Santonio Holmes is willing to accept a pay cut for the second year to remain with the New York Jets.
"Anything for the team," Holmes said Wednesday, via the New York Daily News. "Anything for the team."
Asked if it would matter how much his salary was reduced, Holmes replied, "Probably not. I mean with the production comes big pay so do your job.
That seems to be an acknowledgment that Holmes has underperformed since signing a five-year, $45 million contract four years ago.
Set to count $10.75 million against the 2014 salary cap, there's no way Holmes will return at that price tag. In fact, it's hard to envision a scenario in which the Jets welcome him back at any salary.

How about you return the money you stole from the Jets this season Santonio? No? Yeah, that's what I thought. He made a lot of money off of that Super Bowl catch back with the Steelers but the rest of his careers has been a series of disappointments.
