New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes Disappears In Week 15, Should Be Released During Offseason
Great players show up when they’re needed most by their teams. This is one reason why New York Jets receiver Santonio Holmes is not a great player. The former Super Bowl MVP’s talent remains undeniable. However, Holmes can’t back up his trash-talking ways any longer.
His 18 catches during 2013 looks bad despite injuries. Referring to the Carolina Panthers‘ secondary as the “weak link” really came back to bite him. Every time QB Geno Smith looked his way, you could see extra attention being paid to him. Smith found him early on with a definite first down strike, only to watch it hit the turf. There were other plays that contributed to their loss, but this could have established an early rhythm.
Jeff Cumberland and Jeremy Kerley came through on the touchdown scoring drive, actually showing effort. Holmes, on the other hand, often looks disinterested. Financially, New York would also benefit from his outright release over the offseason. $10 million would instantly become freed for other players to be added. Safety is an issue for the team, so this money could come in handy.
Wideouts in the 2014 draft class could include Jordan Mathews and Mike Evans. Bringing in Jeremy Macklin at a reasonable contract could add speed. Elite teams need a better No.1 option then Holmes. His ego is also damaging, and he needs to move on soon. Stephen Hill looks like a bust and could also be gone.
