Quarterback Mark Sanchez will now have a new target to toss to. Wide receiver Santonio Holmes was traded to Gang Green from the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night. In return for the 26-year-old, the Steelers will receive the Jets' fifth-round pick in the N.F.L. draft later this month.

Holmes was the M.V.P. in the Steelers Super Bowl 43 win over the Arizona Cardinals. But, he is currently facing a lawsuit in Florida. A woman claims she was injured after Holmes allegedly threw a glass at her at an Orlando nightclub. Steelers President Art Rooney said he was "disappointed" in Holmes shortly after the allegations emerged. But, Holmes denied them.

This is not the first time Holmes' off the field antics made headlines. In 2008, he issued an apology after he was charged with marijuana possession, and recent reports indicate he could face a four game suspension this season under the league's substance-abuse policy.

The trade to the Jets shows the Steelers have no patience for off-the-field behavioral problems. But, what does it say about their decision to keep Ben Roethlisberger. On Monday, the Steelers will learn whether Roethlisberger will face charges of sexual assault. For the Jets, Holmes is another big name with questionable character. It will test Coach Rex Ryan's confidence that he and the Jets can handle the most challenging players.
