Plaxico Burress last played in a NFL game in November of 2008. Last night he made his Jets debut and made his much-anticipated return to the NFL after spending time in the slammer for a gun charge. He showed no rust at all catching 3 passes for 66 yards including an amazing 26 yard TD grab with 51 seconds remaining in the first half. Jets fans were excited to see him play and gave him a nice ovation when he caught a 20 yard pass on the Jets very first offensive play.
Plaxico should continue to improve his chemistry with Mark Sanchez with practice time. The Jets right now have a lethal receiving core with Plaxico, Santonio Holmes, Derrick Mason, and Dustin Keller (TE). With a strong running game, a great offensive line, and development from Sanchez this offense should be even better than last season.
