What if......Santonio Holmes??
 
I know it would probably never happen but do the Steelers have the ability to say they no longer have interest in signing Santonio Holmes due to the off the field issues and forfeit their rights to his services or are they legally bound to offer him a contract and sign him??

Losing a first round pick before he's ever played could be a huge blow both to the team and to the FO for having drafted him but if parting ways before he becomes more of a problem...........I'd rather it be done sooner rather than later.

Save the cash you'd spend on him and put it in the "Resigning Roethlisberger/Polamalu Fund".

I'm sure the Steelers can forfeit Holme's rights. But, the thing is the Steelers really have Santonio and his agent by the balls when it comes time to sign his contract. The Steelers can put behavior clauses in his contract. Plus with Santonio, being arrested twice the Steelers, might not give him a signing bonus. I say let his agent and Santonio bark at that and let him sit if he doesn't want to sign.

you can in fact due that. a few years ago the vikings almost lost there rights to bryant mckinnie. there is a deadline for draft picks in november that if you arent signed by a certain date the player goes back in the draft for the following year. however i would see the steelers trading his rights first

Tony, with the track record of WR's lately. So, whos to say Chad Jackson won't be arrested at some point in his career. Sure, right now it looks like Chad Jackson would have been the better pick. But, both guys havn't even stepped onto the field yet. I'll wait a little longer in second guessing the Steelers brass for drafting Holmes.

Bill Belichick will be holding his press conference 20 minutes after Brady to give his perspective on all of this.

acatually, i still feel s. holmes was the better pick because i think he is the better player.

im not getting in on this s. holmes witch hunt. and i wanted lendale. i still wouldnt trade holmes for lendale (i may regret this statement) but thats how much faith i have in willie and duce. and faith in the steelers org. straightenning this young kid holmes out.

im not looking for chiorboys to be steelers. i want a baller.
