    I say "No"... Here's some reasoning towards that decision that seems rather sound IMO...

    Pittsburgh's interest in Burress is curious, to say the least.

    First, the Steelers have plenty of depth at receiver. Burress, at best, would be a No. 3 receiver behind starters Mike Wallace and Hines Ward. Burress, who is 34 and hasn't played since 2008, also would have to beat out up-and-coming receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown for playing time.

    Second, Pittsburgh doesn't have cap room to spare. The team began the week about $10 million over and that number will increase later this week when they sign top cornerback Ike Taylor and kicker Shaun Suisham. Burress probably won't come cheap. Therefore, if Pittsburgh adds him to the roster, that would mean even more significant cuts across the board for the Steelers to get under the cap.

    Stranger things have happened, but adding another receiver isn't a big need for the Steelers. Pittsburgh's limited dollars this summer could be better spent elsewhere, such as depth on the offensive line or at cornerback.

    Dump ARE and give Plax his deal. I don't think we need him at all but if they can work everything else out and bring Plax in to camp then I am more than fine with it.

    Part of the Steelers interest may be because of Sanders' two foot surgeries.

    I'm againt signing Plax because I dont see what he adds and personally I see perhaps a situation like brinigng in Randel El last year where it doesnt help but it eats valuable cap space that we could instead use on a better player somewhere else.

    Plax hasnt played in a couple of seasons and is old like Ward who is a good 2 steps slower than he was in 2008. He's not going to cost as little as a Manny Sanders, so I really don't see any value whatsoever in Plaxico Burress nor do I see him being an upgrade or helpful peice for our passing game which will possibly take a big hit if Willie Colon is in charge of blockingn for it

    Why not? He would fit in perfectly with all of the rumors and some fan demands to see us bring in a smaller, scat back type to balance out a backfield that doesn't need balanced and provide Ben with an RB that can catch passes that Ben doesn't like to throw
