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 BND.com. “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.”
The 35-year-old played 10 seasons with St. Louis before spending one year with Jacksonville in 2009-10. In total he hauled in 920 passes for 13,382 yards and 74 touchdowns.
