Special Monday edition:

Tad asks if the Raiders should go after free-agent receiver Plaxico Burress:

BW: Like you Tad, I've heard his agent say there are two teams interested in the former Giants star. The Jets are one of the teams but the other team is a mystery. I wonder if it is Oakland. I don't know if the Raiders should go that route because they are trying to add players without issues. Burress comes with a load of issues. Yes, he'd help on the field, but the Raiders should resist the temptation.


Thom from Las Vegas wants to know if there is any news on a possible league suspension for Denver star receiver Brandon Marshall:

BW: Not yet. A decision could come at any time. Marshall, who had a one-game suspension last year, was arrested earlier this offseason after a dispute with his fiancée. However, charges were quickly dropped. At this point, whether Marshall is suspended is a guessing game.


Ryan from New Jersey wonders if Jarvis Moss will be a factor in Denver as a 3-4 linebacker.

BW: I have my doubts. He ran with the third-string linebacking crew in a minicamp this year. I just don't think Moss is in the team's plans. I know there was, at least, one team that Denver called in both the sixth and seventh rounds of the April draft offering Moss. At this point, the No. 17 overall pick of the 2007 draft looks like a colossal bust.
