     Torry Holt recently made it known publicly that he wants to be a chicago bear in this upcoming year. Holt had his most success being selected for the pro bowl seven times under Mike Martz for the Rams. He caught 51 passes for 722 yards last year, and over his career he has caught 920 passes for 13,382 yards and 74 touchdowns, with 8 seasons in a row with over 1,000 yards receiving . The 33 year old knows Martz's system well, but can he still be a number one receiver? He would be a good veteran for the bears young receiving core to learn from, and he would most likely benefit from a reunion with former coach Mike Martz.

    With Devin Hester most likely having a reduced role this year as more of a slot receiver, and special teams. The Bears don't have a number one wide out, is Torry Holt still a number one receiver, or more of a number two? Will Devon Aromashadou become a number one receiver? Torry Holt has had a great career so far, and is certainly an intriguing option for the bears to consider. I wouldn't make any sudden moves just yet, until all the free agent options are explored. If the Bears do sign Holt though I think he would definitely have a positive impact.
