Breaking – New York Jets Release WR Santonio Holmes

The New York Jets have released wide receiver Santonio Holmes

In a long expected move that will immediately free up 8.25 million of cap space, a source close to the team has confirmed the New York Jets have released wide receiver Santonio Holmes. Before 2011, Holmes was signed to a monster 5 year, 45.25 million dollar contract after putting together a clutch 2010 season for the team. Unfortunately, he never came close to living up to the deal, struggling with inconsistency and injuries over the past three seasons. Holmes is likely to enter a harsh market that is loaded with players who have been more productive in recent years. He may be forced into taking a one year “show me” deal.

New York Jets Target – Golden Tate

Joe Caporoso breaks down potential New York Jets free agent target, WR Golden Tate

Considering the New York Jets are unlikely to pursue Eric Decker, Golden Tate is arguably the best available option for the team at wide receiver in free agency. You can make the case for Jeremy Maclin but he is unlikely to leave Philadelphia and has injury concerns. You can make a case for Hakeem Nicks, if you think he can regain his 2011 form. Yet, if we are looking at the past season and a general improvement rate over the past couple of seasons, Tate is the top option.

Why are we such big fans of this under 6 foot receiver who is yet to register a 1,000 yard season? Here is an overview of Tate:

Debunking The “#1” Wide Receiver Myth

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets mythical search for a number one receiver

The New York Jets need wide receivers. More broadly, the New York Jets need pass catchers. They need tight ends. They could use a running back who could be a factor in the passing game. This isn’t news to anybody who watched the team last season, or the season before…or the season before that.

The quarterback play has been substandard. Nobody can argue that. Yet, the reality is the Jets likely starter in 2014 is a second year quarterback, who finished 2013 relatively strong but needs some targets. The Jets cannot afford to burden him with a bottom three group of wide receivers and tight ends…again.
