Ex-Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes, a free agent who is (apparently desperately) looking for a team, recently did an interview with Sports Illustrated in which he actually said the following: "It baffles me a little, to know that I'm not a part of any organization. I say that because the gift of playing, an opportunity to be a figure in the National Football League, I enjoyed my time.
And the curse of having one injury in my entire career, that people are now looking at me as if Santonio Holmes is not the guy anymore. Look, no player in the twilight of his career wants to admit he has reached the end.
I think the opportunity just has to come, in a better situation for me. All of these guys -- whether you like their personalties or not -- got to this point in football due to tons of pride and hard work.
None of them landed in the NFL by believing in themselves.
Raised in a single-parent household in a town so economically distressed that it was nicknamed "Muck City," Holmes hunted rabbits for food and, at one point, sold drugs to earn extra cash.
In track, his team won the state title during his junior year, and he was the member of a 4x400 meter relay team that won two state titles, and recorded a personal-best time of 49.85 seconds in the 400 meters.
It likely means WR Marquess Wilson (collarbone) will be activated from I. And Chris Williams has punt-return duties locked up, leaving Holmes useless as a receiver who doesn't play special teams. He was on the streets until mid-August before the Bears scooped him up.
The 30 year old caught eight passes for 67 yards across nine games as the Bears' seldom-used No.
He was a letterman in football, basketball, and track.
In football, he helped lead his team to two state titles and a 12-1 record as a senior.Santonio Holmes's Girlfriend - Makkelijk Contact Maken | Verwante zoekopdrachten voor Who is santonio holmes dating Vergelijk Datingsites - Vergelijk de online datingsites.
