Vet minimum for him would be about $925k. If he signed for that he would be eligible for a vet exception on the cap which would make his cap hit half that.

Even better. If Cheddar Bomb can contribute, I'd take a flyer on him.

He won't' sign for vet minimum. Maybe he will next year, not this year.

Some team is going to panic in camp, and they'll pay him above vet minimum.

IMO a true WR2 of his size is worth a couple million, I'd worry about needing cap for emergency when emergency occurs. WR2 is shakiest spot we have.

Default Re: Plaxico Burress Rumored to be Considered by Texans?

Well, this much I know:

If any of us think Kubiak & Co. have NOT looked into adding Burress, either last year or as recently as today, we're fooling ourselves.

1. They've checked into it.

2. They aren't moving on Burress yet. Why?

3. He could be added today, tomorrow, next week, or even the days leading up to reg season. Who knows. Until then, 31 other teams are all discussing whether they need Burress or not....and none of them have signed him.

4. Perhaps he isn't signed yet because he is asking more than teams want to pay him? Maybe teams are waiting. Who knows.

So really this is a dead topic. Yeah, we've discussed it. Some say yes, some say no, others don't know. My only two cents into the discussion is that there has to be a financial reason why none of the 32 teams have this guy on their roster yet. Therefore, this whole idea that he'll take the vet minimum and we can handle that vet minimum amount...it's not a good argument, IMO.

To me, last year when he was throwing out the Texans name in every other comment he made to the media...he had that mindset that the Texans were an ATM...the place where guys like Ahman Green go to get royally rich. He signs with the Jets last year, and now he's not mentioning us NOW is he??? That tells me that he's priced himself out of contention here, and he knows it.

We'll never know if that's true, but if he was that pumped up about the prospects of playing here LAST year...then he would have signed with us already even if for only a 1-year deal. I think he's holding out for as much as he can get PLUS not having to report to a team and do all the team stuff (like sweating in the heat of OTAs!).

If he signs here, it will be because he came off his cloud and took less than he was asking. Or...Kubiak flinched first and felt he needed a vet because the rookies are testing his nerves with so much on the line this year.

Default Re: Plaxico Burress Rumored to be Considered by Texans?

An interesting recent radio interview:
Quote:
Plaxico Burress on Teamís Interest in Signing Him: ďItís been there but itís just getting to the right fit.Ē
June 19, 2012 Ė 11:10 am by Chris Fedor

After two years away from the game of football, Plaxico Burress hauled in 45 catches for 645 yards and scored eight touchdowns for the New York Jets last season. However this offseason, Burress has received little to no interest from NFL teams and remains a free agent looking for his next opportunity. While Burress clearly suffered from two seasons away from the game, the 34-year-old receiver showed last year in the Big Apple that he is still a red zone threat because of his size and he still has the ability to do some damage in the passing game in the right situation. When that opportunity presents itself is really anyoneís guess but it looks like the once Super Bowl hero may have to wait for an injury to a wide receiver in a teamís training camp to get his shot, despite his constant begging.

Plaxico Burress joined WFNZ in Charlotte with the Mac Attack to talk about how he feels, whether Carolina would be his preferred destination to play in 2012, why he thinks there has been no interest in him, if he will play with a chip on his shoulder in 2012 given how little interest he has received this offseason, if he thinks he will be better this year than he was last year and what he would say to the people that think he would disrupt the chemistry in a teamís locker room.

How he feels this offseason:


ďI feel great. Last year I was really just trying to get my legs under me from the two year layoff and I think people are going to be surprised by the shape Iím in. I got my spring back and Iím just waiting and I think everyone else will see for themselves.Ē

If Carolina is his preferred destination to play in 2012:


ďNo doubt about it. My brother lives right there in Charlotte, my cousin lives there in Charlotte and all my family is there in Columbia, South Carolina. It would just be a great situation all the way around and being close to everybody. Not just that but playing with Cam (Newton) who I think is one of the top five quarterbacks in all of football and as long as I can remember Steve Smith has been one of my favorites. I just think itís a great situation.Ē

Why he thinks there hasnít been a strong interest in him this offseason:


ďItís been there but itís just getting to the right fit. Iíve been around and I understand the game from a mental standpoint, Iím very knowledgeable about the guys out there that are playing. I know what they do well and what they donít do well and I just want to put myself in a position to go out and have success and to go out and make guys around me better. And obviously play with a quarterback who can really play the position. Itís about me picking my spots and seeing where Iím a good fit. You just look at a situation like Carolina and you canít come across a better situation than that. Playing with Steve Smith, who is a guy that demands a double team, you look at a guy like Greg Olsen getting up and down the seams and you put a guy like me on the back side and teams have trouble saying Ďwho are we going to cover? Who are we going to double?í Iíve been playing this game for a long time and it comes down to matchups. You put guys in one-on-one situations and guys win. Itís a place that I would love to come play and we will see what happens.Ē

Whether he will play with a chip on his shoulder this season towards the Panthers if they donít sign him:

ďNo itís not just directed at one team. When youíre a competitor, when youíre a football player, me I challenge myself to prove to myself that I can still go out and play this game at a high level which I know I can. I went out and scored eight touchdowns last year. Iím going to be better than that this year. Teams havenít seen me, what kind of shape Iím in, havenít seen me workout and all I keep doing is going and going, I have my legs back and everybody is going to be in for a pleasant surprise when I hit the football field this year.Ē

If he thinks he can play better than he did last season:


ďThereís no doubt about it. I did those things on the football field last year after being out of football for two years and I didnít have a preseason, I twisted my ankle the first day of camp, played three quarters of football going into the season after being out for two years and there I am starting on Sunday night playing football with four catches and a touchdown so I feel great. Iím just looking for the opportunity to get back on the field and show that I can still do it and do it at a high level.Ē

What he would say to the people that believe he would disrupt team chemistry:

ďWhen youíre talking about chemistry all I want to do is run up and down the field, catch footballs, score touchdowns, have fun and make an impact, go out and be consistent and help the guys around me. As far as people saying they donít want me to come there because Iím going to mess things up then everyone is entitled to their opinion. They do what they do for a living and I do what I do for a living. You can ask any of the guys Iíve ever played with about being a guy in the locker room that everybody likes and treated everybody the same, thatís who I am. For the people saying those things, maybe they donít know me and being their job and what they do, I donít know them.Ē

At this point, he just wants a job... and to get paid. I bet you could ask him about every single team out there and he'd be able to give you reasons why he'd be a good fit and why he'd like to be there.

I wouldn't hate having him here because I think he'd give us a better season than several of our young guys. I don't think he'd push KW out of the #2 spot.

Ok. Number one. Hate his notorious rep. Number two. Love to have him here to add to WR depth. Number three. He is probably asking for more money than he deserves. He wont sign here because of the money.

How do you know what he's asking? The dude is 34 and had an average season on a team with an average QB. He really shouldn't garner more than vet min plus incentives.

The only thing that worries me, is that he's 35. At that age, you might have it one day, & not the next. If he comes into camp & can still run a 4.5 forty, I'd sign him. But what are the odds......

a 3 or 4.. in this offense? He's not much good for Andre unless he's pushing Walter for playing time...... at #2. If he can't do that, I'd just as soon get the kids (Keshawn & DeVier) out there & let them compete for Walters job.

I agree with that. If Plax can be a true #2 WR for us, that would be like getting Jjo & D-Man all over again.

Heck I'd nominate Rick Smith for exec of the year.

But if we sign him & he ends up with 3-4 WR production...... I'd get the Pink Soap...

Hey my brother, I'm pretty sure the run game is not where we need help. Where need help is another deep threat receiver to take away from double and in times triple teams on Dre...

Is Plax that guy?? I have no idea, but I'm pretty sure his persona as an "alpha dog" falls short of being second fiddle to Dre. Let's look inward to recent draft choices including Jeff Maehl (sp?) or Posey... Yes???

TK... Completely different situations.. At the end of the day, YOU know that. Quit trying to make that comparison!!

Seriously, Plax would be (at best) a third option in this offense and every defense would know it.. That said, it might could open up things..... Highly unlikely though.

The only reason he'd be third on this team, would be if the accusations about Kubiak are true & he goes with KDub for something other than a football reason. Granted Plax can play as well as he did last year.

Was KDub a better receiver than Plax in 2011?

I don't think so & I think we should have got Plax last season. Instead of hoping Jacoby would leap-frog Walter in a pinch.

We'd have been playing Baltimore @ home & Jj would have been running to mama instead of muffing punts.

KDub isn't fast, he isn't tall, doesn't have a knack for getting open. His only selling point is that he blocks as good as Jacoby does except much closer to the LOS.
