Steelers trade Holmes to Jets for fifth-round draft pick

By Jason La Canfora | NFL Network

The Pittsburgh Steelers traded wide receiver Santonio Holmes to the New York Jets late Sunday night for a fifth-round draft pick in this month's NFL draft.

Holmes, the MVP of Super Bowl XLIII, is facing a four-game suspension for his actions in regards to the league's substance abuse policy, according to a source. The Steelers have grown troubled with some of Holmes' off-field issues and had no intention of giving their star wide receiver an extension.

A woman filed a lawsuit last month claiming Holmes threw a glass at her in an Orlando nightclub, cutting her above the eye. The woman changed her mind, and the case was reopened by the Orlando police. The woman's lawyer told the Associated Press that a witness has stepped forward taking responsibility for the thrown glass. A police investigation is ongoing.

In 2008, Holmes was cited for marijuana possession in Pennsylvania, and the Steelers deactivated him for the game following the incident. In 2006, he was charged and arrested for domestic violence in Ohio, but the charge was eventually dropped.

Holmes' contract expires after the 2010 season, and he is likely to get a new deal from the Jets at some point.

Holmes and his agent, Joel Segal, were not granted permission to talk to other teams, and thus did not begin any talks on an extension with the Steelers, according to league sources. They only found out about the trade late Sunday night.

Some league executives who were reached Sunday night said that despite their concerns with Holmes' behavior, it was surprising the Steelers did not get at least a third-round pick in return, with teams like Washington, Miami, Tampa Bay and Carolina among those in need of a wide receiver.

The Jets have been one of the most active teams in the league this offseason. They traded for CB Antonio Cromartie, and signed RB LaDainian Tomlinson in free agency. They also brought in DE Jason Taylor for a two-day visit last week, but no deal was consummated.

Re: Steelers trade Holmes to Jets for fifth-round draft pick

Wow. So Is Rex Ryan sitting on ppl and forcein them to make trades that work in their favor? like come on a 5th! The Steelers Got Robbed!!!!
Holmes is a loud quiet production WR, He''s loud from all the stuff he does but quietly produces. I for 1 Live in NY and He might not have to worry about gettin caught with the UooK depending on how well he plays and if he wants to violate an throw another bottle in the club he'll get hit wit 1 back, Jets are lookin like the team we need to wax in FEB. That said My Dad is a Jet Fan I'd Love nothing more then to Bust the Jets Ass in the Super Bowl Next season

Steelers upset with ihs "off field" issues. Does this mean "Big Rappist" Ben is on the way out too or is it just the Black guys who have to be good off field

Ben has been charged twice in a year with this type of misconduct. No matter how much he pays to silence the victims it is a black eye for the league and the steelers
