FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - The New York Jets, in the market for a wide receiver, called Plaxico Burress' agent before the NFL draft to look into the former Giants star's legal troubles.

Burress was released by the Giants on April 3, just over four months after the Super Bowl hero accidentally shot himself in the thigh with an unlicensed gun in a New York City nightclub.

Burress faces at least 3 1/2 years in prison if convicted on a felony weapons charge.

Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum said late Sunday night that "consistent with our normal approach of performing our due diligence, we contacted Drew Rosenhaus several days ago, prior to the draft, to inquire about Plaxico's pending legal situation."

Tannenbaum went on to say that the Jets have had no discussions with Rosenhaus about Burress since that time.
