Should the Colts Make a Run at Plaxico Burress?

After being released by the Giants, where the hell will Plaxico Burress go now? I got an answer, the Indianapolis Colts. Yes, I know. A lot people might be thinking, “J.D., are you serious? Plaxico Burress in a COLTS UNIFORM!”

But I do have a few reasons why Plax should be a Colt. And here they are:

Could he be the replacement for Marivn Harrison? Can he possibly be better than Marvin Harrison? Now that I really don’t see Marvin coming back to the Colts, or going to any other team, what should the Colts decide to do? If they don’t get a receiver at all in the off-season, it will be tough.

Marvin has been so productive but now that he is aging, his productivness is fading away. Now the Colts need a new receiver. How can you deny the size? At 6’5″ and 232 pounds, he is also fast and can catch.

If the Colts get Burress, then they don’t have to waste a draft pick on a wide receiver. Then the Colts can get James Laurinaitis in the NFL draft. That would be swell. Peyton can also have another good target to help out Reggie Wayne and Anthony Gonzalez.

The Colts have a huge shot of getting Plaxico. They have gotten a gift. Now use it. If they got him, it would be just like last year. I was hoping the Colts would get Mike Hart, and they did. They just got lucky. And now they can get lucky once more.

The Colts could be a dominant team with Plaxico. He will be the tallest receiver for the team, and that is a good thing. With the same height as Peyton Manning, Manning will find another new target. Better than Marvin and Reggie.

You’ll be seeing more dazzling numbers. The Colts receivers aren’t that tall. Right now, their tallest one is Roy Hall at 6’3″. But he may be cut from the team this year. Roy Hall isn’t even ready to play, I bet.

The Colts have so many receivers to choose from, but now they have the right one: Plaxico Burress.

If they get Plax, the Colts’ Super Bowl run is back!

    Unless you know something we don’t? Plax will have to do at least 12 months of jail. There is no way around it. Then risk being suspended by Roger for at least 6 games.

    WOW! I like that notion of Plax teaming up with Manning & Co. I wonder if Peyton would be able to sprak a maturity in Plax. I think staying with in the NFC east for Plax is another option.

    I think this is a great question worth asking. However, this would be a lot of money for a player the Colts did not draft, which is not something this team normally does. I would also be interested to see where Torry Holt goes…

    Okay, I’m going to try not to insult you, but this is off the charts “never gonna happen”-type stuff. Waaay beyond unrealistic. Leaving aside the very obvious issue of the Colts never sniffing guys that have character issues like the ones Plax has, there are three other reasons it’ll never happen:

    1) Lack of money is an issue.
    2) There isn’t enough money.
    3) We don’t have the money.

    We’ve barely got the cash to sign our draft picks and collegiate free agents. Besides that, I don’t want a chump like Burress on my team, no matter what his numbers look like.

    What part about Salary Cap do you not understand? Not trying to be rude, but do some research before you shoot off shit like this.
