Jets GM Non-Committal About A Plaxico Burress Return

New York Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum praised the efforts of wide receiver Plaxico Burress this season, but would not say for sure whether the formerly incarcerated wide out would be back in 2012, according to the New York Daily News.

“He did a great job for us,” Tannenbaum told the paper. “I thought his blocking, he did a really good job with that. Obviously, he helped us in the red zone. . . . And he was a real pro.

“He’s really an interesting guy and he was a really good teammate. Free agency is a couple of months away, and we’ll look at everything.”

Burress signed a one-year, $3 million guaranteed deal with the Jets after spending two years in prison for criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment. The charges stemmed from an incident in a New York night club where the wide receiver accidently shot himself in the leg when a firearm he was carrying in his sweatpants misfired.

Prior to his arrest, he was considered to be one of the better players at his position in the NFL.

In 2011 Burress, 34, recorded 45 receptions and eight touchdowns in 16 games for New York.
