07:25 AM ET 12.19 | Credit Santonio Holmes for his loyalty, even when it costs him. [Holmes] wants to be a Jet so badly next year that he's willing to take a pay cut -- again. Holmes, who reduced his salary to $7.5 million before the 2013 season, said he'd reduce his salary for a second consecutive offseason if the team approached him. "Anything for the team," Holmes said. "Anything for the team." Would it matter how much of a pay cut the team asked for? "Probably not," said Holmes. "I mean with the production comes big pay so do your job." Holmes' 2013 season has been disappointing. He recovered from last season's Lisfranc injury in time to start the year, but hasn't lived up to expectations since then. In nine games this year, Holmes has caught 18 passes for 395 yards and a touchdown.

Time to throwaway the 'key.'

Either way he would be taking a discount. He obviously saw the writing on the wall and realized that the Jets would've cut him anyways

Anything for a job, you mean.

When your that much over paid, a pay cut is a good plan when the reaper comes around
