I don't understand.
Holmes was coming off a suspension and would only be playing something like 12 games that year and his contract was up.

Steelers dealt a guy with multiple substance abuse violations and some domestic violence issues that was going to be a free agent anyways with Holmes. It was a smart business decision and so is keeping a potential starting NT on the practice squad.

Does that help the understanding?
