Default Santonio Holmes traded to Jets

According to PFT, Holmes was traded to the Jets for a 5th rounder.

5th rounder for a former Super Bowl MVP?

I want to say it's because of recent character issues

Default Re: Santonio Holmes traded to Jets

This has got to be an error.

I know Holmes underachieved last year (I had him in Fantasy Football, so I should know). But for a 5th rounder?

Only reasoning I can imagine this has happened is that there has been a sudden "spring cleaning" with the shenanigans by Ben and Santonio.

They ought to trade Ben while they're at it. He's going to end up in sex addiction clinics like Tiger and Jesse James did. LOL.

Confirmed by ESPN.com, via this link.

So do the Jets also get the guy who took the rap for throwing the glass at the lady? They're going to need that guy to be with Santonio in NY. 24/7.

If Sanchez settles down and plays well...that team might be really good.

Wow! I did not see that one coming... I guess this means the Jets won't be going WR in the first round... Maybe they will want to outbid the Chargers for Ryan Matthews??

applies more pressure to a Texan secondary less Dunta, that's going to be a really tough match-up to win.

Many mocks had Kyle Wilson going to the Steelers. I see Dez Bryant or Demaryious Thomas now.

Default Re: Santonio Holmes traded to Jets

He'll more than likely be suspended the first four games of the season for violating the leagues substance abuse policy. This had to be factored in the trade and could help us if we played the Jets in the first quarter of next season. However, the Texans and Jets requested a Thanksgiving matchup making it likely we'll have to deal with him.

This is what I was thinking, too. It could have been part of the reason, but it seems like they could have got a bit more value. A 5th rounder just seems low.

The Jets now have the most overrated WR corps. They'll shoulder the load okay but let's not start annointing them the saviors of their previous teams. Holmes is nobody on another team. He was well utilized and overachieved as a result.

I really applaud Rooney's gall at removing a prospective cancer. I wonder if they'll also ship Roethlisberger out as well? Probably not but I wouldn't be all that stunned to see it happening.

A 5th? The Jets may have gotten themselves a hard bargain. I like it. Tough to imagine the Steelers getting fleeced here but it sure looks like that at first glance. I don't know what to make of it...

Holmes had only one good season (last year, 1248 yards receiving iirc) so maybe the Steelers know something that there not letting the Jets in on

Exactly what type of season were you expecting from him? 79 receptions, 1248 yards and 5 TDs, he had a career year. Can't believe they only had to give up a 5.

Default Re: Santonio Holmes traded to Jets

He is in the last year of his contract and will be missing 4 games. They gave up a 5th to rent a guy for 12 games. Steelers obviously were not planning on re-signing him. Seems fair.

Question is, does anyone see the Steelers making a trade for Marshall?

Why would they go after Brandon Marshall? They just traded one guy with character issues. Can't imagine they'd replace a bad character WR with another one.

I'm pretty sure the Jets have alot more in plan than just renting a guy for one season.

Santonio Holmes for a 5th round pick is highway robbery. Hell we got a 5th round pick for Travis Johnson and I thought that was highway robbery, because we probably would've just cut him.

Santonio Holmes is >>>> Travis Johnson. (It would've been awesome if we could've turned that 5th round pick into Santonio Holmes) the Jets made out like freaking bandits. WTF are the Steelers thinking.
