            By getting a deal done this early in the Jets training camp schedule, Gholston improves his chance of winning a starting sooner rather than later.  The Jets opened their camp on Thursday.  While he has to learn the strong side outside linebacker position he will have a chance to participate in all the training camp practices.

            We at the offer him congratulations and wish him great luck this year and for the rest of his career.
