FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Plaxico Burress has joined his New York Jets teammates on the team's first day of training camp.

A day after signing, Burress stood on side while the Jets went through a light practice Monday.

Wearing a visor, gray long-sleeved T-shirt and Jets shorts, Burress talked with quarterback Mark Sanchez and fellow wide receiver Santonio Holmes.

The former Super Bowl star with the Giants agreed to a one-year deal Sunday. He was recently released from prison after serving nearly two years on a gun charge.

Free agents can't practice with their new teams until the union recertifies and the collective bargaining agreement is re-established.
