The New York Jets have asked wide receiver Santonio Holmes to restructure his contract so the team can clear some salary cap space to go after free agents, reports ESPN.com.

Holmes is set to make $11 million next season and is guaranteed up to $7.5 million regardless of if has a roster spot or not. The team would pick up the remaining balance of up to the $7.5 million if he signs with another team.
