Look at him everyone, there he is. Captain Santonio Holmes. A former Super Bowl MVP that has become the biggest grump on the Jets by a wide margin. He got his money, and now all he looks out for is himself. It seems as if this was a change in attitude from 2010-2011, but if you look at his checkered past, the Jets could, and should, have really seen this coming.
A player’s character is everything, and when you take a look at Santonio’s background, you can tell he has character flaws.
Santonio Holmes was arrested twice in 2006, once for disorderly conduct(charges dropped), and once for domestic violence and assault. Again the charges were dropped eventually, although the prosecutors wanted to proceeed without a complaining witness.
In 2008, Holmes was again arrested, this time for possession of marijuana, causing Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin to bench Holmes for one game.
By now it’s pretty obvious that Santonio Holmes has no ability to consistently behave himself off the field.
In 2010, a woman sued Holmes over an incident at a nightclub in Orlando, Florida, when she alleged that Holmes threw a glass at her. After the incident, someone commented on the incident via Twitter, and Holmes responded by saying “kill urself”, and then making a reference to marijuana. Santonio claimed his account was hacked, and it wasn’t him commenting.
