AFC North Poll: Plaxico in Pittsburgh?
By James Walker
We have an interesting development coming out of Pittsburgh, right before the Steelers get set to open training camp on Friday.
ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the Steelers are in pursuit of controversial free-agent receiver Plaxico Burress, who was released from prison earlier this summer. Mortensen reports Steelers coach Mike Tomlin will meet with Burress later this week.
In our latest SportsNation poll, we ask Steeler Nation: Is this a good idea? Does Pittsburgh need Burress, who is a 34-year-old receiver who hasn't played since 2008?
Or would Burress help take Pittsburgh's offense to the next level? He had a decent start to his career with the Steelers and a good rapport with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. This would allow Burress to come full circle for his career.
Cast your vote on whether or not Burress and Pittsburgh are a good fit. You can also share your thoughts in the comment section below.
