Jets likely to release Santonio Holmes

It looks like Santonio Holmes is on his way to becoming a former New York Jet.

Per a report from Pro Football Talk, the Jets appear likely to cut Holmes at some point in the near future, likely before the new league year begins on March 11.

Holmes is scheduled to earn an $8.25 million base salary in 2014, which probably plays a big role in this decision.
