The Jets No. 1 priority heading into the NFL’s free agency period was to re-sign wide receiver Santonio Holmes. Though the Washington Redskins were reportedly ready to throw big money at Holmes, the Jets have inked him to a new deal, reportedly worth $50 million over five years, with $24 million guaranteed.
Now the Jets can turn their attention to the cornerback position, where priority No. 2 is re-signing Antonio Cromartie. There are also reports that say the Jets will reach out to free agent Nnamdi Asomugha who is considered to be the second best cornerback in the league, right behind New York’s Darrelle Revis.
The Jets also have Brad Smith, Braylon Edwards, and 13 others who are free agents. Signing Holmes, though, was their top priority.
