Jets make moves to welcome Holmes

Folks wondered who the New York Jets would release when receiver Santonio Holmes returned from his four-game suspension.

David Clowney? Patrick Turner?

Yes, and yes.

The Jets on Monday waived Clowney and Turner because they also re-signed defensive end Howard Green a day after Shaun Ellis injured his knee.

Even before they left the Ralph Wilson Stadium visitors' locker room Sunday after detonating the Buffalo Bills, the Jets already were looking forward to adding Holmes to a team that has averaged 32.3 points in three straight AFC East victories.

"It could be deadly," Jets tight end Dustin Keller said of getting Holmes back. "It's going to be tough to stop us. It's tough when you have as many threats in the passing game as we do, and then you have the best rushing attack in the NFL. You almost have too many options."

When asked about welcoming Holmes back to the offense, Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez replied "That's pretty scary."
