Default Jets trade for Santonio Holmes

Info is just coming out.....Sounds like just a 5th round pick was given to the steelers.

Steelers ship Santonio to the Jets

Posted by Mike Florio on April 11, 2010 11:24 PM ET
What a strange weekend it has been for Santonio Holmes.

Yesterday, we reported that Holmes is facing a four-game suspension under the substance abuse policy. Tonight, we're told that the Steelers have traded Holmes to the New York Jets.

It's the second time in less than a year that the Jets have swung a deal for a former first-round receiver. Last October, they acquired Braylon Edwards from the Browns.

Like Holmes, Edwards also is facing a likely suspension after pleading no contest to an assault that occurred only days before he was traded. Also, both players are signed through 2010.

Suddenly, HBO's Hard Knocks got a lot more interesting.

UPDATE: Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post reports that the Jets gave up a fifth-round draft pick for Holmes, who was the MVP of Super Bowl XLIII. A fifth-round draft pick for a former Super Bowl MVP

A first round pick who had a solid season and was a superbowl MVP was traded for a 5th rounder?

I think you're right! And this beautiful sunset over the Puget Sound, Josh was somehow involved there too, right?


Oh, and just a 5th rounder?

This is all Ben's fault, the Steelers want to seem no nonsense so they trade Santonio, but Ben's issues are driving this.

Its all a racist plot to get rid of the talented black brother and keep the headcase white quarterback because he happens to be the face of the franchise...

Don't be surprised to see Big Ben not far behind him see even the Rooneys are looking to Josh for leadership in the value of having a lunch pail lookerroom

Santonio Holmes must be an even bigger turd than we realize for him to be shipped off for a 5th round draft pick.

26 year old WRs with a Super Bowl MVP, coming off a 79 catch 1248 yard and 5 TD season don't get traded for 5th round picks unless they are giant turds....even if they are facing a 4 game suspension.

Yes but if the chances of someone giving up a 1st for a talented but wayward WR were 10%, they are now <1%...
