    Steelers reportedly showing interest in Plaxico Burress

    Per Chris Mortenson

    It appears likely that Plaxico Burress will be playing for one of his two former teams, the New York Giants or the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to team and league sources.

    After a dinner with Giants coach Tom Coughlin on Friday night, Burress plans to fly to Pittsburgh to meet with coach Mike Tomlin, sources said.

    Sources believe only a productive, fence-mending meeting between Burress and Coughlin stands between the wide receiver rejoining the Giants and making more than $10 million over two years.

    However, Tomlin expects to make his own strong sales pitch for Burress to join the Steelers, who made him a first-round draft choice out of Michigan State in 2000, sources added.

    I know that WR really isnt a huge need, but personally I'd love to see him back.

    I think this would be a big mistake...prison did not humble him at all. We are blending well as a team and I just think he would be damaging...Just my opinion.

    Bring him on!!! Ben has been asking for a tall wr since Plax left in the first place! Sweed has been a bust so what the hell! I am sure we can get him pretty cheap since he hasn't played in two years. can you imagine wallace and plax at 1 and 2 and ward in the slot! not to mention sanders and brown! I think that would make for a sick core!!!

    Honestly, I would rather see Sweed get another shot. He supposedly looked great in camp last year; I'd love to see if he can do it on the field.

    How can you possibly know that? I've heard good things since he's been out.

    Burress is not going to command a ton of money. He's fresh out of jail and hasn't played in what, 2 years now? If he comes at a fair price, why not bring him on board. Having a monster target like him to compliment our starting 4, and Heath Miller... sure why not if you ask me!

    I agree, if we can get him at the right price i think that would be huge, with him and wallce the oppertunities would be endless in spreading the field!

    We had 6 WRs last season, why can't we do it again? Cut Battle and El, since they are both worthless, use that freed up cap space to sign Burress, and if Sweed shows anything in camp (I still have faith lol), keep him as the 6th WR. Wallace, Ward, Sanders, Brown, Burress, and Sweed. I like it lol.

    This article is kind of what I mean.....he just needed to shush. I haven't heard anything else since but this article kind of rubbed me the wrong way. now he did say he was accountable but.....

    I still have a bad taste in my mouth the way he left the Steelers and things he said.
