Welcome to the board

Almost everyone other than Mike Wallace wants the same money as Antonio Brown - so, yes, you can take my word for it that Sweed wants a $42 million contract (as do I)

No Wallace simply means a roster spot for Derrick Williams, Marquiz Maze, or Tyler Beiler.

And that is the way the Steelers should go. We have "3 vets" in brown Sanders and Cotch. With Cotch developing into a leader. If Wallace wants to sit and sulk so be it. Who knows one of these kids could very well be a diamond in the rough. I like Marquis Maze. At any rate this all could work out very well for the Steelers.

Leave Burress where he belongs.....somewhere else

FWIW Peter King thinks someone should pick up Burress


I think one of the mysteries of this NFL summer is the continuing unemployment of Plaxico Burress. The man's good enough to contribute to an NFL winner, and at the right price ($1.5 million a year plus a heavy incentive for eight touchdowns is what I'd offer). I believe strongly he'd win a game for a playoff contender this year.

Now that training camp has started I can resume my Monday morning ritual of reading King's MMQB column - i posted 4 nuggets from today's column

we have enough talent without Wallace IMHO

Now, if we didn't have Cotch or Sanders quality, then maybe . . .

I believe I recall there was some chirping from him during the Jets locker room meltdown. I know I read/heard something last season that made me glad we didn't pick him back up.

I just think he's a knucklehead and his potential bad outweighs his actual good. I'd rather get Heath back in the mix in the endzone than bring a potential cancer into the locker room.

I wrote Plax off as a "never again" when he mouthed off to the press after we lost the 2004 AFCC to the Patsies. He had the nerve to say something to the effect of:

"We lost because they did not give me the ball more."

He was promptly shown the door by the Rooney's shortly after.

Holmes and Burress allegedly did not like the play calling that was preventing them from being All-Pro and complained about it last October

The (New York) Daily News reported Sunday that WRs Plaxico Burress, Santonio Holmes and Derrick Mason have individually complained to coach Rex Ryan about OC Brian Schottenheimer's play selection.

http://content.usatoday.com/communit...-playcalling/1

FWIW the departure of Burress has not had any apparent impact on Santonio's attitude - this from Peter King's MMQB this morning

"We brought Santonio here to be a receiver, not offensive coordinator."

-- Jets coach Rex Ryan, on wide receiver Santonio Holmes' public skepticism on the chances a two-quarterback system (Mark Sanchez/Tim Tebow) will work with the Jets.

Thank you, Dan. I knew I'd heard something to that effect last year. It's nice to know my Alzheimer's isn't full blown yet.

He's just more headache than he's worth, IMHO.
