Listening to Santonio Holmes' agent, Joel Segal, one wonders what the chances are that the Redskins can pry the talented wideout away from the Jets.
“Santonio is a huge fan of Rex Ryan,” Segal said. “He likes the system, likes the quarterbacks. I think there’s a lot to be said for the Jets’ chances.”
If Holmes left the Jets for Washington, not only would he be leaving a coach he likes to go play for a coach with a very different style; he also would have to learn a new system. He also would be leaving a team with a young, established quarterback to play for a team, that doesn’t know who its starting quarterback is.
If Holmes bolts for Washington, his draft stock would be up in the air until the Redskins settled on a QB. Holmes could be productive in Kyle Shanahan's offense, but it's still a new offense.
