SANTONIO HOLMES STAYS WITH THE JETS
Mon, 13 Feb 2012 02:46 PM EST

From the instant the season stopped, the NY Jets expounded divisive wide receiver Santonio Holmes was not going anywhere. Now it’s recognized. Mega lottery

The New York Jets’ financial commitment to Holmes practically doubled, meaning they are locked into him for $15.25 million in guarantees. A $7.5 million guarantee (the majority of his 2013 income) was triggered by his being on the roster after the 2nd day of the waiver period.

Holmes previously was assured his 2012 salary, $7.75 million, the 2nd year of the five-year, $45 million deal he signed last summer.

Unwilling to cut him loose and eat that much money, the Jets made it clear from the beginning of the offseason they were committed to making it work with Holmes, whose rift with quarterback Mark Sanchez became public at the end of a upsetting 8-8 season.

Coach Rex Ryan, in a consultation at the Super Bowl, declared Sanchez and Holmes spoke by phone and were making an attempt to schedule a sit-down, maybe even a weekend-long meeting, in an effort to resolve their discrepancies. Powerball lottery

“I think they are actually going to get together,” Ryan expounded. “Look, we were all disappointed at the way in which the season went. That’s one thing we share. We also have a powerful wish to win, to proper the ship. The previous season, they had fantastic chemistry. There’s good enough commonly shared ground to bring them back.”

Holmes slipped into such displeasure at the end of the season that 2 colleagues said they went so far as to research his contract situation to discover if it was feasible to cut him. Holmes, frustrated by his role, was benched late in the season conclusion after jawing with colleagues in the huddle. Some players claimed they felt he had “drop” in the game.

In the days leading into the last game, Holmes and Sanchez clashed in an after-hours, wide receivers-quarterback conference that was arranged by Sanchez. Holmes stopped attending the meetings, which many felt was a show of disrespect towards Sanchez.

Away from chemistry problems, Holmes’ production dropped last season. He finished with only 51 catches for 654 yards and eight touchdowns, and he has gone 25 uninterrupted games (including postseason) without a 100-yard game.

After making several big plays in 2010, helping the NY Jets to the American Football Conference (AFC) Championship Game, Holmes became the Jets’ No. 1 free-agent priority. He played the 2010 season on the final year of his rookie deal following being traded from the Pittsburgh Steelers, but the former Super Bowl MVP hit the jackpot last summer.

Holmes, Braylon Edwards and Brad Smith were unlimited free agents, and the Jets identified Holmes as their No. one receiver, letting Edwards and Smith walk.

To accentuate his faith in Holmes, Ryan named him a team captain, a call that backfired. After the season, Ryan admitted it was a mistake for him to name captains, adding that there will be no captains in future times.

Johnson insisted the Jets’ desire to keep Holmes had nothing to do with the warranted cash, and they suspect he’ll rebound in 2012. Holmes will have a new receiving teammate (Plaxico Burress, a free agent, won’t be back) and a new coordinator, Tony Sparano. Holmes clashed with the previous coordinator, Brian Schottenheimer.
