Burress eyeing Tampa Bay
Posted Jun. 17 at 03:30 AM
Plaxico Burress is interested in playing for Tampa Bay, according to a report in the St. Petersburg Times.
Burress, writes Stephen F. Holder, has contacted current Bucs Derrick Ward and Antonio Bryant and says he's interested in joining the team.
Tampa Bay already has Bryant and Kellen Winslow as pass catchers, but it could use another threat. Michael Clayton projects to be their other starting receiver, but he's struggled in recent years.
New coach Raheem Morris isn't ruling out a play for Burress.
"He's a great player," Morris said. "Any time you get a chance to add a great player to your team, you definitely have got to have some sort of interest. We don't know what's going on with his legal problems, we don't know what's going on with the suspensions in the league. Until we get all that stuff resolved, it's not even worth talking about."

Burress will face felony gun possession charges after the season, but he appears to be in the clear to play 16 games this season. The only thing potentially stopping him would be a league suspension, but Roger Goodell may opt to wait to address the Burress situation until after it's been addressed in court.
