Jets’ Santonio Holmes Congratulates Mark Sanchez On Contract Extension
Either the bad blood between New York Jets teammates Santonio Holmes and Mark Sanchez has all dried up, or Holmes is at least really good at faking it publicly. In any event, Holmes took to Twitter today to congratulate his quarterback on his new contract extension:
Very happy for Mark & the entire team with his extension. Looking forward to getting back to work when I get back this amazing trip @nyjets—

Holmes’ tweet was notable, of course, because the two Jets made headlines last season for bashing each other publicly in the media. The rift between the two was at its worst toward the end of the season, as the Jets finished out a disappointing 8-8 campaign and missed the postseason for the first time in Sanchez’s career.
Nevertheless, GM Mike Tannenbaum and the Jets plan to keep the two players around for next season. Sanchez and the team announced a new three-year, $40 million contract extension on Friday night.
