The Jets have released Santonio Holmes (Jets, March 10).
“I appreciate Tone’s contributions over the last four seasons,” head coach Rex Ryan said in a statement. “I’ve always admired his knack for making the clutch play. He’s a tremendous competitor who wants the ball in his hands when the game is on the line. I wish him nothing but the best.”
The team will save $8.25 million in cutting him (Cimini, March 10).
Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comLike the Cro move, this has been in the cards for a while now, with the difference being that Cro had a chance to return and his move wasn’t two years in the making. The Jets now add another chunk of change on the cap and we can expect them to be very active in the coming week.
