Jets' Holmes calls Polamalu 'greatest' he's seen


FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes calls Pittsburgh safety Troy Polamalu the "greatest player" he has ever played with or seen play in person.

Holmes was teammates with Polamalu in Pittsburgh for four seasons, and says Wednesday that everything the Steelers' long-haired ballhawk does on the field disrupts opponents and causes fits for offenses. Holmes, traded to the Jets in the offseason, says "everybody has their one person they think is the greatest," and in his eyes, it's Polamalu.

Polamalu sat out the teams' last meeting last month with a right Achilles' tendon injury.

The Jets (13-5) and Steelers (13-4) play for the AFC championship Sunday night.
