Holmes likely will wait until after draft to pick next team


Of all the receivers available in 2014, only one owns a Super Bowl MVP trophy.  And he’s still not employed.

Per a league source, receiver Santonio Holmes likely will wait until after the draft to pick his next team.  With a deep class of receivers in the draft, it makes sense to see where the needs are after needs are addressed via the seven-round selection process.

A first-round pick of the Steelers in 2006, Holmes was traded by Pittsburgh little more than a year after making a catch for the ages to deliver a victory in Super Bowl XLIII — and in the aftermath of a four-game suspension for violation of the substance-abuse policy.

Holmes spent four years with the Jets, but had lackluster numbers amid injury issues and attitude concerns.
