    Steelers GM Kevin Colbert shot down speculation that the team may be interested in a reunion with free agent Plaxico Burress.
    "Yeah, not really," replied Colbert when asked about a potential signing. Colbert suggested the Steelers are more likely to be interested in wide receivers available after final cuts in early September.
    It's hip to T-Squared ...

    Well..

    he basically stated that they'd rather look at WR's cut from teams then look at Plax. That about says it all.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Does that make sense though? Ha, Ben called this offense "Rosetta Stone". I mean theres going to be better WRs when the cuts happen but it's going to take them (cut WRs) time to gel and understand the offense, kind of like Cotchery last year

    per Ed Bouchette's twitter:

    Told now that Plaxico Burress is willing to take one-year contract for the veteran minimum to play this year, and that the #Steelers have shown no interest, at least not yet. - about an hour ago

    Putting any personal feelings of Plaxico and his habits of shooting himself in the leg; if the team were to bring him back, do you think he's got anything left in the tank to be an asset?


    Nobody is going to double cover him anymore unless you're in the redzone so it's not like AB or Sanders would necessarily get any relief from that perspective.

    vet min iuts dumb not to bring him in. He can still run, he was reliable with mark ****ing sanchez throwing him the ball, and hes still big and a hell of a blocker. could easily be good for 6-10 TDs

    Where were our problems? Getting TD's in the redzone.
