Free agent WR Santino Holmes is still hopeful he will find a team during training camp.
30-year-old Holmes has heard nary a whisper since he was released by the Jets in March. Holmes has struggled with injuries the last two seasons, only playing 15 games and recording 43 catches. He insists he is healthy now and ready to contribute. Holmes has become tough to hold, even in Dynasty leagues. Jun 14 - 10:33 AM

ESPN's Scott Brown reports the Steelers haven't shown "any interest" in a reunion with free agent Santonio Holmes.

Speaking in a Tuesday radio interview, Steelers CB Ike Taylor said both Holmes and free agent James Harrison are interested in returning to the Steel City, but the feeling isn't mutual. Now on the wrong side of 30 and coming off a star-crossed tenure with the Jets, Holmes has been greeted by crickets on the open market.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport mentions free agents Santonio Holmes and Miles Austin as names for Browns fans to monitor in the wake of Josh Gordon's suspension.

It's unclear if the Browns have actually reached out to either, but they're two of the better free agent receivers available. Holmes knows coach Mike Pettine from their days together in New York. He flashed signs of the old Santonio at times last season but may not be worth the distraction. Austin has next to nothing left and can't stay on the field. Gordon's expected ban is 8-16 games.
May 12 - 8:36 PM

Profootballtalk reports free agent Santonio Holmes is expected to wait until after the draft to choose a new team.

It's the first we've heard of Holmes since he was released on the eve of free agency. Holmes' market has been positively frigid, and the fact that he's "waiting" to sign is an indication he expects it to remain so. We're not surprised that there's essentially no interest in a 30-year-old wideout with injury and attitude issues.
Apr 8 - 7:53 PM

Jets released WR Santonio Holmes.

It was always only a matter of when, not if, Gang Green cut Holmes. He was due a $1 million roster bonus on Thursday. The move creates $8.25 million in cap space, but also leaves behind $2.5 million in dead money. Now on the wrong side of 30, Holmes has grown increasingly injury prone, and proven to be a slow healer. His effort had become a question mark. Holmes has just 43 catches for 728 yards and two touchdowns over his past 15 games. Holmes' name is bigger than his game. He's had one 1,000-yard season in eight years. Although his talent is worth a low-cost flier, Holmes is not going to burn up the open market.
Mar 10 - 3:08 PM

A source tells PFT that Santonio Holmes will be cut soon.

As expected. Holmes has a $1 million roster bonus due on March 13 and carries a $10.75 cap number. The Jets can save $8.25 million against the cap by releasing an oft-injured, locker room cancer that has been wildly unproductive ever since signing a $45 million contract in 2011. In four seasons with the Jets, Holmes has totaled 146 catches for 2,128 yards and 16 touchdowns. They're going to completely overhaul their wideout corps this offseason through free agency and the draft. PFT suggests the Rams, Cardinals and Steelers as possible landing spots for Holmes.

ESPN New York expects the Jets to release Santonio Holmes.

Gang Green can save $8.25 million against the salary cap by releasing Holmes and his $10.75 million cap hit. Holmes is due a $1 million roster bonus on March 13, but we'd expect the Jets to cut ties with the soon-to-be 30-year-old before then. Once the Jets release Holmes, Mark Sanchez, and Antonio Cromartie, they'll have over $40 million in cap space. Cromartie could re-sign.
Jan 22 - 3:24 PM

Santonio Holmes is owed a $1 million roster bonus on March 13.

It's in addition to Holmes' scheduled 2014 base salary of $8.25 million, and a $250,000 workout bonus. Owed a total of $9.5 million in salary and bonuses, Holmes is the likeliest cap casualty among NFL wide receivers. We suspect the Jets will cut the cord on Holmes well before his roster bonus comes due.
Jan 2 - 4:04 PM

Santonio Holmes caught three passes for 41 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over Miami.

He was targeted four times, behind Jeremy Kerley and David Nelson. Holmes has been on the injury report all season and was healthy for just 11 games. Despite saying he's open to restructuring his contract, he's almost certainly played his last game with the Jets. Holmes is unlikely to draw much interest in free agency if released and won't be more than a WR4 in 2014 fantasy drafts.
Sun, Dec 29, 2013 05:18:00 PM

Santonio Holmes (foot, hamstring) is active for Week 17 against the Dolphins.

Holmes was limited in practice this week, but his status was never in doubt. Jeremy Kerley (elbow) is also active and will start in two-wide sets. The Jets inactives are QB David Garrard, RB Darius Reynaud, LB Jermaine Cunningham, OL William Campbell, LT Ben Ijalana, OL Oday Aboushi, and TE Chris Pantale.
Sun, Dec 29, 2013 11:33:00 AM

Santonio Holmes (foot) is listed as probable for Week 17.

Holmes practiced on a limited basis throughout the week, but his status was never in doubt. He's nothing more than a WR5 for Sunday's game at Miami.
Sat, Dec 28, 2013 07:49:00 PM

Santonio Holmes caught two passes for 20 yards in Week 16 against the Browns.

Holmes was targeted six times on the day and worked mainly against Joe Haden. Geno Smith liked working the middle over the field instead of getting it to Holmes on the outside. Holmes is just a WR5 for the season finale in Miami.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 06:42:00 PM

Santonio Holmes (hamstring) is listed as probable for Week 16.

Holmes was limited in practice every day this week, but is on track to start against the Browns. He's a WR5 in fantasy championship week.
Fri, Dec 20, 2013 02:42:00 PM

Santonio Holmes (foot, hamstring) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

Holmes doesn't do full practices. He's a WR5 for the fantasy finals.
Thu, Dec 19, 2013 06:10:00 PM

Santonio Holmes said he's willing to take a pay cut to remain with the Jets next season.

"Anything for the team," Holmes said with straight face. It's an ironic statement, as it comes from a player who has produced just 38 catches over the last two seasons while getting labeled a locker room cancer and failing to fight through injuries. There's almost no way Holmes is back with the Jets even if he'd take a veteran's minimum deal. The five-year, $45 million deal he signed in 2011 proved to be straight robbery.
