"The first year they had good chemistry together," Ryan said. "Whatever happened, happened but we'll learn from it. I'm confident because I think we have to be successful, they have to be successful together. I know one thing they are both extremely competitive.
"There isn't one person in this organization who feels good about where we finished. I think the strength of our football team will be in how we feel about each other and all that, the chemistry that we've always built. I think that will be a strength and won't be a weakness like it might have been perceived this year."
Ryan acknowledged that team chemistry was a problem last season.
"I know we had some bumps in the road, no question," Ryan said. "I feel great about where I think we can go and how we can pull this team back together."
The Jets have no plans to cut Holmes, who's signed to a five-year, $45 million contract that will include $15 million in guaranteed money if he remains on the roster Wednesday.
"That's not going to happen," Ryan said when asked if Holmes will be released.
