Santonio Holmes has reworked his contract to stay with  the New York Jets, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Holmes was scheduled to have an $11 million base salary for 2013, and with $7.5 million of that set to be guaranteed on the second day of the new league year (tomorrow), it's safe to say that without the redo, Holmes woul dhave been a candidate for release.

Now, Mark Sanchez or David Garrard or Gregg McElroy or maybe even Tim Tebow will have Holmes to throw to this season.
