Ward is 34 and may be playing on borrowed time. Wallace is good, but how good? Sweed looks to be a bust.
They should look to draft a wideout.
Can't blame them for making this trade. The headaches going into training camp would have been too much. Cut the excess baggage and move on. Only a handful of NFL players are truly irreplacable,and Holmes isn't one of them.
Word is that if Pitt couldn't get a draft pick for him, that they were ready to just release him. So that makes a lot of sense about how eager they were to get rid of him.
Yeah I heard that too.
It was in large part due to Santo's antics via Twitter. He made a bunch of comments about how he should punch the girl suing him in the face, how he was smoking weed, and telling people he hopes they die.
Basically, he's an immature little child that didn't belong on the team. The Rooney's don't **** around with that nonsense.
4gm suspension and he is a free agent at seasons end. Pitt wasnt going to pay him. He has a list of off the field incidents. What did you guys think Holmes was worth given what has been laid out?
GOBBalicious does have a point. WRs just don't seem to have a load of trade value. The Boldin deal was what, him + 5th for 3rd + 4th? Moss for a 4th. Miami got a 2nd for Welker and a lot of people (obviously wrong) thought that was too much when it happened. Throw in all the off field stuff and this is what you get.
I still think it's hilarious that if they lose him the compensatory pick could be higher than a 5th though.
Decent moves ON PAPER....Look deeper into it. Santonio Holmes, D'brickashaw Ferguson, Nick Mangold, Braylon Edwards, Santonio Holmes, & Antonio Cromartie, Leon Washinton will ALL be free agents after next season....this is the 1st and last time all of these players will be on the same team, theres no way, no chance the Jets can re-sign all of them...If they don't win it all this year, consider it almost a fail b/c there will probably be a downfall in 2011, MOST LIKELY.
This is my only concern to be honest the resigning of players what I am hoping for is people buying into that contender mentality like the Patriots and people put team first and decent money as a priority
The chemistry stuff i am not worried about. Braylon fell in line. The locker room is strong plus as mentioned Rex us against the world mentality will keep him in line.
