SHARE Santonio Holmes celebrates staying with New York Jets with champagne toast

Santonio Holmes had a very good day yesterday and the cover of today’s New York Post has the photographic evidence.

It features a shirtless Holmes drinking pricey champagne straight out of the bottle.

“Just finish a bottle of Louis Roederer Cristal from 2002! Big bro showed loved today,” the wide receiver tweeted just an hour after agreeing to terms with the New York Jets on a five-year, $50 million deal.

Apparently this type of celebration is not new to Holmes. After receiving a $100,000 signing bonus from the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2006, he spread the money across his mattress, snapped a photo and sent it to a friend.

Despite missing the first four games of the 2010 season due to a suspension, Holmes caught 52 passes for 746 yards and six touchdowns. His late-game heroics helped the Jets win games against the Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions and Houston Texans.
