Former Rams WR Torry Holt snubbed from Pro Football Hall of Fame again

Torry Holt put together an outstanding resume during his time in the NFL, but for the seventh straight year, it wasn’t enough to get him to Canton. Holt was unfortunately left out of the Pro Football Hall of Fame class for 2021, which was revealed on Saturday.

Holt was a finalist for the second time this year and has been eligible for the Hall of Fame since 2015, being voted a semifinalist seven times. But as was the case in 2020, he came up just short in what was a loaded class of candidates.

Here’s the full class of players who were elected, led by Peyton Manning, Calvin Johnson and Charles Woodson.

In 11 NFL seasons, Holt caught 920 passes for 13,382 yards and 74 touchdowns. He spent 10 years with the Rams, making the Pro Bowl seven times and being named a first-team All-Pro once while in St. Louis.

He led the NFL in receiving yards twice in 2000 and 2003, but more impressively, he had at least 1,000 yards receiving in each season from 2000-2007.

Holt had a chance to join Isaac Bruce in Canton, who was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame last year. Because the induction ceremony was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic, the 2021 class will be inducted along with last year’s class.
