New York Jets Receiver Santonio Holmes Would Fit Well With Baltimore Ravens As Free Agent
It has been a difficult couple of years for New York Jets receiver Santonio Holmes. Injuries have held him to 15 appearances out of 32 games. His talent makes him New York’s best wide out, but these health problems hampered production. Without Holmes, the remainder of this receiving corps faced problems making big plays consistently.
There are some decent depth players like Jeremy Kerely and David Nelson. They must add an elite No. 1 target while also bringing in another viable option. It is expected that Holmes will be released, saving the Jets $8.25 million in cap space. Despite declining stats that include only touchdown receptions the last two years, as well as creating some distractions in Gang Green’s locker room, there would be interest.
One team that should reach out is QB Joe Flacco’s Baltimore Ravens. Last offseason’s lopsided Anquan Boldin trade robbed him of his best target. Instead, playmaker Torrey Smith faced extra attention from opposing defenses. Jacoby Jones has tremendous speed, but he does not represent an elite receiver. This year’s Draft boasts great prospects like Sammy Watkins and Marquis Lee. Currently at No. 16, Baltimore will most likely miss out on Watkins.
Lee could be available, but even if they select him, the Ravens could use two solid weapons. Flacco’s great arm only does so much when his best receivers constantly get jammed in coverage. Jones will also become an unrestricted free agent soon. Head coach John Harbaugh has established a strong enough culture to handle Holmes. The veteran may also like playing against his former Pittsburg Steelers club even though that trade was nearly four years ago. One more solid presence might help Baltimore return to playoff contention.
