They should still draft Maclin and let him come in as a #2, so he doesn't have all the added pressure of performing amazingly well from the get-go.

                      Considering the rumblings coming out of Jacksonville that the Jaguars are considering a gradual transition into a 3-4 defense, picking Raji makes a lot of sense now.

                          Looks like I will be getting a Jaguars jersey, it will be weird to see that.... Obviously think this is a great move for the Jags, and they quickly shoot up my list of favorite AFC teams. Gonna be a weird week 6 when we go to Jacksonville and see Holt on the other sidelines, granted we will more than likey be 0-5, and Jacksonville will be much better than that hopefully. I really hope to see them and Holt do well.

                            Probably a good move by the Jags. Dammit.

                              This gives the Jaguars alot of directions they can go in the draft; Raji, Sanchez, Stafford, Crabtree, Monroe, Jason Smith, Curry or Maclin. At least one of them will be available at #8 and the Jags could use any of them. Curry is somebody I haven't heard linked to them yet in mocks, but he would be a great fit and could slide in the draft.

                                I'll go out on a small limb and say he gets 1,000 yards next season. The guy had a nice streak before last season, and last year was more of the Rams team struggles than him having an off year. With the level of skill he has I think he can still do damage. Guys like him can play for a good amount of time into their 30s.
