Santonio Holmes' New Jets Contract, And The Sliding Scale Of Hood Rich

When you're talking about the concept of "hood rich," there are varying degrees. How do you define hood rich? Let's just say you know it when you see it. Like when Santonio Holmes signed his rookie contract, he reportedly withdrew $100,000 from the bank, spread it out on a mattress, and text messaged photos to a friend. That's pretty darn hood rich.

We'll call that 8 Gucci Manes out of 10.

So how would Santonio celebrate today, after signing a five-year, $50 million with the Jets? ... With champagne, of course. And yes, on the surface, it doesn't sound as impressive, but please consider the photo after the jump.

Around 12:45, a few hours after news of his Jets deal broke, he tweeted, "Just finish a bottle of Louis Roederer Cristal from 2002! Big bro showed loved today." And it came with a photo:

Just outstanding. Again, celebrating a contract with champagne isn't hood rich at all. But then you consider... He's drinking it shirtless (+2.5). Boxers fully exposed (+1). Straight from the bottle (+1).

...Starting to sound a lot more gully, no?

He also tweeted it (+1) and gave a vague shoutout to "Big Bro" (+1).

Then the kicker: He just chugged a bottle of champagne at 1 in the afternoon (+2). ... In the end? It all gets him about 8.5 Gucci Manes out of 10. And I love free agency.
