INDIANAPOLIS -- Soon-to-be free agent Plaxico Burress knows he's not returning to the Jets in 2012, so he took a couple of parting shots Wednesday night at Super Bowl XLVI.
Burress, who participated in an autograph show at one of the Super Bowl events in downtown Indianapolis, spoke effusively about his former team, the Giants. But when the subject turned to the Jets, his mood turned chilly.
He did a brief Q & A with NBC and the New York Post, and he's a sampling of his non-answers:
Q: What do you think of Mark Sanchez as a quarterback?
Burress: "Mark Sanchez is Mark Sanchez."
Q: What do you think of the criticism Sanchez has received since the end of the season?
Burress: "I haven't entertained any of it."
Q: Are you happy with your season with the Jets?
Burress: "It went as it went."
Q: Do you think the Jets maximized your ability?
Burress: "They used me the way they wanted to use me."
Get the picture?
The Jets have no interest in re-signing Burress, ESPNNewYork.com reported at the end of the season. On Tuesday at Media Day, Giants RB Brandon Jacobs told ESPNNewYork.com that his Burress, a close friend, wanted no part of re-signing with the Jets.
The feeling is mutual.
