Former wide receiver Plaxico Burress visited with the Steelers Saturday, but the team’s level of interest in him is unclear, although Steelers GM Kevin Colbert does say that the Steelers “are interested.”
I’m really, really sick of writing about this, since the amount of impact Burress will have for the Steelers on the field is likely to be zero, or close to it, but hey. Burress ate lunch with several veteran Steelers, including Ben Roethlisberger and Hines Ward.
Ed Bouchette reports that Burress isn’t likely to sign with the New York Giants, who he has also visited. Also, the New York Jets and San Francisco 49ers have emerged as potential suitors.
Also visiting Steelers camp on Saturday was former Patriots tight end Daniel Graham, who could replace Matt Spaeth as the Steelers’ second tight end. Graham is 32 and had 18 catches for 148 yards for the Broncos last season.
