Plaxico Burress will indeed join the Jets, according to a team source.

The details aren't exactly known but Burress accepted the Jets' offer. It's a one-year deal.

The Jets now have one of the best wide receiver groups in the league. When I tweeted that earlier it caused an avalanche of smart-ass-ness including from wanna be GM Pete Prisco. But I have a higher opinion of Burress as a player than others. I think he's one of the most physically gifted wide receivers of the past decade and his stint in prison doesn't scare me. Just like Mike Vick's stint in the hoosegow didn't totally scare me and we see what Vick did at a much tougher position to re-master.

Vick emerged from prison a better player. I think Burress can as well.

Burress was out west visiting the San Francisco 49ers. The story actually first leaked when a friend of Burress, running back Fred Taylor, congratulated Burress on his joining the Jets.

Burress later wrote on his Twitter page: "East Coast here I come!"

Burress recently had a meeting with his former coach, Tom Coughlin. Coughlin described the meeting as pleasant but Burress' meeting with the Jets must have been more pleasant. Burress also met with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Jets lost out on a great defensive back but they gain a terrific wide receiver.

Agree with you 100% Magnum. They need to resign Cromartie, with the understanding that while he had a solid year last season he isn't that good. They also MUST get a pass rusher.
