After last year's season ended in a firestorm and allegations came out about an apparent feud in the Jets locker room between Sanchez and Santonio Holmes, Holmes has had a quieter offseason.
As reported by Joe Caproso of the blog Turn on the Jets, Holmes has been traveling all over the world for various fundraisers but the media so far has fixated on Holmes's withdrawal from OTA's last week.
As he pulled himself out due to fatigue from having returned from Germany where he visited with troops, reporters have been quick to point out how Holmes has become a negative fixture at practice.
The wide receiver has received some bad press lately and it all isn't without merit.
The feud last season with Sanchez was so bad he was eventually benched in the Jets final game of the season.
As of now, he has made amends with Sanchez after the QB had flown down to Florida so they could smooth out the rough patches.
His withdrawal from OTA's last week is not a major issue. It's not even July yet but he is being scrutinized over running too few reps?
Give him a break; he has been on a whirlwind tour doing some good and trying to change his attitude but due to the fact he has a bad history with the team, he is being cast in a negative and critical light.
Come the first game of the season, this will be a non-issue and forgotten by fans and reporters alike.
As for now, the spotlight falls harshly on Holmes as he tries to clear out his reputation and become more of a team player as the Jets prepare for this upcoming season.
