A friend of mine dropped this on me at our softball game today. He played a few years at Pitt as a tight-end and is still a good friend of 49ers LB Scoot McKillop (ex: Pitt star) Word is (from inside the NFL) Holmes is scheduled to be RELEASED by the end of the week. I heard the word "RELEASED" and immediately called bull$hit. I can see trading him but not releasing him. Hope it isnt true, but i think they are gonna set an example and Holmes will be the fall guy. If they dont deal/release him, and this suspension IS true, i can see the team adding more time to his suspension (2-4 extra games). This would let them see 2 things: How he reacts to this type of adversity and How they can fare with out him. It will also give them leverage come contract time.

Again this is just some word of mouth information... just thought i'd share.

They wouldnt let go of him unless they got value. But, I do take in to consideration this is a rumor.

Not surprised besides only getting a 5th round pick for him.

UPDATE: Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post reports that the Jets gave up a fifth-round draft pick for Holmes, who was the MVP of Super Bowl XLIII. A fifth-round draft pick for a former Super Bowl MVP.

If this is true, I am beyond pissed off...Im about to throw my computer through the wall...there is absoulteyl no way you make that trade...If this is true, I have lost a TON of respect for the steelers front office....

If its true, we just traded Santonio Holmes for Frank Summers...this is absolutely F*CKING unbelievable!!!!

The fact that they would accept a 5th round pick means that they were glad to get ANYTHING for him at all. Chances are that if the Jets balked at the 5th round pick the Steelers probably would have released him outright. There is more to this than we know about people. I have read that Santonio wanted top money in his contract negotiations and apparently the Steelers just wanted rid of him. That's too bad because I did like him except for his love of marijuana. Guess that just made a wide receiver a higher priority. I think the Steelers like that guy from the Citadel, Andre Roberts who is a 3rd or 4th round pick.

Which they can swap with someone for a 3rd?

Also, what could be more laughable is you thinking were going after earl thomas.

ill take bets that this 5th round pick doesnt make the team.

just trade away woodley, harrison, ben and mendenhall and draft iupati, mays, and tebow so i can just disaffiliate with the team and route for the ****ing lions

I hope this is Bull Sh*t, A 5th rounder. I hope they got a 2nd or 3rd rounder for him.I knew he'd be traded but not give him away for a 5th. Total BS if this is true.

Just heard this on CBS Sportsline. A 5th rd pick? WOW!!! Like BG4vr said, we're lucky to get anything from him considering we would've released him.

I understand Mike Wallace was a great surprise and Holmes may not have resigned, but a 5th round is a joke. I wouldn't have minded if they traded Holmes, but they gave his *** away.

I cannot even explain to you how disgusted I am....I think I may throw up...I just called my own father, venting, and yelling words that he's probably never heard...like I have said before, Ive lost respect for this organization and after this, watching the draft seems pointless because now I know for sure that this team will disappoint me...

unbelievable....

I sure as hell hope so...It would definitely make me feel a little bit better if we could land him...He would look good as hell in a steelers uni...

On another note, the Jets are looking to be scary good...Adding Cromartie, Tomlinson, and Holmes, along with Revis, that offensive line, Braylon, Mark Sanchez getting some more experience etc....damn...preseason favorites?

Normally I would just merge the other thread into this one, however due to the number of posts in that one and the confirmed trade rumor now, along with the interest of continuity and ease of finding the latest information.. I'm redirecting all the traffic to the other thread.
