    Q: What did Plaxico Burress say when the Steelers offered to pick him up at the airport and give him a ride to team HQs?

    A: “Only if I can ride shotgun!”

    Plaxico Burress to visit Steelers

    Updated: November 19, 2012
    ESPN.com news services

    Free-agent wide receiver Plaxico Burress is expected to visit with the Pittsburgh Steelers and take a physical with his former team, a league source told ESPN Monday.

    Burress traveled to Pittsburgh on Monday and will visit with the team Tuesday, according to the source.

    Burress played last season with the New York Jets after spending nearly two years in prison for illegal possession of a firearm.

    Despite missing the 2009 and 2010 seasons, Burress was productive with the Jets, hauling in 45 receptions and eight touchdowns. But the 35-year-old has remained unsigned throughout this season despite reportedly drawing interest from multiple teams.

    The 6-foot-5 Burress would significantly bolster an injury-plagued receiving corps in Pittsburgh (6-4, second in the AFC North). Starting wideout Antonio Brown has missed the past two games due to a sprained ankle, and Jerricho Cotchery also was injured late in Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

    The eighth overall selection in the 2000 NFL draft, Burress spent his first five seasons with the Steelers before signing as a free agent with the New York Giants in 2005.

    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.
