Santonio Holmes is Baffled that he is not with an NFL Team

All remains quiet on the Santonio Holmes front. As other receivers are being signed up by new teams, the former Pittsburgh Steelers first-round pick has not drawn any interest on the open market. The former Super Bowl MVP had this to say in an interview with Sports Illustrated this week. It baffles me a little to know that I’m not a part of any organization. It is a gift and a curse...

Chicago Bears: where back-up WRs go to die

Can Santonio Holmes stay relevant in the Bears offense? “Chicago is where receivers go to die,” Muhsin Muhammad told Sports Illustrated back in 2008.  Current Chicago Bears third wide receiver Santonio Holmes might have been well served to pay heed to Muhammad’s warning before signing with the team this preseason.  Although starting receivers, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery...

Ranking the New York Jets draft needs by position

I never was a fan of the “best available” draft philosophy, unless your team is coming off a deep playoff run and have no pressing needs on your roster.

Breaking – New York Jets Release WR Santonio Holmes

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.
