Plaxico is the true one-trick pony here. He's a tall guy who might be able to catch a fade pass in the red zone. He doesn't have any semblence of speed, don't run particularly crisp routes, and won't be able to get separation on more athletic corners who are a decade or more his junior. Don't get me wrong...with Brown and Cotchery hurting right now, its a solid signing this late in the season. But if Wallace, Brown, Sanders, and Cotchery are all healthy once again in the near future? Plaxico would be our #5 option (and likely a healthy inactive on gamedays in favor of someone who plays special teams).
IMO, Burress was never as good as Wallace. Never.
