    I'd be absolutely fine with us pursuing him, but you always hear that Mr. Mcnair places such high importance on character. Maybe he's worked on himself and can give a good interview to convince him he isnt a liability. Either way he would make our offense easily the most threatening in the entire league.

    What kind of football shape is he in? If he stayed in great shape and agrees to a work out. I'd give him a look.

    I heard the Giants might be interested in resigning him.

    At 6-5 / 235, Burress is AJ-eque in numbers. He's apparently maintained his body in prison.

    With AJ and Burress on opposite ends, the only likely guns to crop up would be those pointing at the heads of the opposing secondaries.

    That's the word. His teammates want him back so I would give him a shot. I highly doubt they will ever get back the Plax from 2007.

    Keep in mind that prior to this stupid (stupid on his part) gun incident, Burress had no criminal record.....nor did he have any history of being "mischievous."

    If you remember, he told the manager of the club that he was carrying the gun to protect himself (because he was stupid enough to have flashy jewelry hanging from his neck and every appendage and carrying large wads of cash). He could very well have gotten ALL the STUPID out of himself in one fell swoop...........Of course, memory of prison life could be a major factor in believing that he can sustain "keeping hope alive."

    I would love it if the Texans gave him a look, but I think he'll end up in NY. Then again, Bob does background checks that go back to your daycare records, lol, so the gun thing automatically puts Plax on the "it aint happening" list.

    I've read that his preference would be closer to home........Florida (not NY).
