Eagles could be landing spot for Holt, Pace?

Another day, another Eagles rumor. This one seems pretty far fetched, however.

The St. Louis Rams have two players with hefty contracts: wide receiver Torry Holt and tackle Orlando Pace. Holt has recently switched agents so he is represented by the same agent as Pace. The two veteran players now appear to be linked together as the Rams decide whether to release them, trade them or try to re-structure their contracts. The Rams would save the most money if they could find another team willing to take the two veterans off their hands.

Enter the Eagles, who could use a receiver and a tackle. While both players are aging veterans, Rotoworld.com believes that the Eagles and Rams make perfect trading partners. New Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo has connections with the Birds, but even that probably wouldn't be enough to get a deal done between the two teams. The Eagles aren't in the business of taking hefty contracts off the hands of other teams, especially for players on the downsides of their careers.

While Torry Holt isn't as exciting an option as Anquan Boldin or T.J. Houshmandzadeh (see the poll at the left), the Eagles would be interested in him at the right price. If Holt is willing to take a pay cut, he would be a decent fallback option but he definitely shouldn't be the first option for the Eagles. As far as Pace goes, the Eagles should stay away. He's too old and injury-prone to make an impact in the twilight of his career.
