When looking at all the NFL players that finished their careers without winning a Super Bowl, Torry Holt was fortunate enough to win one right away as a member of “The Greatest Show on Turf” back in 1999 with St. Louis.

At the time, Holt didn’t realize he was about to be part of something special when the Rams emerged as one of the top offenses in the NFL, thanks to Kurt Warner filling in for an injured Trent Green.

During his rookie campaign, Holt caught 52 passes for 788 yards with six touchdowns to help the Rams win the Super Bowl during the 1999 season. However, this would end up being the only title won by the wideout in his NFL career.

Still, this didn’t prevent Holt from having a stellar career with the Rams. He led the league in receiving yards with 1,635 in 2000. It showed the team made the right choice with the wideout in the draft the year prior.

In fact, 2000 was the start of six years in a row in which Holt recorded at least 1,300 receiving yards. This makes fans hopeful that he will one day earn a spot in Canton after coming up short so far heading into the 2019 season. One day, Holt will have a bust in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
