The Titans were reportedly on the verge of trading for Torry Holt on Thursday before the trade fell apart. According to the National Football Post's Michael Lombardi, the deal fell through after Holt refused to restructure his contract. Appearing Friday on NFL Network, Lombardi said he suspects the Titans are still the front-runners to land Holt since they were the only team interested in trading for him.

Is it just me or is Lombardi's logic backwards? This report tells me that if Holt wanted to play for the Titans at the contract they were proposing, he would have restructured. My thoughts are that either the Titans offer was below Holt's envisioned value of himself is or he has no interest in playing in Tennessee.
Now that you mention it, yeah...I guess it is a little contradictory. Although, I can see his point. But, ultimately it's gonna be whoever shows him the most money now. Which doesn't look like it'll be my Dolphins. That's just not their MO. Nor the Vikes. At least, not according to this little diddy:

According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the Vikings are not believed to have interest in Torry Holt. The Vikes chased T.J. Houshmandzadeh and are looking for an upgrade opposite Bernard Berrian. Holt, however, has long played in a different system and may not be a good fit for Brad Childress' West Coast offense.

I heard on NFLN that SF is rumored to be a possible landing spot, thereby reuniting him with The Reverend Ike.
