I'm not interested in seeing Plaxico Burress back with Steelers

Former Steelers wide receiver Plaxico Burress will be released from jail in a couple days.

That doesn't mean the Steelers should actively pursue Burress once he's free and a deal between the players and owners happens.

I've seen it before.

Burress, as talented as he may be, also is wildly inconsistent. He'll also be 34 years old when a season eventually begins, not exactly his prime as a football player.

Those are just two reasons why.

And I'll give you three more: Mike Wallace, Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown. Those are three young receivers I'm impressed with.

Wallace's contributions have been evident. Sanders and Brown have a bright future in front of them. Then there's that guy who can dance a little, Hines Ward.

The Steelers are fine at receiver. There's no need for Burress to return.

There’s no teaching that’s going to correct it. It just comes down to it’s a physically violent game. Football players are in a car wreck every week.
