Holmes was considered the Jets’ top priority, and the team agreed to terms with him on a deal worth almost $50 million on Wednesday.
Kicker Nick Folk is rejoining the Jets after agreeing to terms with the team on a one-year deal. “Happy to be headed back to Jersey on Friday and let’s get this going #JETSNATION,” Folk tweeted on Wednesday.
The Jets have placed a first- and third-round tender on Antonio Cromartie and Santonio Holmes. That means another team would have to give up a first- and third-round pick to sign either free agent — at least under the current collective bargaining agreement.
Are you ready, Jets fans? Here we go, we’re merely two days away from Gang Green’s chance to beat down the Pittsburgh Steelers and finally make it back to the Super Bowl.
With the attention turning to Jets-Steelers and the upset of Sunday fading, let’s take one more look back at the events of Sunday by handing out some hardware.
So the Jets weren’t all (trash) talk after all. Now Rex Ryan’s rowdy bunch is headed to its second straight AFC championship game after New York backed up its coach’s boasts with a 28-21 win Sunday over the Patriots – the team that had the best record in the NFL.
This practice was a little different for Mark Sanchez. It was the first time in nearly a month that his sore right shoulder was no longer an issue.

The postseason is a new season for the coach of the team with the NFL’s best record. For Bill Belichick, past results have little effect on future games. “Now it will be best two out of three. It’s probably the way it should be,” he said Sunday.
As Nick Folk’s kick slipped inside the right upright, just five feet became the buffer between might and misery, between a coach being the class clown and toast of the town.
Nick Folk nailed the game winning 32-yard field goal as time expired to give the Jets a 17-16 win over the Colts Saturday night in the Wild Card playoff at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Nick Folk kicked a 32-yard field goal as time expired Saturday night, giving the New York Jets a 17-16 first-round playoff victory over the Indianapolis Colts.
Six days after an embarrassing loss, things got even worse for the New York Jets. The offense was inexplicably flat, the quarterback was nearly benched and — get this — a coach on the sideline tripped and injured a Miami Dolphins player.
Plenty of words have been kicked around to describe the New York Jets this season. Good. Resilient. Tough. Advantageous. Then, there’s the one that just burns them up: Lucky.
Although the talk shows will be filled with calls this week from Jets fans that will paint a doom and gloom picture, Gang Green is sticking to a common saying…
