I'm really surprised by this. The last time we spoke of Plax returning to Pittsburgh, I didn't think there was any way the Steelers would bring him back. I thought he burned his bridges behind him.

That being said, I'm not sure how I feel now. I'm sort of indifferent about it, but yet have a very bad feeling at the same time.

Visiting Burress makes sense for Steelers

NOV 19
By Jamison Hensley | ESPN.com

There's depth concerns for the Pittsburgh Steelers beyond the quarterback position. With Antonio Brown and Jerricho Cotchery injured, the Steelers are eyeing a reunion with Plaxico Burress to help out at wide receiver.

Burress, 35, who played for the Steelers from from 2000 to 2004, is expected to go to Pittsburgh to take a physical for the Steelers. This is the right move by the Steelers, and I'm surprised that Burress is still available.

If nothing else, he will be a big target in the red zone. The 6-foot-5 Burress caught eight touchdowns last season. The knock on Burress is he doesn't get separation anymore. Still, he had 45 catches last season from Mark Sanchez, so that tells me he can be productive with most quarterbacks. Plus, the Steelers have speed with Sanders and Mike Wallace. Burress can complement them.

There was talk that the Steelers were interested in signing Burress in training camp when Wallace was a holdout. But Burress reportedly wanted too much money. Now, over halfway through the season, Burress needs a job and the Steelers need a productive receiver. It makes sense for the Steelers to sign Burress if he passes the physical.

You never know.. Look at what Danario Alexander is doing after being signed mid-season. I realize he is a young guy who was unproven before being signed. Maybe a reunion with Ben is just what Burress needs to make a difference at this point in his career.

Plax and Heath in the redzone will be hell on secondaries.

It doesn't surprise me that we are looking for another WR, I don't see Wallace being here after this year if he continues to play like this. Plus our WR's couldn't get open AT ALL last night without Brown. I don't think anybody gets cut though, won't we just be de-activating Leftwich and Gilreath? I'm no expert on contracts and rosters, but either way I kind of like the idea this time around even though I despised it last time.

cutting isn't going to be the problem, stopping is...

I'm 100% for this move, our WR's lack size, he'd be good in the red zone. He can still play quality ball
