Santonio Is Known As A Clutch Performer
According to league sources by way of ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the New York Jets and wide receiver Santonio Holmes have agreed to a five-year deal.
The contract is said to be worth $50 million, with $24 million in guaranteed dollars.
Now the question is, will there be enough money left to turn around and sign Braylon Edwards?
“It was such a luxury to have both of them last year,” quarterback Mark Sanchez said Tuesday. “It’s almost unrealistic to have that kind of a receiving corps again.”
Sanchez, who is willing to re-work his contract, knows Edwards’ days in New York may be numbered, so he’s willing to make a sacrifice in order to keep both Holmes and Edwards.
“My agent’s already talked to me about that,” Sanchez said. “Whatever we need to do to win, it’s on. I’ll tell the guys upstairs this, too, they know that: Whatever it takes to win. If it’s throwing the ball lefthanded, and that’s gonna make us win, fine. I’ll do it. It doesn’t matter. We need to win.”
Sanchez would absolutely be thrilled to see the Santonio-Braylon connection resume with Gang Green, and it’s certain that he will do whatever it takes to keep the dynamic duo because of his will to win. A prime time move by a signal caller who has the right motives.
Next up for the Jets: go all in for Nnamdi or hold on to Cromartie? Tom Brady is hoping for the latter.
