I never would have believed it, given the Bears’ propensity to not associate with players that have checkered pasts, but the Plaxico Burress to the Bears talk is heating up.
Through Brad Biggs’ blog, several national analysts state that the Bears are one of three teams with serious interest in Burress.
I’ve made it clear in the past I didn’t want Burress in the 2000 draft, when Mark Hatley tried to trade up and select Burress instead of Brian Urlacher. Every time the wideout has gotten into trouble in his career, I’ve been more and more glad of that.
But if Burress recovers from his self-inflicted gunshot wound to the thigh, if he is not suspended for the entire year by the NFL and if he’s not spending time in a penetentiary, I guess at this point he’d be a nice addition at receiver on a very cheap “prove you’re done with weapons” deal.
What do you think?
