The Jets sign Vernon Gholston to a 5 year contract.

John Clayton of ESPN is reporting that the New York Jets and representatives of Vernon Gholston have come to agreement and Gholston has signed the deal.  According to Clayton it is a 5 year deal worth up to 50 million dollars and includes 21 million dollars guaranteed.

            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.
