Turner could see his role increase next season, particularly if the Jets don’t re-sign Plaxico Burress.

“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.”
Hey, who are you scoffing at? That was the feeling four years ago among a handful of Giants defenders when Tom Brady pooh-poohed Plaxico Burress’ prediction.

The Jets received a boost before their crucial game with the Giants. Plaxico Burress and Jeremy Kerley returned to full practice schedules on Thursday.
The Jets wide receiver, adding to a week of trash talk, didn’t hesitate when he was asked to assess the guys he’ll be lining up against Saturday.
Burress had plenty of memorable moments in four seasons with the Giants. Well, he’s planning to add another on Saturday — against them this time, as a member of the Jets.
