Steelers trade Holmes to Jets for fifth-round draft pick
 
Quote:

The Pittsburgh Steelers traded wide receiver Santonio Holmes to the New York Jets late Sunday night for a fifth-round draft pick in this month's NFL draft.

Holmes, the MVP of Super Bowl XLIII, is facing a four-game suspension for his actions in regards to the league's substance abuse policy, according to a source. The Steelers have grown troubled with some of Holmes' off-field issues and had no intention of giving their star wide receiver an extension.
A woman filed a lawsuit last month claiming Holmes threw a glass at her in an Orlando nightclub, cutting her above the eye. The woman changed her mind, and the case was reopened by the Orlando police. The woman's lawyer told the Associated Press that a witness has stepped forward taking responsibility for the thrown glass. A police investigation is ongoing.

In 2008, Holmes was cited for marijuana possession in Pennsylvania, and the Steelers deactivated him for the game following the incident. In 2006, he was charged and arrested for domestic violence in Ohio, but the charge was eventually dropped.

Holmes' contract expires after the 2010 season, and he is likely to get a new deal from the Jets at some point.

would love to be a jets fan right now...they just keep on adding...soo many fucking stars in this team....and they got him for a 5th round pick!!!! 5TH ROUND!!!!

can this team get any better?
they have the best oline and the best defense in the league and they make the defense even better(and they are still talking about adding jason taylor)....they have a great trio in the backfield in Washoington, LT, Green...they receiving core insane...edwards, Cotchery, keller and now holmes...and have a decent young qb who can only get better...

they are a legit contender for the superbowl....what a turnaround from 2 years ago...

I hate the Jets, but this was a solid pickup. Just goes to show you how much the Steelers wanted to part ways with this cancer.

They talked about just releasing him. As a Buckeye fan and Holmes being a former Buckeye it was very fun to watch him at Ohio State and become a very good WR in the NFL. Just needs to stay out of trouble off the field.

But great trade for the Jets. You get a very young talented WR, who has had success, and a former SB MVP for a 5th round draft pick. He will be out the first four games though but still a great add.

If Holmes can stay out of trouble off the field then the Jets will be one of best teams in the AFC.

Looks like Mike Wallace has to step in for Holmes. I understand y the move was made, but it was for a 5th rounder, im sure they couldve gotten more.
