Report: Burress may sign with Steelers

The SportsXchange

Free agent wide receiver Plaxico Burress, who has been trying all season to find a team that would sign him, may be signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Burress, 35, is expected to travel to Pittsburgh to take a physical, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Monday, and Schefter figures the Steelers probably would not be bringing Burress in for a physical if they did not intend to sign him.

The Steelers have injury problems at wide receiver, and Burress played his first five NFL seasons with the Steelers.

Burress then played for the Giants for four years before missing two seasons (2009 and 2010) while in prison for illegally possessing a firearm.

He played for the Jets last season, starting 13 games and catching 45 passes for 612 yards and eight touchdowns.

He has not played for anyone this season, though.
