Santonio Holmes to the Jets
So, following Santonio Holmes' recent character issues, which have resulted in a 4 game suspension, he was traded to the Jets for a fifth round pick. Apparently, this was NOT some secret meeting between the Jets and Steelers that escalated quickly. According to PFT, every team in the league was contacted and the Steelers were about to cut him. This brings me to my point: Santonio Holmes is coming off of a 79 catch 1,250 yard season, and the Bears receivers were very unimpressive last year. How is it that the Bears did not give up their 5th round pick for Santonio Holmes? The chances of landing that good of a player in the 5th round are slim to none. Not to mention, they'd have to develop. Santonio is young and fully developed. It really doesn't make sense to me.
