Default Coaches want Plex?

I don't buy it.

The Pittsburgh Steelers coaches are interested in signing free-agent WR Plaxico Burress (Giants) but it would depending on his asking price.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ OUR VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

The coaching staff may want Burress back, but they could get resistance from the Rooney family. The Steelers have a good group of young receivers behind Hines Ward, but need a big red zone threat like Burress.
I would find it more believable if it said Ben wanted Plex. I really doubt
the coaches are all that interested, knowing he was kind of a head
case. He could be a new man after jail, but who knows. He certainly
said the right things in the interview I watched.

Maybe Arians was chanelling his inner Ben? But regardless Colbert and the Rooney's wouldn't let it happen.

Was he working out in prison? Michael Vick sure was. I don't see what he did as morally wrong. Just dumb. No need to take a gun into a club when you have friends that are 250+ lbs.

I think Plax could better the Offense... I hope they make a play for him.

With Arians wanting Ben to toss the rock around more and the last time Plax played for us, he complained that we didn't throw enough, he might be interested in becoming a Steeler again. I would love to see him back as a Steeler. He was young and selfish then but at 34, i'm sure he's more mature now.
