Trainer: Santonio Holmes will find a football home in 2014


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) Free agent wide receiver Santonio Holmes is confident he will hook up with a team before training camp, trainer Tom Shaw told the New York Post.

"He'll definitely be on a team," Shaw said. "As long as teams don't think he'll be a distraction, he's going to get picked up."

Holmes has declined markedly since peaking with 1,248 yards receiving for Pittsburgh in 2009. He managed just 23 catches for 456 yards in 11 games with the Jets last season.

Shaw added that Holmes is aware that he won't be a No. 1 receiver for his future team, but that he "wants to go to a place where he can catch 60 balls a year."


Decision from Santonio Holmes not expected pre-draft


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) Free agent wide receiver Santonio Holmes expected to take his time in looking for a new job, after he was cut by the Jets this offseason.

According to ProFootballTalk.com, Holmes is expected to make a decision on his next team once the draft is complete. With a deep receiver class, he wants to see where his best chance for playing time will be before he makes a decision.

Holmes was limited to 11 games a year ago with the Jet, finishing with 23 receptions for 456 yards and one touchdown. He has not topped 800 yards since leaving the Steelers in 2009.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) The Jets will cut receiver Santonio Holmes and his $8.25 million base salary "any day now," reports ProFootballTalk.com. Holmes was willing to take a pay cut, "but either that wasn't an option or the two sides couldn't agree on an acceptable pay rate," the report said.

The Jets gave Holmes $24 million guaranteed when they signed him in 2011.


Dumping three contracts would give Jets money to spend


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2014) The Jets are likely to allow three highly paid players to leave in free agency, ESPN has speculated.

Dumping the contracts of wide receiver Santonio Holmes, quarterback Mark Sanchez and cornerback Antonio Cromartie would create $26.1 million in salary cap space, giving the Jets a total of more than $40 million in cap room.


Jets receivers show up for final game


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Jets actually got some solid production out of the wide receiver corps Sunday, in a 20-7 win over the Dolphins in Week 17.

David Nelson led the team with 66 yards on five receptions, but the team also got contribution from Jeremy Kerley and Santonio Holmes. Holmes finished with 41 yards on three receptions, while Kerley hauled in five passes for 40 yards.

Neither player reached even 600 yards this season in the Jets' woeful passing offense, with Kerley leading the team with 523 yards. Holmes finished with 456 yards and Nelson adding 423 yards.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Jets running back Chris Ivory (quadriceps, ankle) and Santonio Holmes (foot, hamstring) are active and in uniform for Week 17 against the Dolphins, and that doesn't come as much of a surprise. Both players were considered probable on the injury report for the game. 

Five on Jets offense probable for Week 17 battle


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The others are tackle Austin Howard and tight end Kellen Winslow with knee issues and center Nick Mangold (toe).


Three Jets make minor contributions to win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) A trio of Jets skill position players contributed to a victory Sunday against Cleveland, led by two disappointing veterans. Tight end Kellen Winslow caught three passes for 35 yards while wide receiver Santonio Holmes added two receptions for 20 yards.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Santonio Holmes expresses desire to remain with Jets


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) Outspoken wide receiver Santonio Holmes said Wednesday he would be willing to take a pay cut to remain a member of the Jets, per Newsday.

Critics might argue that his performance this year merits a pay cut. Holmes, who missed five games due to injury, has only caught more than three passes once all season and has not scored a touchdown since Week 3.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) The Jets received minor contributions from the receiving core during Sunday's loss to the Panthers in Week 15.

Santonio Holmes criticizes Carolina defensive backs


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes gave Sunday foe Carolina some bulletin board material on Thursday.

"Not to call these guys out, but their secondary is probably the weakest link on their defense," he told the media.

The Panthers rank fifth in the NFL in passing yards allowed and second in touchdowns given up through the air, though a strong pass rush deserves some of the credit.


Santonio Holmes just misses hauling in TD Week 14


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes was more involved on offense Week 14 vs. Oakland a week after playing just three snaps against the Dolphins. Unfortunately, Holmes still had modest numbers in a 37-27 win.

Holmes finished with three catches for 55 yards on five targets. Holmes got off to a quick start, picking up 32 yards on his first reception on the opening drive. Unfortunately, Holmes didn't make much of an impact after that. He had a 13-yard reception on his second catch in the second quarter and just missed a 5-yard touchdown in the second quarter, but the fade pass into the corner of the end zone went off his fingertips.

The Jets are back in action Week 15 at Carolina.


Jets clear a slew of injured players Week 14


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Jets guard Willie Colon (calf), cornerback Antonio Cromartie (hip), defensive tackle Kenrick Ellis (back), wide receiver Santonio Holmes (foot, hamstring), running back Chris Ivory (ankle), wide receiver Jeremy Kerley (elbow), center Nick Mangold (wrist), linebacker Garrett McIntyre (knee), cornerback Dee Milliner (wrist), wide receiver Greg Salas (finger), quarterback Geno Smith (right wrist), defensive Muhammad Wilkerson (wrist) and tight end Kellen Winslow (knee) were all cleared to play Week 14 vs. Oakland. All of these players were listed as probable.

Nine offensive players probable on Jets injury report


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) The Jets are quite healthy as they prepare to host Oakland on Sunday. All 14 players on their Friday injury list are probable, including nine offensive players.

They are linemen Willie Colon (calf) and Nick Mangold (wrist), tight end Kellen Winslow (knee), wide receiver Stephen Hill (knee), Santonio Holmes (foot/hamstring), Jeremy Kerley (elbow) and Greg Salas (finger), running back Chris Ivory (ankle) and quarterback Geno Smith (wrist).


Is Santonio Holmes a trustworthy Fantasy option?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2013) Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes is having another injury-marred campaign in 2013, which has made him a risky Fantasy option heading into Week 14 vs. Oakland. It's especially concerning seeing how Holmes was limited to three snaps in Week 13 because of his latest injury issue.

Jets coach Rex Ryan said the Jets made the decision to pull Holmes from the game because he didn't show good "burst" Sunday against the Dolphins. Holmes might need a good week of practice to show the coaches he can be an effective option in the passing game against Oakland.

If he plays Week 14, Holmes will face an Oakland secondary yielding 189.8 receiving yards and 24.5 Fantasy points per week to wide receivers. Receivers have also totaled 14 touchdowns in 12 games.

Not helping Holmes' cause for Fantasy purposes has been the recent poor play of rookie quarterback Geno Smith, who will be back under center after being pulled from Sunday's game against Miami. All the signs point to benching Holmes in Fantasy, so it's probably best to look toward other alternatives Week 14.


Coach's decision led to Santonio Holmes' limited reps


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2013) Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes said his very limited workload (three snaps) Sunday against the Dolphins came down to a coach's decision.

"I’m doing good [physically]," Holmes said Sunday, per the New York Post. "It was a coach’s decision. [I had] limited plays coming off an injury, so we wanted to monitor that and make sure everything is OK for the rest of the season."

Holmes came into Week 13 as questionable because of a balky hamstring.

"It wasn’t my decision. … I’m a player here. I have to go with what the coaches say. You can’t go against the coaches at all," said Holmes, who added he didn’t think he could have played the entire game, either.
