Default Use Plaxico Burress more or cut him?

I say we undervalued him. When we did use him he was lights out. I say stick him at 3rd/4th string alongside Sanders and Cotch.

Let him compete in camp. If he comes back in great shape and gives it his all while our young money continue their complacency let him and Cotchery start. Desire > talent any day.

I hope he gets a shot for a spot on the team.

Yup yup. I really think Plax is better than Cotch and Sanders. Hell, give him the 2nd slot if he proves it.

3 receptions for 42 yards in 3 games, lights out? Even Sanders might be able to beat that!

he is a free agent. if he didnt draw attention last year he wont get any this year. he will be a later in free agency signing as he of course will test the market.

14 yards per catch. And he was very good with the Jets. I say give the man his shot.

I dont care if Ben likes him. Burress wasnt much help last season BUT he didnt have a lot of time to do so. I definitely think he should get a shot at making the roster because I do think he can have an impact.

Why don't you care if Ben likes him? Plax is a big target for Ben. That means a lot, in my opinion.
