@AdamSchefter: Filed to ESPN: Free-agent WR Plaxico Burress is expected to go to Pittsburgh to meet with and take a physical for the Steelers. Need WR help

Looks like with AB out and the injury to Cotch, we are definitely in need of another WR. Love this. Hope it happens. Been lobbying to get Plax back here for a while.

This doesn't say much about the potential return of AB. If Plax is coming for a physical then a deal is already in the works.

Depending on what kind of shape he is in, could help.

What a year for injuries for the Steelers! My wife blames the Steelers saying it is bad Karma for cutting Hines Ward. I thought she was nuts, but uh, there might be something to this.

Ed Reed was suspended for next weeks game vs SD in SD. Not a cakewalk for the rats. . .could make up a game as long as the Steelers take care of business.

I like this move, I bet it pained Goodell to do this to his SB team.

It's the three strikes rule. 3 of these offenses over the last three years, 1 game suspension. It wasn't solely the hit on Sanders. That was just the last strike. It was like Harrison last season.

Oh and Plax was trying to get signed somewhere the last couple months saying he's in fantastic shape.

@AdamSchefter: Feeling always has been that the Steelers wouldn't bring WR Plaxico Burress to Pittsburgh if the team didn't intend to sign him.

Why hasn't Plax been signed? There are several teams that are in desperate need of a Wr. His old jets maybe at the top.

Why would anyone think Plax is a good fit for the Steelers? If he had anything to offer he'd be on a team already. There's a reason he's out of work.

The jets have too much media power as it is. I believe had they not made the moves this off season they did, Plax would be playing there..

45 catches, 612 yards, 8 TDs... Great redzone target. Still a big, strong 6'5" that can go up and pluck the ball.

What do we have to lose? So what, he might suck. He might not. It is not like they can go to Wide Receiver Mart and pick up a new WR and some beef jerky while standing in line reading the NFL Inquirer.

Wow..

I'm with Blitz in that AB must really be in bad shape. Well, looking on the bright side, Plex will be a hell of a red zone target. And lord knows we need to convert more TD's down there. What a weird season.

Definitely. I'll tell you what though, I can't wait to see Ben chucking it to big #80 when he's healthy lol. Talk about reminiscing lol.

I just have flashbacks of the reunion with Randle El that didn't work so well. Though Plax is a much better red zone target/overall receiver, lol.

I'm on board for signing Plax if it does happen. He can only help and if it
doesn't pan out then,see ya later,thanks for stopping in.....
I'm curious as to why so many teams passed on bringing him in though.:thinking:

The more I think about this I'm starting to like what Plaxico brings to the table. If Cotchery is going to miss significant time then I'm all for this. It would be nice to see him out there again wearing black and gold

What is the workout? Someone shoot something and see now high he jumps or spikes the ball before being tackled? Ok I am bitter..

That fade on 3rd and two probably would have worked a lot better had it been thrown to Plax. I mean we're down to our 3rd and maybe soon to be fourth QB we need some one with a wider catching radius. I mean their accuracy only gets worst going down the list of QB's left out there , atleast they'll have someone they can just throw it up to if he gets a one on one matchup.

Plax knows this is likely his last chance to play in the NFL. If he comes in I expect him to keep his mouth shut, play the best he can when given the opportunities and just do his best to help us win as many as we can. If he is successful maybe somebody picks him up in a backup role in 2013 for a year or two before he calls it a career.

Man I remember when we drafted him, he was larger than life, literally. I remember Hines being pretty upset when the Steelers let him, Plax, go.

Real Deal Steel

If he can just be that beast we need in the red zone, then he'll be worth the money.

If he commands a double team in the red zone, he opens it up big time for Miller and Wallace. Well, if Wallace decides he wants to play that particular day. :rolleyes:

We have a QB at the moment (BATCH). The most pressing issue right now is getting a quality starting WR so the Steelers can continue their run for a playoff spot and then start looking for a backup QB.

I would think it would be #80. Mike Wallace already wears #17.

Of course. Anytime guy gets a "mild" ankle sprain and is confident he'll be back "soon" it turns out to be a nagging problem for the rest of the season.
