Jets make offer to Santonio Holmes

FROM: REDZONE

Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger reports that the Jets have extended an offer to prize free agent wide receiver Santonio Holmes.

Terms of the offer were not immediately available. The timing is interesting, as news came soon after receiver Santana Moss reportedly agreed to a 3-year, $15 million deal with the Redskins, per ESPN. Washington was expected to be one of the teams in hot pursuit of Holmes, with the potential to price other teams out.

The Jets' strategy is to concentrate on their own free agents. Word earlier in the day was that the Jets had already been in contact with wide receiver Braylon Edwards, cornerback Antonio Cromartie, and right tackle Wayne Hunter. Interest in Edwards may wane if Holmes bites at the Jets' offer.
