CORTLAND, N.Y. — Keyshawn Johnson wrapped his arm around Santonio Holmes' shoulder and walked with him from the practice field.
They chatted for a few minutes Friday after the Jets' first training camp practice — one controversial former New York wide receiver to a current headline-maker. And Johnson told Holmes everything he needed to hear.
Holmes says the two had a "big brother to little brother-type talk," during which Johnson gave him some advice on how to deal with the media and controversy.
Holmes, of course, has long been considered a villain since last season, when he feuded with Mark Sanchez and the offensive linemen and was benched in the regular-season finale. Holmes also recently ruffled some feathers when he said he didn't think a two-quarterback system can work in the NFL.
