In a long expected move that will immediately free up 8.25 million of cap space, the New York Jets have released wide receiver Santonio Holmes. Before 2011, Holmes was signed to a monster 5 year, 45.25 million dollar contract after putting together a clutch 2010 season for the team. Unfortunately, he never came close to living up to the deal, struggling with inconsistency and injuries over the past three seasons. Holmes is likely to enter a harsh market that is loaded with players who have been more productive in recent years. He may be forced into taking a one year “show me” deal.


There were rough patches the past few years but let’s not forget Holmes role in nearly getting the Jets to a Super Bowl in 2010. It will be interesting to see how a fully healthy Holmes can produce in 2014, depending on the offense he ends up on. Arizona could be a potential landing place.



Unfortunately in New York, it kind of seems like everything went downhill from here.



With the departure of Holmes, the depth chart is now headlined by Jeremy Kerley, David Nelson and Stephen Hill. The Jets are expected to be active in the free agent market for a wide receiver. We have included links below to the work we’ve done previewing some of their potential targets. The team is also likely to consider adding another receiver or two in the NFL Draft, which is particularly deep this year at the position.

Holmes always had a contentious relationship with the New York media and a few locker room issues that were outlined more clearly in Collision: Low Crossers. However, his teammates always spoke of him in a high regard and in our personal dealings with him, he was always a courteous and kind individual.

When they cut Sanchez, I'm sending some Ice cold Rocky Mountain refreshment to Jetmanincanada. Cutting Holmes isn't worth it, BUT Sanchez is worth a 30 pack for my friend in the great white north.

Yeah, I loved when he did them and we were down 42-7, or signaled 1st down, one of three we usually made all game.

Sad thing is, He will probably put up 65, 1100, 7tds in NEW ENGLAND next year.

Santonio Holmes was only as good as the team around him. When Braylon Edwards was here they made a dynamic duo. Wish him the best lets see who Idzik signs and drafts for WRs until we start celebrating.

That is the sad thing. Guy is the most talented WR we've had in a long time... Unfortunately he's a douche and hurt often. If he ends up with a real QB and stays healthy, I'd bet he'll have a good season.

(Chandler)'s a nice piece as long as he's the 7th most important player on your roster....I think they're going to be disappointed when they see he's just a pumped-up Drew Gooden.

Still very excited for the day we have a WR as good as JN thinks Braylon is!!!
