According to the New York Times, Jets Coach Rex Ryan left the door open to the Jets' interest in receiver Plaxico Burress.
Ryan has high hopes for receivers Brad Smith and David Clowney, but the Jets called Burress's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, before the draft to check on Burress's status. Burress, the former Giants receiver, has a June court date, and his lawyers continue to work on a plea deal to limit prison time on a felony weapons charge.

Joe Horn, 36, has been a free agent since the Falcons released him on Aug. 19, after he requested a trade.
But, on a day when the team signed free-agent receiver Derek Hagan to aid a passing game lacking Plaxico Burress, the Giants also dialed up Horn and invited him for a visit, according to the Newark Star-Ledger.
Horn worked out for the Titans earlier this season but left without signing a contract.
Before the Falcons cut him, he publicly stated his desire to be traded to the Cowboys.
The Giants appeared to be on their way to winning a second straight Super Bowl before Burress accidentally shot himself in a nightclub and landed on the non-football injury list. Since that incident, the Giants offense has been held to 36 points in three games.

The New York Giants made the difficult decision to suspend Plaxico Burress for two weeks and one game for violating team rules. According to the New York Post, Burress will sit, but he will likely recoup some of the money the Giants wanted to dock from his paycheck.
The two-game suspension would have cost Burress $235,294, but since there is a bye week involved, an agreement is in place to take just one game check away from Burress, meaning he'll be $117,647 lighter in the wallet.
The Giants have a long list of past transgressions against Burress and his no-show for work last Monday was the latest problem he's encountered with the team.
