New York Jets owner Woody Johnson made it clear today that wide receiver Santonio Holmes will be back for the 2012 season,  despite the chaos he caused in the Jets locker room this season. Johnson said that he doesn’t regret paying Holmes a five year,  $45 million dollar contract this past offseason,  because he “may be one of the best players we have ever had here.” “That’s what you pay for people who have a lot of talent in the receptions business,” Johnson said. Johnson gave the impression that he still believes in quarterback Mark Sanchez but didn’t directly answer whether he’d be the starter next season. The only thing Johnson would say is,  “I have a lot of confidence in Mark Sanchez” He was then asked if Sanchez is 100 percent the starter in 2012 and he said,  there “is no such thing as 100 percent” in the NFL. Johnson was asked if the Jets will pursue Colts quarterback Peyton Manning and he said that they’ll “look at everything.” “I’m not going to ever tell you guys what we may or may not do,” he said. “Our job and my job is to, for the fans, take this team to the very top level. I’ve said that from the beginning, and I have a lot of confidence we can do it. So we’re going to look at everything, we’re going to look at every possibility, and that’s what you want us to do.”
