Free agent WR Santonio Holmes worked out for the Bengals on Thursday.
As did David Nelson and Greg Little. The Bengals are looking for a warm body after sending James Wright to I.R. Holmes was a bench warmer for the Bears last season, catching eight passes in nine games. He turned 31 in March. Thu, Jul 30, 2015 01:49:00 PM

Free agent Santonio Holmes hasn't received any interest this offseason.

Holmes appeared in nine games with Chicago in 2014 prior to getting released. Despite only entering his age-31 season, his on-field skills have been in major decline. Holmes didn't sign until mid-August last year and is in danger of falling out of the league.

Free agent Santonio Holmes visited with the Chiefs.

Holmes was released by the Bears earlier this week and went unclaimed on waivers. With Donnie Avery and A.J. Jenkins sidelined, the Chiefs are down to just four healthy receivers. 30-year-old Holmes struggled when on the field this season, but could provide a veteran option behind Dwayne Bowe.

Bears waived WR Santonio Holmes.

It likely means WR Marquess Wilson (collarbone) will be activated from I.R./designated for return. And Chris Williams has punt-return duties locked up, leaving Holmes useless as a receiver who doesn't play special teams. The 30 year old caught eight passes for 67 yards across nine games as the Bears' seldom-used No. 3 receiver. The 2008 Super Bowl MVP's career may be over. He was on the streets until mid-August before the Bears scooped him up.

Santonio Holmes caught two passes for nine yards in the Bears' Week 3 win over the Jets.

It was Holmes' return to New York. He saw just three targets on the night as the fifth option in the passing game. Holmes added one punt return for 11 yards. He won't have any fantasy value unless one of Alshon Jeffery or Brandon Marshall gets injured. Even then, at age 30, there won't be a ton of upside.
Tue, Sep 23, 2014 12:25:00 AM

Santonio Holmes had two catches for 20 yards in Week 2 against the 49ers.

Even with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery playing injured, Holmes was a non-factor. Holmes remains well off the fantasy radar.
Mon, Sep 15, 2014 02:05:00 AM

Santonio Holmes is the only Bears receiver assured of playing in Week 2.

Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery are questionable after barely practicing this week, while Josh Morgan is doubtful after suffering a late-week setback with his groin injury. Holmes saw five targets on Opening Day against the Bills. He's someone to consider as a FanDuel punt play in tournaments.
Fri, Sep 12, 2014 03:01:00 PM

Santonio Holmes caught two passes for 21 yards in Sunday's Week 1 loss to Buffalo.

He was targeted five times by Jay Cutler. Holmes took on an expanded role after Alshon Jeffery went down with a hamstring injury in the second half. He's locked in as the Bears' No. 3 receiver, but remains off the fantasy radar. Jeffery is expected to be fine for Week 2.
Sun, Sep 7, 2014 06:11:00 PM

Profootballtalk.com reports the Bears are "very pleased" with Santonio Holmes and expect him to "have a real role" in Marc Trestman's offense.

Holmes appears ticketed for a committee at third receiver, sharing time with superior blocker Josh Morgan. Holmes finished August with a bang, reeling in a 32-yard touchdown in Thursday night's preseason finale. He's someone to monitor in deep leagues, but is merely a WR5/6 for fantasy purposes.
Fri, Aug 29, 2014 01:49:00 PM

Santonio Holmes caught 1-of-2 targets for seven yards in the Bears' third preseason game Friday night at Seattle.

Josh Morgan opened the game as Chicago's No. 3 receiver, but Holmes mixed in with the first-team offense in the second quarter. He primarily ran with the twos, however, and made his first catch in a Bears uniform on a third-quarter slant for a gain of seven. Holmes is unlikely to make much fantasy noise in Chicago, but he definitely has a chance to help the Bears on the field.
Sat, Aug 23, 2014 12:40:00 AM

Bears coach Marc Trestman isn't worried about new WR Santonio Holmes' attitude.

"We spent time with him," Trestman said Monday. "I mean, people change. ... You’re out for a while, you get a good, hard look at where you are not only in your work life, as well as other aspects of your life." Holmes' sometimes toxic personality is a big part of the reason he languished on the open market until mid-August. Provided he can avoid making waves, he's the huge favorite to begin the season as the Bears' No. 3 receiver. He's "competing" with Josh Morgan.
Mon, Aug 18, 2014 04:46:00 PM

Bears signed WR Santonio Holmes.

Chicago worked out Holmes last week. With Marquess Wilson on the shelf for at least the first several weeks of the season, Holmes will compete with Josh Morgan and Eric Weems for the Bears' No. 3 receiver job. If he has anything left in the tank, he should win the competition going away. Holmes is not yet on the redraft radar, but he is a name to watch in the Bears' final two preseason games.
Sat, Aug 16, 2014 10:37:00 AM

The Cleveland Plain-Dealer is hearing that the Browns are not interested in free agent WR Santonio Holmes.

Wideout-needy teams are kicking Holmes' tires, but no one is biting. It speaks volumes about the deterioration of his on-field play and reputation as a cancer in the locker room. Holmes' NFL career is in limbo at just 30 years old.
Wed, Aug 6, 2014 08:58:00 AM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports free agent Santonio Holmes has drawn interest from the Browns.

That's in addition to the Bears, who worked Holmes out on Tuesday. It's not surprising, as the Browns' receiver corps is perhaps the thinnest in the league. The apparent newfound interest in Holmes comes after he spent nearly five months on the street without so much as drawing a visit. Holmes' attitude has caught up with him, though he's trending toward having a Week 1 roster spot.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bears worked out free agent WRs Santonio Holmes and Ben Obomanu.

The Bears do not plan to sign either at this point. This is the first hint of any interest in Holmes this offseason. Holmes insists he is healthy and ready to contribute, but his on-field performance is no longer good enough to justify his divisive locker room presence.
