New York Jets running back Thomas Jones' holdout is all but over.

Drew Rosenhaus, Jones' agent, on Tuesday wrote on his Twitter page that his client will report to his team's camp next Wednesday.

Unhappy about his contract, Jones is entering the third year of a four-year, $20 million deal, and has missed two weeks of his team's workouts.

Fellow running back Leon Washington, also unsatisfied with his contact, has been absent as well.

The 30-year-old Jones is scheduled to make just $900,000 this campaign, despite enjoying the best season of his nine-year career in 2008. Jones scored 15 total touchdowns -13 rushing - and recorded 1,312 yards to lead the AFC.

He was named the conference's starting running back at the Pro-Bowl.

While the team's duo of running backs have been missing, rookie Shonn Greene reportedly has been taking most of the snaps for New York. The Jets selected the former Iowa star with the first pick of the third round in April's draft.
