Jets Agree to Five-Year Deal With Santonio Holmes

The Jets took care of their top priority today, agreeing to a five-year deal with Santonio Holmes worth $50 million, with $24 million guaranteed. However, the size of that deal might mean the Jets won't be able to afford Braylon Edwards, who is also a free agent. Still, once the Holmes deal is officially signed on Friday, the Jets will have locked up a dynamic receiver for Mark Sanchez, even if it means looking for a cheaper alternative to replace Edwards.  (Sanchez admitted yesterday it was "almost unrealistic to have that kind of a receiving corps again.") Could that alternative be Randy Moss? It might very well be.
