Torry Holt is entering the final year of a five-year, $10 million deal he signed as a first-rounder out of North Carolina State in 1999. But 'Big Game' is dissatisfied with his current deal, so much so that his agent, Greg Williams, said his client would not report to the Rams three-day minicamp that begins Friday unless he received a contract extension.

That's news the Rams would rather not hear. Coach Mike Martz has a love affair with passing the ball, but after losing Ricky Proehl and Ernie Conwell, the Rams couldn't afford Holt to miss significant camp time that could slow him down in the regular season.
