Holmes is radioactive Dan Leberfeld
Santonio Holmes is not going to change.
That is pretty clear.
He’s radioactive. There is no way around that.
“A disgusted Santonio Holmes, who missed a handful of voluntary practice sessions while out of the country on a USO-sponsored trip to a U.S. Air Force base in Germany, pulled himself out of practice Thursday because he felt he was unfairly overworked by coaches,” wrote ESPN’s Rich Cimini.
“The New York Jets’ top wide receiver staged a mini-meltdown near the end of the two-hour workout, limping off the field and tossing his helmet. He exchanged words with receivers coach Sanjay Lal, also drawing immediate attention from the trainer.”
With $24.5 million guaranteed to Holmes, the Jets have lost control of this player. That is quite obvious.
If the Jets release him, there will be a conga line in the locker room. He’s a strain on his teammates.
