If he's cheap and Ben actually targets him in the red zone, I have no issue with this.

Always want him back at 1 year league minimum deal (or close to). He will be a good red zone/ third down target.

Plaxico gets another chance in Pittsburgh

Posted by Mike Florio on March 12, 2013



Last year, receiver Plaxico Burress languished on the open market for months. He eventually signed with the Steelers in November, appearing in four games with three starts.

This year, Burress wonít be hanging around.

Burress has agreed to terms to return to the Steelers, per a source with knowledge of the situaiton.

Terms of the deal arenít yet known. Chances are that the salary is at the veteran minimum, possibly with incentives based on his performance and playing time.

Burress started his career as a first-round pick in Pittsburgh. After five seasons with the Steelers, he joined the Giants. In November 2008, he fired a bullet through his leg in a Manhattan nightclub and ultimately went to prison for carrying an unregistered concealed weapon in New York.

Release in the summer of 2011, Burress signed with the Jets after the lockout, catching eight touchdown passes in 16 games. Last year, he managed three receptions for 42 yards and a touchdown.

I'm digging this, as long as they give him a bigger role/target him more this year.

Good signing, but as others have pointed out the WR corps still needs one more [young] guy.
