Santonio Holmes, who missed most of last season with a foot injury, still is uncertain when he will be able to return to the field.
Holmes in an interview earlier this week declared himself day-to-day. Holmes said he does not want to put himself in a position to re-injure his foot, and will be very cautious upon his return.
The Jets open training camp July 25 and will be without their best offensive threat. Geno Smith has yet to throw a pass to Holmes and it could effect the timing between the two if Smith is named the starter. Holmes has done little football activity yet in his rehab. This is very concerning news for the Jets. It won’t be surprising if Holmes is not ready for week one.
If Holmes is unable to start week one, the Jets will rely heavily on a wide receiving core that lacks a go-to-guy and a serious down field
The New York Jets hope they can get Santonio Holmes’ big play ability back before week one.
threat. Don’t be surprised if the Jets look to pick up another veteran receiver during training camp to ease the stress on their two quarterbacks. Receivers like Braylon Edwards, Brandon Lloyd, Steve Breaston and Deion Branch remain free agents. If Holmes is going to miss significant time, the Jets should consider signing one of these veterans.
With rookies reporting to camp tomorrow for the Jets, rookies Dee Milliner, Sheldon Richardson and Geno Smith remain unsigned. The Jets would like to have all three of them in camp on Monday and are working hard to get deals done. Milliner and Richardson should be signed by Monday but Geno Smith’s contract is very different then the other two. Smith is being investigated by the NFL Players Association because of his signing with Jay-Z. Jay-Z and Roc Nation is not yet certified by the NFLPA however, expect Smith in camp by July 25 when the rest of the team reports.
BEST OF MAXIM
Members of the New York Jets have varying levels of importance when it comes to the team’s success this upcoming season. The Jets could be ok if Dee Milliner doesn’t play lights out from Day 1 because they had a highly ranked pass defense with Kyle Wilson playing corner opposite Antonio Cromartie. If David Harris doesn’t bounce back from a subpar 2012 it will hurt less if Mo...
When the Jets signed free agent tight end and former Brown’s first round pick Kellen Winslow Jr., the fan base had a mixed reaction of excitement and skepticism. Most of the excitement stemmed from the lack of adding anyone remotely talented at the tight end position and the skepticism was due to Winslow Jr. barely playing in the NFL last season. The main concern with Winslow is...
When Santonio Holmes says he’s day to day, he’s not kidding.
The Jets wide receiver, who missed a majority of last season with a foot injury, does not have a timetable for his return.
"I don’t have a target date," Holmes said yesterday at a uStadium Flag Football charity event on Roosevelt Island. "I’m just stating the facts that the season starts soon and...
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that the Jets are working out both Austin Collie and Laurent Robinson. Collie was once a promising young receiver in Indianapolis but his career derailed after he received numerous concussions in a short period of time. Robinson flourished with the Cowboys in 2011 but fell off last season with the Jaguars and fell onto the IR in November...
As much as Jets fans would like to see Geno Smith be their week one starter this season, Mark Sanchez will likely win the job, according to the New York Daily News.
Smith thrived with quick, short passes in college — one of the staples in Mornhinweg’s offense, too — but it’s unlikely that the rookie will be ready to be the Week 1 starter. He’s still working...

Getting drafted by the Jets is a blessing and a curse for Geno Smith. After sitting through the entire first night of the draft and thinking about skipping day two, Smith landed in a situation where the starting quarterback gig is there for the taking.The flip-side of all of that is it’s for a team that can’t get its act together. Case in point, the way they handled the Tim Tebow...

Living in New York can either be very easy or very hard as a sports fan. If you’re a Yankees or a Giants fan you get blessed with World Series victories and Super Bowl championships.

Today, I'm going to the tape for Mark Sanchez and his 2012 performance. Numbers tell a lot, but they don't tell the whole story. I'll be focusing on bigger plays—TDs, INTs, fumbles, etc—but will also look into other plays as well.
