Exclusive: Holmes signs with NFL team


//

The NFL dream just became a reality for Valentine Holmes. 

I hope he looks good in green and white, because for the next 12 months the Cronulla, Queensland Origin and Australia star is a guaranteed New York Jet. 

In an 11-week transformation which has stunned hardened NFL scouts, Holmes bumped aside some of America’s and the world’s best athletes to secure an International Pathways spot on the Jets roster.

Holmes took the call from the Jets at 8.30 Tuesday morning, at home in Cronulla. 

He was told that he will go straight into the Jets training squad and will play in their four pre-season games.

If Valentine excels, he will win a spot in the 53-man roster. At the very least, he will remain a Jet for 12 months, training and travelling with the team as their International player; a kind of apprenticeship.

He’s a natural fit for the Jets, who are hunting for punt returners and running backs.

Holmes’ success will dismay North Queensland Cowboy fans, who hoped he would become available to shore-up their dwindling backline reserves in the NRL this season.

He leaves for New York to begin training later this week.

Nine News will have an EXCLUSIVE interview with Holmes tonight at 6pm, recorded just minutes after he was given the news.
