Santonio Holmes Officially Retiring As Member Of Steelers

Ian Rapoport reports that veteran WR Santonio Holmes will officially retire as a member of the Steelers on Tuesday.

Holmes has been out of the NFL for the past three seasons, so it’s not surprising to see him officially walk away from the game.

The last reported interest regarding Holmes came in 2015 when he worked out for the Bengals.

Holmes, 33, is a former first-round pick of the Steelers back in 2006. He spent four years in Pittsburgh before signing on with the Jets in 2010.

The Jets cut Holmes loose after four seasons and he had a brief stint with the Bears during the 2014 season.

For his career, Holmes caught 389 passes for 6,030 yards and 36 touchdowns over the course of 112 games. He helped the Steelers win a Super Bowl in 2008 and was named MVP of the game after making an incredible catch in the back of the end zone.
