Santonio Holmes Back at Practice Today for the New York Jets

OK, maybe THIS is why Braylon Edwards was released earlier today. The reports are that Braylon will not be resigned after week one, maybe we have found the reason.

Guess who was practicing today? Santonio Holmes, for the first time this preseason, was in pads, and working out with his team today. The reports are unclear as to how much he participated in today’s practice, but he did stretch with the team, and lead his wide receivers in positional drills.

What a great sign for the New York Jets, who need all the help they can get at the skilled positions on offense. There were a lot of members of the fan base this morning that were very confused about why the Jets would release veteran wideout Braylon Edwards.

If Santonio is ready to go sooner rather than later, we have our reason. Holmes is just the guy that is needed to lead this younger group of wide receivers. Tone Time may be approaching faster than any one of us expected.
