New York Jets Have Every Right to Restructure Contract of Santonio Holmes
One of the main reasons why the New York Jets struggled on offense at times during the 2012 season was because of Santonio Holmes–who only appeared in four games after suffering a season-ending foot injury in October. Holmes has proven to be one of the most effective wide receivers in the NFL at times, but to say he deserves $11.25 million in 2013 is nothing short of ridiculous–which is why the Jets have every right in the world to want to restructure his contract.
New York made numerous cuts to key players last week and the last thing Holmes wants to see happen is have the same thing happen to him because the Jets didn’t want to pay him all of that money. When taking a closer look at the numbers Holmes has displayed throughout his career, it was surprising to see New York willing to pay him that much money in the first place.
Not only did Holmes finish the 2011 season with just 51 catches for 654 yards and eight touchdowns, but he’s only broken the 1,000-yard receiving mark once in his seven-year career–which came during his final season with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2009. There’s no question the Jets would be lucky to have Holes around for the 2013 season, but if he was really a team player–he would restructure his deal to save the team some money.
It would be one thing if the numbers were better for Holmes, but clearly that’s not the case with this situation–which is why New York has every right to feel the way they do about their wideout.
