Plaxico Burress, the veteran wide receiver recently released from prison, said on “The Carmen, Jurko and Harry Show” on ESPN 1000 via the Chicago Tribune the Bears are on his list of the top three teams he’d like to play for next season.
“Oh without question, without a doubt,” Burress said. “My decision making is going to come down to what I said, playing with an elite quarterback, playing with a running game, playing with a great tight end, and Greg Olsen is already that guy. In my estimation, he’ll be a Pro Bowler this season.”
Burress added that Bears fans have reached out to him on Twitter, asking him to make Solider Field his new home.
“It’s just been love,” Burress said. “And that’s what I love about the whole situation. Any city that you go to, you want to be embraced by the fans and by the city. And that really plays a lot into the decision making, going into a great organization.
“As a player you just want to be embraced. That’s what I love about Chicago fans, they’re passionate about football, they’re passionate about their sports, their passionate about their basketball. It’s one of the best cities in the world.”
