Free-agent wide receiver Plaxico Burress recently signed a one-year deal with the New York Jets on Sunday.
The deal is worth $3 million, according to a video on the National Football League Web site.
Burress, who used to play for the New York Giants, missed the last two seasons because he was serving a 20-month prison sentence on gun charges.
The controversial wide receiver last month said he was going to meet with his former coach Tom Coughlin about potentially returning to the Giants, but new league rules don't allow free agents to meet with teams, according to ESPN.
Burress,33, and Coughlin have had a difficult relationship.
"My situation in New York, me and my coach had an ambivalent relationship to say the least," Burress said at the National Urban League headquarters where he held a press conference to promote gun safety, as reported by ESPN. "Some things that I didn't agree with, with the way he went about things. And the only way to show my way was to just rebel. Is that who I am? No."
