I thought it would be fun to get some opinions on Holmes and his prospects after this season. IMHO his prime has been wasted due to Sanchez's incredibly bad QB play and the inept OC work of Schottenheimer. Should the Jets cut Holmes at the end of the season or any point in-between now and then would / should we sign him? And if its not us what team would be a good fit for him?
Pittsburgh sent him backing because of multiple marijuana arrests and a suspect attitude, Rex Ryan got trashed for naming him a team captain but at the end of the day he is still a very talented receiver. Reason why I even mention us is, correct me if I'm wrong, that Holmes hasn't been in trouble with the law for a long time and we've seen how Harbaugh has fostered a team first attitude. He even brought a notorious diva in Randy Moss to mentor a fledging diva in Crabtree and the other WRs and for a variety of factors we've completely erased any traces of diva attitude and kept trouble making to a minimum or made it completely non-existant through the whole team.
That being said would the Risk / Reward scale tip far enough to the reward side for us to sign him? Otherwise who do you think might bite and sign him if he is released because as it stands there is no way NY keeps him at his current rate of $11M coming back from such a serious injury.
