Jets Release WR Santonio Holmes

NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Jets have parted ways with wide receiver Santonio Holmes, cutting the talented but injury-plagued playmaker after four seasons.

The move Monday, which had been expected, saves the Jets $8.25 million, which Holmes was due to make as his base salary this season. He was scheduled to have a $10.75 million cap number, a lofty total for a one-time Super Bowl MVP who has struggled with injuries and inconsistency the last two seasons.

Holmes, who turned 30 last Monday, had 23 catches for 456 yards and a touchdown in 11 games last season. He missed five games midway through the season with a hamstring injury. Holmes played in just four games in 2012 and was sidelined for several months after a career-threatening foot injury.
