I think the Jets roll with him in 2013 hoping he performs how they thought he would and also so they don't create a depth problem worse then they had in 2012. If they saved $8 million this year by cutting him then I could see them doing that b/c they could use that $8 million to replace him but with only saving $1.25 million it's not worth it. In 2014 you can cut him and save $8.25 million and I think that is what the Jets will do.
It not just about this years cap hit. He is a bad teammate and will continue to be a problem in the locker room, especially if the Jets are as bad as we expect them to be.
Going into 2013 with Edwards, Kerley, Hill, a cheap FA, and a rookie is fine by me. They don't need Holmes and most certainly don't need the baggage that comes with him.
