Mike Tannenbaum’s phone must be ringing non stop in his Florham Park office. Santonio Holmes has agreed to terms with the Jets on a new 5-year deal — and that’s not all.
Here we go. Football is back — with a vengeance. There are about 1,000 veterans, draft picks and undrafted rookies that need to be signed by the Jets, Giants and 30 other NFL clubs.
While I understand and do not begrudge any player wanting to fill his bank account there’s a way to go about it that doesn’t scream “screw you people.” That’s pretty much what Antonio Cromartie is saying here.
The NFL lockout appears to be coming to an end. When it does, the Jets will quickly be in the middle of the utter madness of free agency. General Manager Mike Tannenbaum and coach Rex Ryan will have their hands full making this team better.
To get to the Super Bowl the Jets have to deal yearly with Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, and Peyton Manning, so why leave anything to chance? Why have just one elite corner when you can have two?

Super Bowl or bust? Well, the New York Jets’ big hopes might hinge upon the one player not at training camp.
