The New York Jets 2011-12 season ended with their captain, Santonio Holmes, quitting on them in Miami as they missed out on the playoffs.

The Jets had made it to back-to-back AFC Championship games, and many felt they could finally make the jump into the Super Bowl. So when they failed to even get into the postseason, backlash and controversy had to be expected.

Much of the attention was put on the relationship between quarterback Mark Sanchez and Holmes. Many felt that in order for the Jets to get back on track next season, they would have to cut ties with Holmes.

However the Jets have decided to keep Holmes and recently picked up his guarantee which will keep him on the team. Now what needs to happen is restoring and recovering the relationship between Sanchez and his wide receiver.

Sanchez tried taking a step in the right direction in making sure their relationship is saved and strong by joking on Twitter. On Feb. 14, also known as Valentine's Day, Sanchez tweeted at Holmes and asked him to be his valentine.

He wrote, " you want to be my Valentine?"

This could be a good sign for Jets fans who are worried about whether or not their relationship will affect their play next season. The Jets have made significant moves this offseason, however, so far Sanchez will remain the franchise's starting quarterback and Holmes will remain the franchise's starting wide receiver.

With Sanchez making jokes at Holmes, it could show that they may have gotten past their issues and have strengthened their relationship.
