Yeah SL is not going to be calling but SD, Cleveland, Miami, Minni, KC, and NE are all teams that could use his ability to improve more then us. None of them have viable #2s and a few of them may be loosing there #1s who if they even have one. Yes though injury, high salary, and attitude may scare anyone away. He is a clutch redzone guy that even a team like Philly may look at.
Financially you may be spot on...but can't see anyone trading for Holmes coming off his particular injury.
Recovery from something like an ACL injury is fairly routine these days...but a LisFranc injury? Holmes may never be the same again. Recovery from Lis Franc injuries or mid-foot ligament sprains/fractures are not very predictable.
The Jets may cut Holmes, but no one is trading for him if they have a medical staff worth a damn.
