Will Plaxico Burress End Up with the Dolphins in 2011?


According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, there are three potential landing spots for former Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress: Rams (rejoin Steve Spagnuolo), Dolphins (Brandon Marshall concerns) and Jets (3 Free agent WRs).

1. The Rams – They need a playmaker for Sam Bradford moving forward, and it looks like if they don’t get Burress, they may target Randy Moss. The Rams were a game away from making the playoffs a season ago, and adding Burress could be the thing that puts them over the top as the best team in the NFC West.

2. The Dolphins – Miami is another team that could use a playmaker at WR, and with the questions surrounding the recent domestic issues with Brandon Marshall, the team may need someone to fill the void. If the Dolphins can sign him, they become an immediate threat to the Pats and Jets in the division, and combined with Marshall they could be the best set of pass catchers in the AFC.

3. The Jets – An obvious choice for Burress, going back to the big lights in New York playing for a players coach in Rex Ryan. The Jets have been one step away from the Super Bowl the past two seasons, and adding Burress and putting him with maybe Santonio Holmes (allowing Braylon Edwards to go elsewhere) gives them a solid combo at WR. One downfall might be being in NY, where the issues that sent him to prison happened.

My Choice: I like St.Louis. As I stated, Bradford needs a playmaker, and that WR core is in the worst shape of the three, and not only could they use a Burress, they really NEED a Burress. I like the fact Burress has history with Steve Spagnuolo, and think playing in a division like the NFC West he could shine and maybe even lead the team in catches and yards in helping the Rams reach the playoffs.
