Holt began his interview by thanking the Patriots for giving him a chance to continue to play in the NFL. Throughout the offseason, Holt said his agent was in talks with the Patriots to close the deal.

Holt said he was in Foxborough yesterday and had a chance to meet with members of the Patriots briefly, including Tom Brady, running back Kevin Faulk and receiver Julian Edelman.

As Holt enters his 12th season, he said he has to be a complete package to succeed.

"I'm not as fast as I once was when I first came into the National Football League. I had a knee surgery, so I think that slowed me down in a sense, but I still have enough speed, enough sense of urgency, enough game speed to play and to be effective and to continue to make plays," he said.
