Default Report: Steelers May have Interest in Plaxico Burress

Here we go again. Jason Cole from Yahoo Sports reported tonight via Twitter that both the Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Giants might have interest in unrestricted free agent Plaxico Burress. Burress signed a one-year deal late last July with the New York Jets after making a free agent visit to Pittsburgh.

If we don't manage to resign Wallace, I could see it, but the release of Hines indicates to me that we're doing everything in our power to keep Mike.

Hah, after all of what happened last year? Why waste our time? Jericho Cotchery, please!

I suspect that cutting Ward may have had more to do with keeping Crotchety. Jerricho may feel like he has a legit shot at #3 now, maybe even #2 if Wallace leaves and Sanders can't stay healthy. Plaxico will never wear a Steelers uniform again.

The one thing I do worry about with Cotchery is his history of drops. He had a team-high nine drops his last year in NY. That's crazy.

He did drop a crucial pass in the playoff game at Denver in the red zone that could have kept a drive going or even gone for a TD. Cotchery is a great guy but sometimes those ugly histories rear their ugly head in crucial situations like playoff games. I would worry about that going forward.

If we lose Wallace I would definitely consider Burress. Ironic for Cotchery though if Burress joins the Steelers and forces him out here. Burress would be the #2 from day one and that would interest Burress in the Steelers. So it's not an impossibility. Plus Burress and Ben back together again. The man would win games for us.

If we can't keep Wallace then it wouldn't be a bad move to get a big red-zone target like that. Even if we lose Cotch and keep Wallace, we could do worse than Plax as our 4th wideout. That being said, I don't see it happening.

How do you remember Cotchery's drop in Denver (which I don't) and not that gritty, miraculous touchdown catch that tied the game? That's when Cotch's value reared its beautiful head.

We wouldn't bring back Plax over Cotchery if Cotch wants to come back. Clearly, the organization was impressed with what Cotchery showed last year. And there's no way that Plax, even if signed, would be put above Sanders on the depth chart. Living in NY, I watched Burress a lot this year and at this stage in his career, he's much better suited to being a #3/red zone guy than he is to being a starter. It'd be incredibly foolish to put a 35-year-old guy who left town 8 years ahead of a young stud on the depth chart.
