Holmes traded to jets.
 
No link I just heard it on espn radio that the steelers have traded santonio holmes to the jets for a 5th round pick.. Wasn't he the MVP 2 years ago in the super bowl ? Wow the jets are really looking like a sb contender

i guess they just got tired of his bs. i think he just failed a drug test which is going to give him 4 games off. plus all this drama w/ the night clubs stuff. nyc seems to be the worst place for a guy like holmes.

Santonio Holmes to the New York Jets for a fifth-round pick in this year's draft, sources confirmed Sunday night.

ESPN 1050 in New York first reported the story Sunday night. Holmes was contacted late Sunday and told that he was traded to the Jets, sources said.

Holmes

Holmes had recently been accused of throwing a glass at a woman in a lounge. No charges have been filed against him, and Holmes' lawyer, Adam Swickle, told The Associated Press a male witness has taken responsibility for tossing the glass.

Holmes was entering his fifth season with the Steelers and has 235 catches for 3,835 yards and 20 touchdowns.

Holmes was cited for marijuana possession, a misdemeanor, in Pennsylvania in 2008. The Steelers made Holmes inactive for the game following the incident and he subsequently apologized.

He was arrested on a domestic violence charge in 2006 in Ohio, but that charge was later dropped.

As a player, though, Holmes has the talent to be a No. 1 receiver. He was MVP in Super Bowl XLIII.

John Clayton is a senior writer for ESPN.com. Information from ESPN.com's Tim Graham was used in this report.

This is what ESPN says. I tried to post the link but it didn't allow me.

I think on the field it's a very good pick up for the jets, he's a solid number 2.. I think if somehow he can take care of the off field BS then it's a steal. I think the next wr to be traded will be Marshall. Interesting off season that's for sure

They should have asked us if we wanted him. I'm sure we'd of given our 4th this year and next years 5th.

Since we can't get to the Super Bowl we need players who have been there to tell our players and fans all about it. We could market our Super Bowl tandem of McNabb & Holmes...lol.

Yeah, I think this is a message to Ben.

Classic buying low scenario. Who else do they have though? Hines Ward is getting up there in years, and Limas Sweed hasn't done a thing. Maybe they're really high on Mike Wallace? Holmes was a 25th overall pick a few years ago, is a legit deep threat, and was Super Bowl MVP just a season ago. A 5th rounder to me seems like they're dumping a bad apple for whatever they can asap.

Come on Skinny, you cant talk trash on our organization every time we make a move. If McNabb makes it to the PB and we are in the playoffs you won't be talking trash.

Interesting move by the Jets. I still think the Jets will take a WR relatively high in the draft because looking at that roster it's the one weak spot.

Like someone else said I think the Jets are the primary SB contender from the AFC. That defense will be unbelievable we the return of injured guys and addition of Cromartie. The offense can only get better too.

So happy watching people from Pittsburgh freak out. Yeah I know the Redskins and Steelers aren't rivals and it wouldn't be close the last few years if they were but there is a certain hockey team that I love to hate.
