There’s a name among the free agent wide receiver list that in years past would have drummed up a ton of interest from teams. Plaxico Burress is no longer one of the NFL’s top wide receivers.
Burress isn’t even in the league right now, but he’d like for that to change.
Burress didn’t play at all in 2013 after having rotator cuff surgery before the season. The 36-year-old Burress thinks he can come back and play.
“I am going to treat it as I am coming back to play. I am going to keep that mindset until they tell me otherwise. I am going to keep going until I can’t go anymore. The stronger I can get, I can come back and play. I want to come back and play,” Burress said, via the team’s website. “Nobody wants to leave via injury. I am too much of a competitor to go out on that note. I am going to attack it and compete. I am going to train and rehab that way. I am approaching it with a business mind. I want to help the Steelers get to the ultimate goal, and that is winning a championship. That is why we work so hard when nobody is watching.”
