The New York Jets, known for their bravado and bold decision-making, are backing up offseason predictions.

This time, they didn’t even need a field to do it.

With Monday’s announcement by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell that “Football is back,” Jets owner Woody Johnson is following through with a promise he made to the organization: employees will recoup wages lost during the lockout, so long as no games are missed.

The New York Daily News reports that in March, the club told 96 business-related employees they were required to take one week of unpaid vacation per month until a new collective bargaining agreement was reached.

The Jets are expected to report to camp Sunday, following news the NFL and its players have agreed to a new 10-year labor deal to end the five-month long lockout.
