Video: Holmes on E:60



Santonio Holmes is best known as a Super Bowl MVP who, in just six years, has made headlines for his clutch plays on the field and his arrests off it. The New York Jets gambled and made him their top free-agent priority in the offseason, signing him to a five-year, $50 million deal even though his off-field troubles have put him one strike away from a one-year suspension. That’s what you know. What you might not know is that Holmes and his oldest son share a potentially deadly inheritance, a disease that has linked the two for life. Rachel Nichols reports for E:60 on how Holmes is turning a seemingly negative situation into an opportunity to become a better father, a better player and a better person.
