NEW YORK -- Tone Time is over for the New York Jets. Connor Murphy Jersey . The Jets parted ways with wide receiver Santonio Holmes on Monday, cutting the talented but injury-plagued playmaker after four seasons. The move, which had been expected, saves the Jets $8.25 million, which Holmes was due to make as his base salary this season. He was also scheduled to have a $10.75 million cap number, a lofty total for a one-time Super Bowl MVP who has struggled with injuries and inconsistency the last two seasons. The Jets also released cornerback Antonio Cromartie on Sunday, clearing $17.75 million of salary cap space before the NFLs free agency period starts Tuesday. New York could also save another $8.3 million if they cut quarterback Mark Sanchez, who missed last season with a shoulder injury. Holmes, who turned 30 last Monday, had 23 catches -- the second-lowest total of his career -- for 456 yards and a touchdown in 11 games last season. He missed five games midway through the season with a hamstring injury. Holmes played in just four games in 2012 and was sidelined for several months after suffering a career-threatening foot injury. In December, Holmes said he would be willing to restructure his contract to remain a member of the Jets, adding that how much of a pay cut hed be asked to take probably wouldnt play into his decision to want to stay. "I appreciate Tones contributions over the last four seasons," coach Rex Ryan said in a statement. "Ive always admired his knack for making the clutch play. Hes a tremendous competitor who wants the ball in his hands when the game is on the line. I wish him nothing but the best." Holmes signed a five-year, $45 million deal before the 2011 season after a solid first year with the Jets, who acquired him from Pittsburgh for a fifth-round draft pick. He agreed to restructure his contract in March 2012, when he took a $3.5 million cut to his scheduled base salary of $11 million for last season. Holmes was a controversial figure at times during his tenure with the Jets, butting heads with Sanchez and the teams offensive linemen during the 2011 season. In the season finale at Miami, he got into an argument with offensive tackle Wayne Hunter in the huddle and was benched for the rest of the game. The mercurial wide receiver also had a contentious relationship with the media, keeping his answers short during most group interviews. He inadvertently made headlines last season when he called Carolinas secondary the Panthers defences "weakest link" while trying to credit the unit -- but providing bulletin board for an opponent that went out and beat the Jets 30-20. Holmes was a first-round draft pick by the Steelers out of Ohio State in 2006 and was selected the Super Bowl MVP in his third season after he caught a 6-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger with 35 seconds left to lead Pittsburgh past Arizona. He had his best statistical performance the following season with 79 catches for 1,248 yards and five touchdowns. But Holmes was traded to the Jets the following off-season after the Steelers tired of his numerous legal troubles. Holmes was suspended for his first four games with the Jets for violating the NFLs substance abuse policy, but quickly became one of the teams primary playmakers when he returned. He played a key role in three straight wins with big catches late in games, prompting Ryan to label those types of clutch moments as "Tone Time." He also helped lead the Jets to their second straight AFC title game appearance, in which they lost to Holmes former team. Holmes has 381 career catches for 5,963 yards and 36 touchdowns in eight NFL seasons. NOTES: The Jets offered a one-year tender to restricted free agent LB Nick Bellore, who is one of the teams core special teams players. He has until May 2 to accept the offer or negotiate with other teams.

I used to be a perfectionist, but my attitude now is to play like Im in the pro-am.A disappointed Fernando Alonso feels McLaren simply didnt have the pace to challenge for points at the Chinese GP. Heading into qualifying the Woking squad were eyeing spots in Q3, but had to settle for 11th and 12th on the grid after a red flag forced them to abort their final qualifying runs.Despite chaos ahead in the race, McLaren couldnt hold onto any positions they gained at the start, finishing 12th and 13th at the chequered flag. We didnt have the pace today to be in the points. That is a shame. We need to improve for the next round, Alonso told Sky Sports F1.The Safety Car didnt help, but even after the Safety Car we were not quick enough in the race and we need to go into the details of what we can improve. Martin Brundle chats to Fernando Alonso ahead of the Chinese GP The result means McLaren have still only scored one point in 2016, and that was picked up by reserve driver Stoffel Vandoorne in Bahrain where he deputised for Alonso.However, the Spaniard is still taking positives away from Shanghai.We ran with a lot of people today so we probably have a good reference now to where the strongest points of our car are and where the weaknesses are that we need to improve, Alonso added.It is a useful race and mmy first long run to be honest, in winter testing we never did 50 laps and in Australia I had the accident and in Bahrain I didnt participate. Jan Rutta Jersey. Jenson Button agreed with Fernando Alonso that McLarens pace wasnt quick enough In the sister car, Button is hoping the post-race analysis will show they went the wrong way on strategy, otherwise he agrees with Alonso that their pace isnt good enough.We tried to do a two-stop, but it didnt look like it was ever going to work, maybe our pace just isnt good enough or maybe it was the wrong choice of tyre, we will have to look at that, Button told Sky Sports F1.Hopefully we have made the wrong strategy call putting on the medium because if we havent then we arent quick enough to be in the points at the moment because nothing else went wrong. So I am hoping that that was the wrong choice. Chinese GP report Nico Rosberg wins, Lewis Hamilton down in seventh The Shanghai International Circuit boasts the longest straight on the F1 calendar and Sky Sports F1 analyst Paul di Resta feels that on a less power dependent track points will come for McLaren.They are getting closer, they will definitely come when we get to a smaller track. I guess the big test to come for them is Barcelona, it is not so reliant on the Honda power plant, but more the downforce of the car, he said.They are getting there, getting them into Q3 and out of trouble is key.Dont miss the F1 Report on Wednesday at 8:30pm on Sky Sports F1 for full analysis of an action-packed Chinese Grand Prix at the Shanghai International Circuit.
