PLAXICO is the WAY TO GO!
 
The longer Wallace holds out the more likely it is they sign someone especially considering Wallace could hold out until week 11. Their not going into the season with only 3 WRs ready for action. With the 4th being Marquis Maze, Toney Clemons, or Teiler Beiler.


Sign Plaxico Burress.

Burress may not have a 1,000 yard season in him but he will make the catches at the right time and he will win games for us no doubt. His production was OK last year in NY but he had Sanchez throwing to him. You have to assume that production goes up with Ben. Burress as a stop gap until we get a new speed WR is an alright move by me.

Plex in the red zone would be GREAT

It's a great idea but will never happen, the FO has signed some new players with previous off the field issues which is something they never do, but they aren't going to take in a convicted felon.

Personally, don't like it, and don't want him. He is in the mold of other WRs I need not mention that are talented but also bring baggage.

I don't think Plax would want back in.

Then why did they show interest in him before he signed with NYJ? He was even scheduled to visit with the Steelers about possibly returning here before NY swooped in and signed before it could happen.

I, for one, am NOT on the re-sign Plaxico bandwagon. He has too much baggage, not enough production at this point in his career, and he dissed us by not even meeting with the Steelers before signing with the Jets.

Plaxico Burress= :coffee:

for every washed up vet that occupies a roster spot, a guy who may be the next colstin,cruz , or brown gets cut.

I wasn't aware of that, I guess they are getting more leanient. I don't see what "baggage" he brings, he has his prior but that won't cause problems now. I haven't payed much attention to him since he was released, has he had any problems since he's been back? I know the Jets locker room was a mess but I don't recall him being mentioned.

Funny -

I am sitting here watching the NFL Network Yearbook show featuring the 2011 Jets. Plexico caught three TD passes in the fourth game of the season to help beat the Chargers.

Serendipity. . .

There is a reason he is still a free agent, I don't want him...
