I just checked my watch, and it’s Tone Time. The Chicago Bears have agreed to terms with former Steelers and Jets receiver Santonio Holmes, according to reports.

Holmes spent the last 4-seasons with the Jets after being selected in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers. In Super Bowl XLIII, Holmes made one of the greatest catches in Steelers history when he hauled in a pass in the corner of the end-zone with 35 seconds remaining that proved to be the game winner.
He was traded to the Jets 2-years later and his time there got off to a good start. Holmes helped lead the Jets to the 2010 AFC Championship game his first season there, and tied his career high with 8 touchdowns his 2nd season.
Things went down hill from there once Holmes went down with a lisfranc injury in week 4 of the 2012 season. He returned in time for the start of the 2013 season but did not come close to resembling the same player.
The Bears worked Holmes out earlier in the week and must have saw something they liked from the 30-year-old who will be looking to silence his critics.
