Now everyone had Plaxico Burress going to a New York team, but it was the Giants not the New York Jets. Other teams showed interest as well, but Burress decided on $3.017 million fully guaranteed from the Jets. He was scheduled to go to the 49ers for an interview, but that was scrapped after the Jets called and made their offer to him.
Burress is fresh out of jail and has not played for almost two years. Earlier in the week the Jets signed Santonio Holmes and now with Burress it looks like Braylon Edwards is the odd man out of New York. Burress is a big play receiver who will help the Jets out a lot if he can regain his old form quickly. It will be interesting to see how long it takes him to get back up to speed. No matter what the Jets have a great set of bookend wide outs for another Super Bowl run.
