He is a long way from his greatest catch, the game-winning catch in the 2008 Super Bowl against the undefeated New England Patriots. This is also a guy who ruined the 2008 season for the New York Giants after his arrest, as they struggled to finish the season and then proceeded to be eliminated in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs.
What I'm trying to say is he's a perfect fit for the Jets.
The Jets are risk takers and those risks have panned out in the past (see Braylon Edwards and Santonio Holmes). Rex Ryan seems to know how to get the most out of his players, and I wouldn't be surprised if he pulls out that magic on Burress.
Plaxico can be a pain in the you-know-what, and his decision making is in question after his arrest, but on the field, he can be a difference maker for the Jets.
How good can he be? Let's find out.
