Redskins TE Cooley Says Plaxico Burress Worth the Risk

Regardless of what the Redskins do with Donovan McNabb or Albert Haynesworth, they have another glaring deficiency on their team-wide receiver. Sure, they will probably try to re-sign Santana Moss and they drafted some rookies but no one they currently have on their roster exactly screams big-play receiver.

According to Steve Wyche of, Redskins tight end Chris Cooley has a guy in mind he would like to play with on Sundays. Speaking of some of the veteran wide receivers available on Tuesday’s “Cover Two Podcast”, Cooley had this to say:

“It’s tough when you get guys like T.O. or Chad, who have been what they are in the NFL for so long. In my opinion, Plaxico Burress probably is a guy that’s humbled such as Michael Vick was, a lot, in the same situation. If you were going to take a risk on a guy that’s a good player, he’s probably the guy you’re going to take a risk on. “He’ll probably step in a locker room, keep his mouth shut, work hard and try to earn his way back into the league the first season.”
