The Jets, in what can only be described as a brief fit of madness in which they believed they were the Yankees, have made Santonio Holmes one of the highest-paid wide receivers in football. A five-year, $50 million contract with $24 million guaranteed puts him above such luminaries as Larry Fitzgerald on the salary scale, and all but guarantees the Jets won't be able to re-sign Braylon Edwards. Is this the right move for Rex Ryan's squad?
Holmes scored two clutch last-second touchdowns in 2010, but he has never been hugely productive. How good a receiver is he?
For a wide receiver, especially, $50 million is a lot of money. Did the Jets overpay for Holmes?
Santonio or Braylon?
The Jets likely will not have enough money to re-sign Edwards. Would you have kept Holmes over Edwards?
Now that Edwards is probably gone, the Jets will be looking to replace his production in the lineup. Randy Moss and Plaxico Burress have been mentioned as targets. Who would be a better fit?
