Chiefs Free Agent Watch 2014: Santonio Holmes to Fill Need in Kansas City?


Things are heating up in the NFL rumor mill and this is getting fun. Chiefs fans say there’s a hole at wide receiver. Could nine-year veteran receiver Santonio Holmes make an impact in Kansas City in head coach Andy Reid’s system? Though Holmes has played the last four years under Rex Ryan with the New York Jets, it looks like his time is limited in the Big Apple.

Holmes has had a rough go of it in New York, being brought in to be the top receiving target for maligned quarterback Mark Sanchez and then “the golden child” Geno Smith last season. However, Holmes never really lived up to that expectation, never having better than a 700-yard, six-touchdown season, which he achieved in 2010, his first year with the Jets.

Holmes is due a roster bonus of $1 million on March 13 and then is scheduled to make $8.25 million this year with the Jets. Based on his contribution to the team, you can see why Woody Johnson and the crew in New York are ready to cut ties with the once-speedy receiver.
