Give the Steelers some credit

Paul KasprzakContributor IApril 12, 2010

According to ProFootballTalk.com, the Pittsburgh Steelers have trade wide receiver Santonio Holmes to the New York Jets. You got to give them credit for finally taking a stand.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have always been a classy organization. With drafting Holmes they thought they took a talented wide receiver that they could turn into a solid citizen.

However, that isn’t the case as Holmes has most likely got busted for smoking weed with the current four game suspension imposed on him.

People may say that I am contradicting myself with my recent article on Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch.

However, the fact is they are two totally different things as Lynch’s problem is the people he hangs with while Holmes is drugs and it is much easier to straighten a person out not on drugs.

In the end, the Steelers have realized that it is time to purge people like Holmes even if it means taking a step back and should be applauded for it.
