Torry Holt Officially Retires As A Ram

Wednesday April 4th, 2012

Torry Holt may not have played a single down of professional football since 2009, but the longtime star wide receiver officially announced his retirement today as a member of the St. Louis Rams.

Hold signed a one-day contract with St. Louis, the team for which he played the majority of his career. Despite having not played for the team since the 2008 season, Holt is retiring as a Ram.

"I loved everything about being a Ram, and I feel blessed that I'm able to formally finish my career with the organization that drafted me in 1999," Holt told "The fans and the city of St. Louis have been so good to me. I feel very fortunate that I was able to come to St. Louis and be surrounded by so many outstanding players and coaches. This is where it all started, and it's fitting that this is also where it ends."
