Well, all of us fans can throw that reunion talk out the window. Plax signed with the jets.
Apparently he was flying to San Francisco to talk with the 49ers and on a layover in LA, he was offered the deal.

Per espn.com:
NEW YORK -- Forget about Braylon Edwards. Forget about Randy Moss. The New York Jets stayed local, signing former Giants Super Bowl star Plaxico Burress to a one-year contract, the team announced Sunday morning.

Burress' deal is worth $3.017 million, fully guaranteed, league sources told ESPN Insider Adam Schefter.

They are doing the same thing they did with Holmes and with Edwards. Signing a player to a 1 yr. deal and if it doesn't work out they can cut them. That's all well and good but you end up with a ton of free agents every year and a lot of team turnover.

Whatever, we didn't need him to get back to the super bowl, it was a luxury and depth move for this team. It would have been nice to have that big target for Ben to have at his disposal but let's be realistic, we weren't pinning our post season chances on Plax here.

...now that we didn't bring back plax, and the eagles signed asamouga, would there be any chance at the steelers trading for asante samuels? or even if it's a good idea? thoughts?

I knew in my heart he wouldn't sign . What was the reason he left oh yea money . We have Sweed and Saunders . When we spent money on the brokedown punter they were not gonna sign him .

Every year I sit here and get pissed with this team for not signing FA's. We really didn't need him and I'm sure the brass thought the same.

We can not get FA's, because we're OVER the limit. It's not just that we don't have any extra money to spend, we have spent too much and need to get under. That's our ONLY priority right now.

We signed Cam Heyward i'd say that a good move . Everyone forgets that we went to the super bowl last year our roster is only slightly different so we are in good shape . People get upset that we don't make big desperate moves but compare our history to the Jets or Eagles .We act like champions not like Rex Ryan who shoots his pie hole off and gaurantees thing he can't deliver:nahnah:

He doesn't play LT or CB, so I am not all that disappointed.

They need to generate ratings, hopefully that is all they are doing. We have 4 WRs better than Moss right now. To bring a cancer like that into our lockerroom would be about the dumbest thing ever.

Look on the bright side Jets, if Plax can't catch a ball with his hands I'm sure his anus has been stretched out enough for a few more balls...

This still makes me mad. Had to deal with Jagr going to the Flyers, now Burress to the Jets? Ugh.
