Santonio Holmes to Jets!

Mike T. does it again.

The Jets have worked out a deal with Pittsburgh.WR Santonio Holmes will come to the Jets in exchange for our 5th-round pick in this year's draft.

There is also a rumor circulating regarding Leon Washington, citing that he will also be going to the Steelers in addition to the 5th-round pick. It should be noted that this is FALSE, as Leon has not signed his tender yet. BUT, the two teams could have worked out a "future arrangement," in which Leon would go to Pittsburgh after signing his tender. So technically, he could still be part of the deal, only time will tell. Remember, with Willie Parker gone, Pitt is in need of a RB. While it is currently impossible with Leon's tender still unsigned, it could come to fruition in the future. We'll keep you posted.

It should be noted that Holmes recently violated the Substance-Abuse policy again, and will most likely only be eligible to play in 12 games this year. He has a history of marijuana use.
