We always try to keep you as up to date as possible when it comes to former Ohio State stars in the NFL, and one of the most well-known is wide receiver Santonio Holmes, who recently found himself a place to play again. After some waiting this offseason, Holmes has signed with the Chicago Bears, according to a report from the Dispatch.
Former Ohio State receiver Santonio Holmes signed a one-year contract with the Chicago Bears.
The eight-year veteran joins an offense still in search of a productive third receiver after Marquess Wilson suffered a broken right collarbone on Aug. 4.
Holmes, drafted 25th overall by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2006, has 381 catches, 5,963 yards and 36 touchdown in his career. But he totaled only 43 catches and two touchdowns over the past two seasons with the New York Jets, as foot and hamstring injuries cost him 17 games.
His tenure with New York also was characterized by locker-room discord, and the Jets released Holmes in March as part of a salary-cap purge.
Hopefully by now, Holmes has gotten his act together and can get his career back on track with the talent that is there in Chicago.
What do you think? Was this a good move for Holmes?
