Jets Training Camp 2012: Santonio Holmes Gets Leadership Advice From Keyshawn Johnson

New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes had what he described as a "big-brother, little-brother type talk" with former Jets receiver Keyshawn Johnson on Friday at training camp.

Holmes said Johnson's advice was "Just teaching me how to be cordial to everybody, and to understand what gift I have to (give) this football team and this organization, and just learning how to utilize it." Johnson said what he told Holmes was, "All eyes are you. If you can do it -- and you've done it before -- you can write your ticket." (via ESPN New York)

Holmes recently spoke out in an interview against the two-quarterback system the Jets will use this season with Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow. Holmes said he took exception with the system based on his college experience at Ohio State.

After practice Holmes said about his comments in that interview, "It's something that I've never been a part of, except when I was in college and we had a few complications and we figured it out later in the season and whatever Coach (Tony) Sparano brings to the table and Coach Ryan wants our offense to work on is going to be what we are going to work on. We brought in a group of guys that are going to be football players and are going to compete and continue to help our team win ball games by all means, and that's what we're looking for."
