Plaxico Burress, anyone? Anyone?
Tim Tebow’s evangelical personality and playing style have New Yorkers divided on Tebowmania. But this isn’t the first time in recent memory that a polarizing sports star has come to town and inhabited the back pages.
Mark Sanchez and Santonio Holmes have moved on from their rift. Best buds? Well, maybe not quite yet.
Outside of the Peyton Manning rumors, which had no basis in reality, the Jets have been quiet and seem to be eyeing value over headlines. And that’s the right outlook for the Jets this offseason.

Plax likes the Eagles. He also hasn’t “totally” ruled out a return to the Jets. Now he says a reunion with the Giants is “always a great possibility.” Got all that?
Plaxico Burress wouldn’t mind flying high next season. But does he want to soar with the Jets or Eagles?
Has Burress seen enough of New York? After spending time hauling in catches for the Giants and Jets, the free-agent-to-be appears to have his sights set on Philadelphia.
It appears Burress, No. 17 with the Jets, may be replaced by the player who previously sported the same jersey number.
Brandon Jacobs said before the Super Bowl that a reunion between Burress and the Giants could be possible. But according to a new report, Plax has his eyes set on Philly.

“How many receiving yards did he have last year?” said Jacobs. “He’s a much better wide receiver than (45) catches, I tell you that.”
