NFL Free Agency 2014: New York Jets expected to cut Santonio Holmes soon


Wide receiver Santonio Holmes may soon be searching to play for the third team in his career as Pro Football Talk reports that the New York Jets are expected to cut the veteran any day now.

The move would send Holmes out into the upcoming free agency field and open up some financial room for the team as Holmes was due to make $8.25 million this upcoming season, a price tag that isn’t necessarily worth his production lately.

Holmes joined the Jets right after he was the hero for the Pittsburgh Steelers in their last Super Bowl win against the Arizona Cardinals with his spectacular catch in the back of the end zone. In 2011, what may be considered his best season in the Big Apple, Holmes only totaled just a little over 650 yards receiving. Aside from that, he’s been hampered with nagging injuries, including a foot issue which began in the 2012 year and carried over into ’13.

    Holmes never did produce for the Jets. There is talk they will try to resign him after cutting him, at a much lower rate. Personally, I think its time to move on, he’d serve little purpose being on the roster.
