Holmes says he's happy with Jets, despite few catches
Santonio Holmes denied a repot that he is unhappy with his role in the New York Jets' offense, despite just 22 catches thus far this season.
“Never heard that one. Next question,” Holmes told the New York Daily News, in reference to a report from ProFootballTalk of his dissatisfaction. “I didn’t talk to anybody about it. Never heard about it.”
Holmes came to the Jets, armed with a five-year $45 million contract, but his production thus far has been sporadic. Holmes, however, indicated that his focus is on the Jets' current two-game winning streak, which has New York at 4-3 and back in the thick of the AFC East race.
The Jets face fellow division rival Buffalo on Sunday in a battle of two of the AFC East contenders.
One AFC scout observed that Holmes hasn't lost anything, it's just that the Jets haven't funneled the football his way often enough, saying "He’s getting open. He’s the same player he’s always been. He’s a game changer. But they’re not feeding him.”
