Holmes: We need "a few" O-linemen
Forget the pass rush.
Santonio Holmes thinks the Jets need to think offense first during Thursday's draft.
Following a workout with his trainer near Orlando, the Jets wide receiver gave an interview to Disney about the Jets' draft needs.
"We're looking for a few offensive linemen, some guys that are ready to come in and play right away," he said at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, where he trains. "We need a few more receivers to give Mark (Sanchez) more weapons to throw the ball to. And, hopefully, our defense comes around this year.
Holmes was at the center of much of the Jets locker room issues last season, having called out Sanchez and the offensive linemen for their inconsistent play.
"Guys are ready to go, man," he said in the brief interview. "We're looking forward to a big season this year and, hopefully, making it to the playoffs, finishing off with the right thing, which is holding that trophy."
