WR Torry Holt will sign a one-day contract with the Rams so that he can officially retire as a member of the team. The official announcement will be made on Wednesday.

Holt spent the first 10 years of his career with the Rams before spending his final professional season with the Jaguars. He has been out of football since 2009 and currently works as an analyst for the NFL Network.  

As a Ram, Holt caught 869 passes for 12,660 yards and 74 touchdowns. All of those are good for second-best in franchise history, trailing only Isaac Bruce in each category.

“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 said in a statement. “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.”

Holt made seven Pro Bowls in his career and helped the Rams reach a pair of Super Bowls, winning one during his rookie season of 1999.
