Two former Jets added to PFT’s free agent rankings

Getty Images

A Super Bowl MVP and a quarterback who’s won four postseason games are the newest additions to PFT’s free agent rankings.

In fact, these two ex-Jets — wide receiver Santonio Holmes (No. 95) and quarterback Mark Sanchez (No. 109) — may now rank as the best players available at their positions. However, Holmes’ name hasn’t appeared to create much of a buzz since his release on March 10. And time well tell on the demand for Sanchez.

It also remains to be seen what sort of roles both players will be asked to play next season. Can either garner a feature role in an offense in 2014? If nothing else, both are likely to be on rosters.

For now, though, they are two of the more interesting names on the list of unsigned players.

    I’d really like to see a fresh list created for purposes of at least ranking and covering anybody that deserves an acknowledgment of rank. The PFT Hot 100 can still stay intact in the background, but it would be nice to get some analysis and coverage on everybody that is available that is noteworthy to any extent. There’s a good handful of players that should get some mentions and discussions. I suggested a 150 list when the 100 list came out, but even an initial list of 125 would have gone a long way towards shoring up the original list.

    Holmes back to the Steelers !

    Good luck fellas.

    Pasties will sign them.

    Who ever signs the dirty should have a game where they hand out head bands. Honestly, how many grown men would actually wear one in public?

    Santonio back to the Steelers?

    Holmes should be lobbying Cam Newton and the Panthers right now ; they could certainly use him if he’s healthy.

    I’m having a hard time accepting the Vick signing.

    Wasn’t Freeman 108 or 109?

    Holmes is a cancer that the Steelers once had. He’ll NEVER be considered to rejoin that team.

    He’s a perfect fit for the Raidas where all the overpaid, inflated ego, on-the-downslope-of-their-career, players go.

    I know Holmes isn’t the quietest receiver in the league trouble wise, but I think It would be a great idea for Doug Whaley to at least bring him into 1 Bills drive and give him a look over or two.
    Not only is he a big receiver with decent skills, he is a major red-zone threat, which is needed badly in Buffalo. The only red-zone threat the team currently employs is TE Scott Chandler, other than him the team comes up short. The receivers are a strong group, but without that red-zone threat it is a pain.
    Stevie Johnson- Solid #2 Receiver. One of the best route runners in the entire league(Ask Revis) and for the most part has solid hands. He is average with his speed.
    Robert Woods- #2 Receiver. Excellent hands, good with routes and has above average speed.
    Marquise Goodwin- Slot Receiver. Very good hands, a little shaky with the route running, but has blazing speed(Possibly the fastest receiver in the league)
    T.J. Graham- Backup. Speedy, good hands, decent route running. Needs to improve.
    Marcus Easley- Solid Backup. Awesome special teamer.
    Other receivers- Ramses Barden, Kevin Elliott, Brandon Kaufman, Chris Hogan and Chris Summers.
    Give Holmes a look Whaley!

    EJ. The man can’t even run. Lol

    Butt Fumble or dope head. Take your pick.

  14. sportsfan18 says: Mar 22, 2014 6:56 PM

    I hope Mark S. saved some of his money because I don’t think he’ll have a lot of NFL paychecks going forward…

    And those he does collect won’t be for what he was used to seeing…

    The Rams would love to get Sanchez, but the cost is way too high. With second string QBs getting up to 4 million, Rams will move on. If he could/ would take much less, he could be a Ram. Bradford will be injured. Decent team. His former OC is there. Connect the dots. If he takes a one year deal for the minimum, done.

    I’m sure I’m in the minority(of one maybe?), But I think a change of scenery and new coaching will make Sanchez a decent option for a team looking to groom their franchise QB without having to throw them to the wolves right off the bat. Think the Jets dysfunction snowballed out of control for Sanchez and his crappy play became a self fulfilling prophecy. Doubt he is capable of being a long term answer as a franchise QB though. More of Trent Dilfer than a Tom Brady

    Rexy is already missing the cute pitter-patter of their feet around the locker room. You all have no idea how painful it is for him to see them go.

    Steelers won’t take Holmes back. He misbehaved twice.

  19. jmblosser82 says: Mar 22, 2014 8:50 PM

    I can see Sanchez thriving somewhere else. He made few mistakes his first 2 years when he had decent weapons and a great defense, 2 straight AFC title games losses tho. A 2 mil/year 2-3 year deal would be a good gamble on him.

    Holmes is about done. He missed how many games due to injury the last 2-3 years? Anything more then a 1 year vet min prove it deal is too much.

    The Sanchize is on his way to white pants wearin’, butt fumblin’, sportin’ girl headbands and eatin’ Hot Dogs for another lucky Team. Yahoo! To his future fans…

  21. don2074978 says: Mar 22, 2014 9:12 PM

    Agreed… a fresh list would be best with the old list linked as an archive.

    You’re ignorance is clear. Al Davis is dead in case you forgot and Reggie doesnt over pay anyone Einstein..

    I really hope Sanchez gets picked up somewhere. I mean yeah, he’s kind of an easy target with the butt fumble and the head bands. But I never thought he was as bad as he was made out to be. His last season as a starter was terrible… but I think a lot of that was more the dysfunction of the Jets than him. He’s good, not great and I think he can be an option for a team with a decent roster and no QB (Browns maybe?) where they play Sanchez for a few years and groom their franchise guy. I don’t see any Lucks, Wilsons, or Griffins that are going to be able to start day one entering this draft or currently playing at the college level. Go back to the old way and let the rookie QB sit a few years.

    Don’t forget about Ed Reed.
