Jets Re-Sign WR Santonio Holmes To A Five-Year, $50M Deal

Discussion in 'New York Jets' started by BigBlueBruiser, Jul 27, 2011.

  1. The New York Jets addressed the No. 1 item on their free-agent list, coming to terms Wednesday morning with wide receiver Santonio Holmes, according to a league source. The deal is for five years and $50 million with $24 million guaranteed, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. That's the highest guarantee ever given to a wide receiver. After serving a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, Holmes made an immediate impact with the Jets, making huge plays in the final minute of three consecutive games last November. This move isn't without risk, as Holmes is one strike away from a one-year suspension by the league.

    Edwards pretty much confirmed that via his Twitter page.

    Holmes left money on the table to sign with the Jets cause of Sanchez...

    Hopefully the Jaguars step up and maybe go after Braylon Edwards then. I'll be annoyed if we don't even make an attempt.

    this is a great signing for the Jets. Now i don't think they will hold onto Braylon Edwards. But I think Holms is a better receiver anyways
