Torry Holt's season -- and perhaps his career -- is over.
"It's a great disappointment for Torry," Holt's agent, Kennard McGuire, told ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss. "He saw this as a terrific chance to play with another great quarterback and being coached by one of the all-time greats."
Holt is a seven-time Pro Bowler with 920 receptions (11th all-time) for 13,382 yards (10th all-time) and 74 touchdowns (tied for 27th all-time).
With a spot open on the roster, the Patriots brought back recently released receiver Buddy Farnham.
