Plaxico Burress To The New York Jets? Another Round Of Speculation

ESPN football writer Adam Schefter has stirred up another round of 'Plaxico Burress to the New York Jets' rumors with a recent response to a question submitted to his blog.

Asked if the currently incarcerated Burress, who will be released this summer, could be a Jet in the 2011 season Schefter responded that it "would make sense."

Here is more of his answer.

"My sense is that Burress' potential future with New York would be tied to the fates of those other three wide receivers [Santonio Holmes, Brad smith, Braylon Edward]. The Jets would like to bring back all of them, but that is probably not realistic. ... New York already has drafted a potential replacement for Smith, using a fifth-round pick on TCU wide receiver and return man Jeremy Kerley. Now the question is, can the Jets keep Edwards and Holmes? If they can't, then the chances of Burress winding up with New York increase."

The Sporting News also wrote Monday that the Jets were "a possible landing spot" for Burress. The publication also listed the St. Louis Rams, Chicago Bears, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins as potential suitors.
