08:39 AM ET 04.10 | Santonio Holmes is taking a wait-and-see approach regarding his future with the Jets. "It's out of my hands," Holmes said this afternoon at a sports memorabilia show in New Jersey. "I'm a free agent this year. Whatever my agent brings to the table -- the best deal for me -- I'm pretty sure that's where we'll end up. I would love (to play for the Jets). But whatever happens, happens. I don't know. I've never been in this situation before. I really don't know how to explain it to anybody. Whatever happens I'm happy to be wherever I end up at." Holmes, who had a penchant for late-game heroics in his first season with the Jets, stopped short of saying that he preferred playing for Gang Green if all things were equal.

He was a big part of the Jets' season. If he doesn't come back, Sanchez will have difficulty.

Oh, that Holmes. I was thinking of the film star.

52 catches for 746 yards all the while missing four games. If it would have been a full season, he would have gained a 1,000 yards receiving. Sanchez has to want this guy back. Braylon "Stonehands" Edwards can't be your number one receiver if you want to be a serious contender.

Jets made it to the AFC championship before he came to the team and duplicated the feat upon his arrival. His contributions have been marginal.

The AIDS got him... Too bad because he was indeed a deep threat.

Holmes is one failed drug test away from a years suspension.. Wake & Bake... Tone

the Jets tendered him an offer, so anyone who signs him will have to give up a high draft pick, won't be going anywhere for another year, if the CBA stays in place

There ya go. but he has refused to sign it. We shall see.

Not a Jets fan, read everyone's point..I like Holmes but I don't think he's a big enough key for the Jets to command a huge contract. We'll see how theytruly feel if they draft more than one WR in the draft.

They won't need him next year, they'll have Randy Moss........

Wait so he's going to wait it out, check out the offers he gets, then go with the best one? I've never heard of a free agent doing that. Thanks T&R.
