Dolphins Don’t Want to Mess with Plaxico Burress


Released from prison after 20 months on Monday, free agent wide receiver Plaxico Burress must now wait for the NFL lockout to end to see where the next phase of his life, and NFL career, will unfold.

Even though Burress hasn’t caught a pass in an NFL game since November 16, 2008, agent Drew Rosenhaus expects interest in his client to be high.

“Many teams want him. He will be a top free agent,” Rosenhaus told the Associated Press earlier this week. “He is healthy and ready to go. He will be signed shortly after the lockout ends.”

The Dolphins were one team that was reportedly interested in Burress, but now the Miami Herald reports that’s not the case at all.

“…But I am told by a reliable source the Dolphins are ‘absolutely not’ interested in Burress…So much for that rumor,” stated Dolphins writer Armando Salguero.

Miami still has one of the best playmakers in the game in Brandon Marshall, and combined with Burress it could have given Chad Henne plenty of weapons.

The team must have felt they didn’t want the distraction, and would rather see another team take the issues and press that Burress will bring with him wherever he ends up in 2011.
