Plaxico Burress, who caught the winning pass to end the Patriots’ shot at a perfect season in the 2008 Super Bowl, will work out for the team on Sunday, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Burress, who turned 35 on Sunday, has not worked out with any other team this offseason.
He finished with 45 catches for 612 yards and eight touchdowns last year in his first season with the Jets.
Burress missed the 2009 and 2010 seasons while serving prison time for violating New York gun laws after he shot himself in the leg in a crowded nightclub.
He played the first five years of his career with the Steelers and four more with the Giants.
If he signs, Burress would join a large crop of wideouts in Patriots camp, including Donte Stallworth, Deion Branch, Brandon Lloyd, Jabar Gaffney, Julian Edelman and Wes Welker.
