Reports are he is gonna be in NY for 5 more years...
I read the same thing on the Jets board. They said 5-year deal as well, per Schefter.
Bring it on, I say!
Damn, was hoping the skins would steal him. Hopefully they can't afford Edwards too.
Well the delusion that "Don't worry, if the Jets get Asomugha, Sanchez will have to throw to Crotchery as #1, haha"
Damn.... at worst case Holmes and Cotchery isn't bad.
Good move for them assuming they aren't giving him $10 million a year. He bailed them out of a lot of games last year.
They still need a #2 WR. Cotchery sucked last year. They have zero depth too. But that was a good start for them.
Man....this isn't good. If they get Aso and Holmes......man, not good. Is Bill up and working? Waiting for our next move..
Any guesses for the per year amount?? He could have really held them to the fire and worked up the price (if him and his agent wanted to).
I don't know Cotchery has progressively declined over the last three years.
How good of a deal this is depends on how much they're paying him.
Without the March 11th dead money 'bailout' there's no way the Jets could have afforded to keep him.
Nice work commish! *wink*
My guess is 5 years (we know it is 5 years) at $45 million with $20 million guaranteed. Making it $9 million a year. Just a guess though.
Andre Johnson got slightly over $10 million a year last year. Don't see Holmes making a heck of a lot less. I assume it will be about $1 million less a year.
Would anyone be shocked if they go and get Randy for cheap to play across Santonio?
New York Jets agree to deal with Santonio Holmes, sources say - ESPN New York
Agreed. Let's hope that Edwards departs.
Holmes is a good player, but he certainly isn't Andre Johnson or Larry Fitzgerald good and he is getting money as if he is. I think he was a neccessary resigning, but the Jets are really overpaying for him at $10 million a year. I thought the Jets would overpay for him at $9 million a year.
He is a clutch signing for them. He makes me very nervous if the jets are driving down the field. Not a big fan at all of his attitude. I think it pretty much sucks but his talent is undeniable.
It would be very interesting to be in the Jets facility to see what changes they are making to contracts. $ amounts..who knows, I'd also agree with the 8-9 mil range.
They want to compete and you have to give them credit for that. Just more reason to bring your A game to play against this team....the rivalry is great....
....10 m/yr....still not buying that one, that is a one very hefty price tag...
I was hoping the Redskins would sign Holmes, and that would force the Jets to overpay for Edwards, who is certainly an inferior reciever.
The fact that the deal is going to cost the Jets around 50 million makes it a little easier to swallow, but I still hate the Jets getting such a good player in his prime. This is crappy news for Pats fans.
I wouldn't be shocked by any means, like many of us, but the only problem I would have with signing him is whether or not he really "buys into their philosophy." Rex has been great for acquiring some talent by getting guys revved up and wanting to play for him. It's especially evident with the guys on defense, but even on offense there is a sort of attitude. With Randy, he's too old to be getting "pumped up" like the younger guys, and there aren't many guys his own age up there. And he's supposed to have the patience to run routes for someone who's ten years younger? And block a lot for the running game? Not the best fit imo, but Rex could bring him in for the same reason as Kevin O'Connell. And that isn't to say that they wouldn't get production out of him, but if he takes plays off, guys like Bart Scott may call him out and then there'd be hell.
He helped put a nail in the coffin in the pats season. (Although, some people on this board could have ran that route with 8 seconds to throw the damn ball)
EDIT: Hahahaha 10million a year, I feel a little better. What will Sidney Rice get now...
I'm starting a weed fund to send Holmes a congratulation gift. Please make contributions fast so we can get it to him in time for his next drug test.
