Update, 5:30 p.m. ET
The New York Jets have announced this morning that they have reached an agreement in principle with wide receiver Plaxico Burress.
Burress, of course, is the 10th-year wideout who starred for five seasons with the Steelers and four with the Giants, including Super Bowl XLII before missing the last two seasons due to a firearms conviction.
Burress, who has 505 career regular-season receptions for 7,845 yards and 55 touchdowns, was reported to have visited with his first two teams, the Giants and Steelers, before traveling to San Francisco to meet with the 49ers and then back east to talk with the Jets.
The audio of Burress’ conference call with reporters will be streamed on newyorkjets.com beginning at 5:45 p.m. ET and will be archived after that.
