The wide-receiver dominos are beginning to fall -- Santonio Holmes agreed to terms on a five-year deal with the Jets, according to multiple reports.

Holmes was considered one of the priority for this offseason for the Jets, especially given that the Washington Redskins were rumored to be pursuing him as well.

However the Redskins made their own noise over the past two days in terms of wideouts, re-signing incumbent No. 1 Santana Moss and then inking Donte Stallworth on Wednesday.

Holmes was a critical addition to the Jets in 2010 and despite missing several games because of suspension, still posted big numbers.

The Jets decision to re-up on Holmes contract means it's unlikely that they'll re-sign Braylon Edwards. It also means that we could see a big run on free-agent wideouts in the near future as other free agents now see what the market Bears out and beginning heavier negotiations with other teams.

Rape (Roethlsiberger) is a lot different than consensual sex with someone who is of legal age.

Damn I hope that the Jets are able to resign "BE" to a deal,but from what I've heard....the Jets are trying to position themselves for the "Namdi Sweepstakes". It's going to take a whole lot of money to get Namdi and if so, I'm quite sure that there won't be enough money for "BE" to accept,but you never know........I guess that we'll have to see!

Jets made a good move here. In my opinion its all up to Mark Sanchez now.  Sanchez needs to step up and be more consistant week to week. If Sanchez can do that , then the Jets will do great this season.
