It's an obvious target, the Jets need to do their due diligence up and down the roster, and it would be foolish for Holmes to play hardball.
The biggest difference was that Vick didnt have the amount of guaranteed salary that Holmes has. The Vick deal was easy because of that. Only around 4 million of Holmes salary this year isnt guaranteed, so the wiggle room is less and less motivation for Holmes to agree. Holmes could play hardball and just tell the Jets to cut him, and collect the 7 million dollars and go play elsewhere.
