Jerricho Cotchery: We'd welcome Plaxico Burress
May 7, 2009 (Newsday delivered by Newstex ) --


The veteran receiver's eyes lit up when I asked him if he was open to the idea of Plaxico Burress signing with the Jets . Rex Ryan did not close the door on signing Burress if he can resolve his legal issues in connection with a Nov. 26 self-shooting at a New York nightclub.

"I would welcome him," Cotchery said. "I know a lot of guys would welcome him because they know what kind of player he is. He's a good guy. I enjoy watching him play."

Cotchery said the team should carefully monitor Burress' situation.

"Obviously, the league is coming down on guys, even if you plead or anything like that," he said. "But I would monitor that situation. Hes a great player. That was the big difference in the Giants last year. When they needed big catch, someone to make plays, he wasnt there. The year before, he made plays and carried the team to the Super Bowl. Hes a guy you have to watch out for."

Would Burress have any trouble fitting into the Jets' locker room, given his troubled past?

"Not at all," Cotchery said. "Not at all."

Jets guard Alan Faneca, who played with Burress during their days with the Steelers, also said Burress would be welcomed in the locker room.

"I have good memories of Plax," Faneca said. "You know who he is and what he's about and what he puts together on the field."

Faneca said the Jets have not asked him about his time with Burress in Pittsburgh.

As for the controversy surrounding Burress' self-shooting, Faneca said, "I havent followed it as closely, so Im not privy to the whole story, but were in New York, and were professional athletes. Its part of the deal. Everyone in the locker room knows if you do something out of character or against the law, the bigger the things that go on, the bigger its going to get."
