Even though he faces the likelihood of jail time, former Giants WR Plaxico Burress is drawing interest from "at least two teams that are very serious about signing him," according to his agent. The receiver-needy Jets could be one of those teams. They acknowledged a call to the agent, Drew Rosenhaus, before last month's draft, and they continue to keep tabs on Burress. Owner Woody Johnson told the Daily News two weeks ago that he wouldn't stand in the way if GM Mike Tannenbaum wants to sign the controversial player.
On Thursday, Burress received a call from an unnamed head coach, according to Rosenhaus, who issued a Burress update Friday via his Twitter account.
