Good article this morning in the New York Post by Brian Costello on how the New York Jets got Plaxico Burress:

Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum stared at the fax machine waiting for it to ring.
It was now late Saturday night or early Sunday morning, depending on your perspective. Tannenbaum and his staff had been working around the clock with little sleep for days, yet no one needed a caffeine boost at this moment.
They were waiting for Plaxico Burress’ signature to appear, a fax that could change the course of the 2011 season for the Jets. After laying the groundwork in a meeting two years earlier and a frantic final few hours, all they could do was wait.
That layover in Los Angeles could change Jets history.
