Will the Steelers pursue Torry Holt?

Today the St. Louis Rams released veteran wide receiver Torry Holt, 32, a seven-time pro bowler whose contract was due to count $8 million against the salary cap in 2009. One wonders if he might be a good fit for the Steelers as a #3 wide receiver, provided he's willing to play for a reasonable salary. Keep in mind that Pittsburgh was highly interested in drafting Holt with its first-round draft choice back in 1999, only to have the Rams select him sixth overall, forcing the Steelers to settle for Troy Edwards at #13. And we all know that adding a veteran wide receiver is definitely on the Steelers' offseason to-do list.
