Unfortunately no since many fans always find a reason to complain. However, he has been known for big play ability in the past and at one point was a primary focus of offense. Since then he has fallen off the wagon quite a bit but was it his fault? Let's take a look at some stats...
|2012||New York Jets||4||4||20||272||13.6||38||1||0||0||0.0||0||0||1||1|
|2011||New York Jets||16||16||51||654||12.8||38T||8||3||27||9.0||23||0||2||1|
|2010||New York Jets||12||10||52||746||14.3||52||6||2||17||8.5||14||0||2||2|

Back when he was with the Steelers he the best seasons of his career. Coincidence? I don't think so... He had Ben Roethlisberger throwing him the ball. When he left and went to the New York Jets his production fell way off. Most in part to injuries but also I think because of the quarterback play.
This leads us to the Cleveland Browns who will be in need of someone with some big play ability but that's also used to being in that role. That's why Holmes fits the mold for them, we don't actually know how his health will hold but he did have the ability at one point in time. With limited options out there right now... what do the Browns have to lose? They should grab him so he can get used to the offense and they will be able to get a full camp to evaluate him before the season starts. Signing a player like Earl Bennett is not going to get the job done.
What do you think? Should they take a chance on Holmes or is he washed up? Comment below!
