Steelers Send Holmes to Jets


Santonio Holmes is headed to New York to join Mark Sanchez and the Jets as the Steelers have traded him for a 5th round pick.  Even though Holmes has faced some legal troubles recently, he isn’t expected to be charged.

Not sure why the Bears couldn’t pony up a 5th round pick to get such a talent.  Even if he is suspended a few games as the result of violating the league’s substance abuse policy, I think he’s worth the risk. Holmes is a former Super Bowl MVP and has legit #1 wide receiver talent.

The Bears will host the Jets this season, so they depending on if/when any suspension is enacted and how the schedule shakes out, expect  to see him  in 2010.  More details to come when the schedule is released (supposedly later this week).
