Jets release WR Santonio Holmes after four years in New York

The New York Jets announced Monday that they will release Santonio Holmes @ToneTime10 saving the team more than eight million on the 2014 salary cap. The 30 year old receiver has played only one full season for the Jets and has seen his numbers steadily decline since joining the team.

Fantasy Analysis:

Considering how much the Jets were paying for Holmes and how little production they were getting, this move surprises no one. Between injuries and inconsistent quarterback play, Holmes never lived up to the five year 45 million dollar contract he signed after being traded by the Steelers. His best season with the team was 2010 when he caught 52 balls for 746 yards.

With the many wide receiver vacancies in the NFL, Holmes will likely find a home for a one or two year deal in 2014, assuming he is willing to play for a much less money.

Considering the lack of talent the Jets have at receiver, expect them to target one (or more) of the big names in the upcoming draft.
