    Santonio Holmes to Jets for 2010 5th rd pick

    Looks like Pittsburgh is weeding out the bad characters. Could Big Ben be next. Meanwhile the Jets are become a Super bowl contending team. Great offseason moves, LT and now Holmes.

    Really smart move.
    I would give a 5th round pick for having Holmes in the Rams, altough hi doesn't fit the Spags pilars.

    Too much bagage and character issues there. However, if the Steelers offered the Rams Big Ben for a maybe a second or even a 1st, should they do it?

    #1 overall pick for Roethlisberger is a little unsettling, perhaps a 2nd + 4th.

    WOW.

    Thumbs up Re: Santonio Holmes to Jets for 2010 5th rd pick

    QB: Mark Sanchez
    RB: Shonn Greene , Neon Leon, LT
    WR: Braylon, Santonio, Jerricho
    TE: D Keller
    Ridiculous O-Line, and Defense.

    If they can keep most of that together for more than one season (NYJ have several FA's in 2011 and 2012), going to be a real, real nice team.

    Re: Santonio Holmes to Jets for 2010 5th rd pick

    Multiple sources have reported that the Jets have traded a 2010 5th round pick for Santonio Holmes. It had been getting awfully quiet around Florham Park, which usually means something is up Mike Tannebaum's sleeve, and that certainly is the case here as the Jets have traded for yet another big name player.

    Holmes, the 2009 Super Bowl MVP, fell out of favor with Pittsburgh after some off-field issues, most notably a positive drug test which will likely keep him out the first four games next season.

    But for a 5th round pick? That's a steal for the Jets. Holmes is a shifty receiver who is still pretty young (26 years old) and talented enough to make some big plays. For the price of a 5th round pick, getting Mark Sanchez an accomplished receiver, one that was the MVP of the Super Bowl just 14 months ago is wild.

    Tannenbaum is banking on the Jets being a good enough team that they can afford to miss Holmes for four games. After all, remember, Vernon Gholston started four games last year in place of Calvin Pace. Holmes's off-field issues are troubling, but like with Cromartie, Tannenbaum is hoping that the Jets' atmosphere will be a positive thing for Holmes.

    Holmes provides more speed and more big play ability in the receiving corps. And with Braylon Edwards and Jerricho Cotchery also on the team, Holmes could be free to return punts, upgrading that position as well.

    For an offseason where the Jets are not allowed to sign free agents before they losing any, bringing in Cromartie, LaDainian Tomlinson, and now Holmes is pretty crazy. Not to mention Jason Taylor and Mark Brunell are high on the Jets radar to come in next.

    Now, the Jets are set at wide receiver, and you can pretty much throw that away as a place the Jets will go in the draft. Expect the focus to be improving the play in the trenches on each side of the ball in the upcoming draft.

    Oh, and Braylon Edwards? You are now on high alert. If Edwards doesn't produce, the Jets now have a viable receiving tandem and could let him walk in free agency after this season. So Holmes provides insurance for Edwards as well. What a shrewd move by Mr. T.

    Re: Santonio Holmes to Jets for 2010 5th rd pick

    Its an interesting trade, no doubt. At first glance, it seems lopsided in the Jets' favor, but there are two factors to consider:

    1. Holmes (as was anticipated at the time to of the trade) has been suspended for four games in the upcoming season; and

    2. Holmes is a FA after this season.

    So, it could end up being a 5th round pick for a guy who will only play 12 regular season games in a Jets uniform.

    Like the Weatherpoon/Gibson trade. Looks sorta lopsided at first, but not sure who got jipped yet. Although Santonio for simply a fifth rounder is not worth just 12 gamesm if he isn't resigned. He's not Moss, albeit he's pretty darn good.

    How many pretty darn good players come out of the late 5th round?

    I don't think it's anywhere near the risk you are making out it to be.

    First of all most 5th rounders simply don't make it.

    Second, the Jets made it to the AFC title game last year with the 31st ranked pass offense. Give Sanchez some weapons and hope he matures and they can do some serious damage right now.

    Third, if Holmes walks, and that's a big if, the Jets will stand to get a compensatory pick. They may end up with a pick as high as a third. Give up a fifth, have a 26 year old super bowl MVP for 12 games + playoffs and get a third the following year. Seems like value to me.

    Finally, who knows what is going on with the league as far as 2011. It's practically armageddon out there. Nobody even knows if there will even be football in 2011. It's a good year to be all in.

    The guy isn't even being counted on as a starting WR. Just a slot and insurance in case Braylon Edwards falls on his face.
