Bears Reportedly Not Interested in Plaxico Burress


On Tuesday Plaxico Burress said that the Bears are one of the top three teams he is considering signing with once the NFL labor woes are resolved.

Chicago Tribune beat writer Vaughn McClure reports that the Bears aren’t interested in Plaxico’s services. It’s “not happening,” says beat writer Vaughn McClure.

“No matter how much he adores them.” The Bears reportedly came to this conclusion after doing “extensive research” on Burress before he went to prison two years ago. That stance hasn’t changed since, even if Plax is willing to sign on the cheap.

    ARE THE BEARS CRAZY HERE…. For one we are not looking at the same plex he has come out of jail with a new look on how he wants to be as a person and to the nfl he will be ready and willing to prove a lot of people wrong he’ll have a edge and something to prove not signing him to and already ready to win a superbowl bears will be a mistake as u heard he wants to come here and we can use him in a receiver core that is small but great we need someone who can poss a threat in the red zone and down the field for that matter ya dont get me wrong i love the receivers we have but we as so need someone to take some of the focus off of them as well plex will come cheap and will be willing to put in the work i think as a bears fan we need to be doing everything we can to get over that hump to get back to the superbowl and for that we need some body that can threaten the red zone sure moss would be a good addition but again he’s small we already have a receiver in moss in earl we need some one who can press the corners and im sorry a 6’5 receiver is always a better choice can u picture plex , hester , knox , earl and olsen with a receiver / running back out the back field in forte i can smell the superbowl ring from here it’s a no brainer make the deal

    Plaxico doesn’t fit Martz’s system. However, Santonio Holmes and Santana Moss do.
