I think that after signing Cedrick "the Entertainer" Wilson there is zero to no chance of Burress coming back. I think whatever Wilson lacks in size compared to Plax he more than makes up in speed, hands and route-running.
I also believe we will all be pleasantly surprised by Wilson's production and by this time next year we'll be asking "Plax who....?"
