Santonio Holmes: Confrontation With Mark Sanchez Revealed

The plot thickens when it comes to Santonio Holmes and the New York Jets. ESPN New York is reporting that Holmes and Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez clashed in the week prior to the Week 17 game against the Miam Dolphins, which turned into a season-ending loss.

Rich Cimini of ESPN wrote that a source told him he felt the situation was "going to explode."

It did, of course. Holmes, frustrated by not catching a pass, had a shouting match in the huddle with a teammate near the end of the game and would up benched. Earlier today a player referred to him as a "cancer," and Jets running back LaDainin Tomlinson was also highly critical of Holmes.

Jets coach Rex Ryan said today that he thought Holmes would be back with the team next season, but that if he is he will not be a captain. ""We're not going to have those anymore. We built a team and I think that pulls away from the team a little bit," Ryan said.
