New York Jets Rumors: Plaxico Burress Appears Ready To Move On

Plaxico Burress does not sound like he has much interest in returning to the New York Jets for the 2012 season. Burress answered questions during a Wednesday autograph show with clipped non-answers that, in reality, spoke volumes.

Here are some examples:

"Mark Sanchez is Mark Sanchez."

"They [the Jets] used me the way they wanted to use me."

"The Jets locker room is the Jets locker room."

Those are answers that say everything without really saying anything.

Burress caught 45 passes for 612 yards and eight touchdowns for the Jets after signing a one-year contract. The former New York Giants wide receiver had, of course, missed the 2009 and 2010 season after being sentenced to prison for shooting himself in the leg while illegally carrying a handgun in a New York City nightclub.

New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs, a close friend of Burress's, said on Wednesday that Burress could still be interested in a return to the Giants.
