New York Jets To Owe Santonio Holmes $7.5 Million Dollars in 2013

New York Jets fans better warm up to the idea of having Santonio Holmes around for a while.

According to reports, Holmes future with the team just became much more stable because as of Wednesday morning, he's guaranteed $7.5 million of his 2013 salary.

Holmes has been a point of contention among the Jets faithful, many whom are sick of the attitude his brings to the field. The star wideout was benched in the final minutes of the Week 17 game against the Dolphins after constantly complaining in the huddle.

With this money now becoming guaranteed, it's a certainty Holmes will be around in 2012. With all of the issues New York had down the stretch in 2011, this will be a huge story to keep an eye on going forward.

Holmes is certainly the Jets most talented receiver, but also their most volatile. With Plaxico Burress most likely gone, the ex-Steeler becomes even more important next year.

New York will need him to be focused and driven this time around after signing him to a five-year, $45 million contract in the 2011 off-season.
