Brian Costello of the New York Post caught up with former Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes who continues to wait for a team to sign him.
Holmes, who was released by the Jets in March after four seasons, has not been picked up by another team. The 30-year-old wide receiver has been training in Florida since the Jets cut him. Holmes’ camp feels a receiver-needy team will sign him during training camp.
“He’ll definitely be on a team,” said Tom Shaw, Holmes’ personal trainer. “Just like [free agent linebacker] James Harrison will be on a team. As long as teams don’t think he’ll be a distraction, he’s going to get picked up.”
Holmes is expected to get signed once a team loses a big-name receiver to an injury, per Costello.
Holmes is one of the top free agents — and clearly the top wide receiver — left on the market. The feeling around the league is Holmes will be signed by one of the first teams to lose a wide receiver to injury.
Holmes needs to prove that he can play at a high level and stay healthy.
