New York, NY (SportsNetwork. Doug Gilmour Blues Jersey .com) - Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus and Clevelands Tank Carder have been selected as the AFCs top players for Week 5 of the NFL season. Thomas had eight catches for a career-high 226 yards with two touchdowns in Denvers 41-20 win over Arizona to capture the offensive award for the second time in his career. He set a Broncos record for receiving yards in a game, surpassing the mark of 214 by Shannon Sharpe in 2002. Dareus picked up the defensive honor for the first time after notching a career-high three sacks with a forced fumble and five tackles in Buffalos 17-14 win at Detroit. He became the third Bills player to be honored this season, joining kicker Dan Carpenter (Week 1) and C.J. Spiller (Week 2). Carder was chosen as the top special teams player, as his blocked punt for a safety helped the Browns to a 29-28 win over Tennessee. He helped Cleveland overcome a 25-point deficit, the largest any road team has overcome en route to a victory in NFL history. Others considered for the offensive award were Cleveland quarterback Brian Hoyer, who threw for 292 yards with three touchdowns in the comeback win over the Titans; San Diego running back Branden Oliver, who ran for 114 yards with a touchdown on 19 carries in a 31-0 win over the New York Jets; and New England quarterback Tom Brady, who threw for 292 yards with a pair of touchdowns in a 43-17 rout of Cincinnati. Defensive nominees included Patriots cornerback Kyle Arrington, who had seven tackles, a forced fumble and a 9-yard fumble return for a touchdown against the Bengals; and Tennessee safety Michael Griffin, who had 14 tackles with a sack and an interception in the loss to Cleveland. Carpenter was again up for the special teams award after his 58-yard kick in the closing seconds gave the Bills the victory in Detroit.

NEW YORK -- Tone Time is over for the New York Jets. 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 sseason. Carter Hutton Blues Jersey. 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.
