Post-Lockout Giants And Jets Notes

Here are some New York Giants and New York Jets related notes as the NFL Lockout comes to an end and the business of the 2011 NFL season begins. Finally!

O'Hara 'extremely pleased' lockout is over | New York Daily News

Giants center Shaun O’Hara – the team’s player representative to the NFL Players Association – believed the two sides finally reached a deal that everyone on both sides will benefit from.

"After a long and strenuous process, we are extremely pleased to be able to get back to our jobs," O’Hara said via e-mail. "The business side of the game has been exhausting for everyone, including the fans.  It is our hope that this 10 year agreement will bring a decade’s worth of labor peace and enable the game to continue to grow exponentially.

"The players and the owners truly negotiated this deal, both sides gave and both sides gained, and ultimately everyone will benefit from this deal."

For the Jets, Holmes should be the No.1 priority - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

I’m sure there will be plenty of teams that would make an offer if Holmes does hit the open market (Washington for one), but the Jets can’t let it get that far. Let Edwards walk, sign for good money somewhere else and find a player that can duplicate his production in this offense.

But don’t think twice when it comes to Holmes. His value goes beyond just numbers and big plays. And if Rex Ryan wants to keep talking Super Bowl (which I still love hearing) then get the WR back in New York as soon as the new league year opens up.

NFL free agency rush likely to include New York Jets bidding war with Redskins for Santonio Holmes
The Jets play the Redskins in Washington on Dec. 4. There's a good chance Santonio Holmes will be playing in that game. But for which team? inging back Holmes, the top wide receiver playmaker on the market, as an unrestricted free agent is the Jets' No. 1 priority. Sources say the Redskins have also made Holmes, who already has a Super Bowl ring, their No. 1 priority.
