Plaxico Burress


Oh God, It Looks Like The Steelers Are Actually Going To Sign Plaxico Burress

Look, we knew the Steelers were desperate for quarterbacking help after losing both Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich to injury. But Plaxico Burress? OK, fine, kidding. Burress is strictly a receiver. But that didn’t make us any less surprised that the Steelers are reportedly bringing him on board after watching him work out. Maybe the really surprising thing, though, was that Burress hadn’t found any work before this.


Plaxico Burress To Visit Quarterback-Starved Steelers, But It Sort Of Makes Sense

With Antonio Brown and Jerricho Cotchery dinged up, the Steelers are looking to bring back an old face to boost their depleted receiving corps as they make a playoff push. Yes, Plaxico Burress, he of shooting-himself-in-the-leg-fame, is expected to visit and take a physical with the Steelers. That’s all well and good, but just one question: Who’s gonna be throwing to him? Me?

Hey Dude, Remember That Time We Won The Super Bowl? That Was Pretty Sweet, Right?

On Saturday, for the first time since Plaxico Burress went to prison in 2009, he saw Eli Manning. Their first meeting was supposed to take place the following Monday, on the field, but they just so happened to run into each other at a movie theater. There, according to Burress, they “talked a little while.” We’re guessing it was a quick conversation, since Eli probably wanted a good seat for The Smurfs (badum-ching!).

“My Jeans Are Wet”: The Best Parts Of Plaxico Burress’ HBO Real Sports Interview

In addition to recounting the night a gun went off in his pants (“I had some Chuck Taylors on, the white ones…[they were] all red”), Burress discussed his love of NYC politics (“Who is Mayor Bloomberg?”), how he doesn’t take any shit from anybody (“I don’t take no shit from nobody”), and that, really, he’s already pretty content with life, and anything else that happens is icing on the cake (clearly he’s hungry, Jets fans!).
