NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport was told the Jets will monitor Holmes and his surgically repaired foot, which knocked him out of 12 games last season and left the Jets devoid of difference-makers. He remains the team's best pass-catcher, but his motivation to return the field has been questioned this offseason.
In an ideal world, Gang Green would set up Smith with a strong ground game and a handful of reliable options in the passing attack. That's not the case in New York, where the Jets might have the AFC's least talented offensive roster on this side of Oakland. Holmes isn't the player he once was, but Rex Ryan needs him on the field Sunday to give Revis something to take seriously.
