During the last regular season game against the Miami Dolphins, where the New York Jets had to win to get the sixth spot for the AFC playoffs, they lost 19-17.

In that game, several Jets players thought that Santonio Holmes quit on the team. They said so and their words were put out over Twitter and Facebook. His teammates all said they didn’t want him back.

Well, it seems like all is forgiven.

The former Ohio State wide receiver will be staying with the Jets after remaining on their roster for the second day of the NFL’s waiver period.

Holmes will get $15.25 million dollars in guaranteed money for the next two years.

Mark Sanchez completed passes of 9 yards to Braylon Edwards and 11 yards to Santonio Holmes to get the ball to the Colts’ 34-yard line. Two plays later, Sanchez hit Edwards again for 18 yards to the 14, and the Jets let the clock run down to three seconds before calling timeout and setting up the game-winner by Folk.

Ohio State assistant Hazell hired as head coach at Kent State

Ohio State assistant head coach Darrell Hazell made history on Monday while being named as the school’s new head football coach. He has become the first black head football coach in the school’s 90-year history as a program.

Hazell becomes Kent State’s 20th football coach. He replaces Doug Martin, who resigned last month with one game remaining in a 5-7 season. Martin had a seven year record of 29-53.

Hazell’s job is to beat the Golden Flashes arch-rival Akron and turn the program into a consistent winner in the Mid-American Conference.

Hazell was one of four candidates interviewed on campus. The others included: Kent State defensive coordinator Pete Rekstis and wide receivers coaches Curt Cignetti of Alabama and Bobby Kennedy of Texas, respectively.

Hazell’s final game with the Ohio State Buckeyes will be the Sugar Bowl contest against Arkansas on January 4. He will however, spend some time at Kent State talking to his players, evaluating what assistants will be kept, who to hire as assistants and of course recruit. He’ll rejoin the Buckeyes after Christmas.

Hazell, who is 46, has 25 years of college coaching experience, with the past seven being at Ohio State. As the Ohio State wide receivers coach, he was beneficial in the development of Ted Ginn, Jr. Brian Robiske, Brian Hartline, Anthony Gonzalez and Santonio Holmes.

Hazell was a top-notch football player in his own right, just not on the Division I level. He was an All-America wide receiver receiver as a senior at Division III Muskingum University in Ohio in 1986 and became running backs coach at Oberlin College in 1987. He also been an assistant at Eastern Illinois, Pennsylvania, Western Michigan, Army, West Virginia and spent three years at Rutgers and then joined Tressel’s staff in 2004.

BROWNS NOTES: Lose in overtime to New York Jets, 26-20

The Cleveland Browns game with the New York Jets was very exciting but it was heading for 20-20 tie as overtime would down. It would’ve been the first tie in the NFL since 2008, when the Philadelphia Eagles tied the Cincinnati Bengals in Cincinnati at 13-13.

But QB Mark Sanchez and the Jets had other plans.

Steelers trade troubled Holmes who will get a 4-game suspension

Santonio Holmes (nfl)

The New York Jets have been the busiest team during the NFL’s offseason making several bold moves to get them closer to that goal of a Super Bowl.

Their latest move is that of acquiring talented but troubled wide receiver Santonio Holmes from the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night for a fifth-round pick in this month’s draft.

Earlier on Monday, the NFL has suspended Holmes for 4 games in the upcoming 2010 season due his conduct this offseason. The 26-year-old Holmes is facing a lawsuit in Florida from a woman who claims he threw a glass at her, cutting her above the eye, in an Orlando nightclub. The police have been investigating the woman’s claims. Holmes denies hurting the woman, and a witness has since taken responsibility for tossing the glass, according to Holmes’ attorney.

Not a stranger to trouble,  In 2008, Santonio was arrested for possession of marijuana, and he was involved in a domestic violence in 2006; the misdemeanor charges were dismissed. However, sources have said that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell warned him that repeated off-the-field issues would result in a suspension.

Holmes,  the 2009 Super Bowl MVP, gives second-year quarterback Mark Sanchez another big-time target to throw to in an offense that already has receivers Braylon Edwards, Jerricho Cotchery, talented tight end Dustin Keller and recently signed free agent running back LaDainian Tomlinson.

The 5’11  Ohio State product was a first-round pick in 2006,  has 235 career catches for 3,835 yards and 20 touchdowns and adds a speedy complement to the jets’ passing game. He’s coming off the best season of his career statistically, after having 79 catches for 1,248 yards and five touchdowns. Holmes’ presence should allow Cotchery to assume more of a slot role, where he is extremely effective, and take double coverage off of Braylon Edwards.

After surprisingly making it to the AFC championship game last season, the Jets and general manager Mike Tannenbaum have been aggressive despite the league’s “Final Eight” restrictions that have limited who they could sign. The Jets have traded for Holmes and cornerback Antonio Cromartie, and signed Tomlinson, safety Brodney Pool and kicker Nick Folk.
