Jenny Vrentas is reporting on NJ.com that the New York Jets and Santonio Holmes have agreed to a new contract. Under the post-lockout rules, the new deal can’t be officially signed and filed with the league until Friday.
After the Jets made an offer yesterday evening, Holmes has agreed to re-sign with the team, per a person informed of the move. That person requested anonymity because the move cannot be made official until Friday.
The deal is reportedly five years in length and includes around $24 million in guarantees.
This move gives the Jets the continuity they need heading into a season. Since no teams had off season workouts or mini camps, continuity is going to be king.
