Jets Have Discussed Signing Burress:

From Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com

Need more evidence that Jets G.M. Mike Tannenbaum knows he needs to win now or else?

According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, the Jets have talked internally about signing receiver Plaxico Burress.

Per Mort, nothing’s imminent and the acquisition is currently unlikely.  But the Jets have talked about keeping Burress in New York.

The Jets need a wideout, given that Laveranues Coles gave up $6 million in guaranteed salary for his freedom, and then signed with the Bengals.

Plaxico’s freedom is likely the main impediment to serious consideration of his services.  He faces charges that could put him away for a mandatory minimum of 3.5 years, and we’ve heard that he has rejected plea arrangements that would require any jail time.

    This is not a suprise, nor will the Jets be the only team to look at Plax once he gets through this.
