    Analyst: Chargers should consider Burress
    June, 13, 2011
    By Bill Williamson


    On ESPN’s “NFL Live” earlier Monday, analyst Tim Hasselbeck listed the San Diego Chargers as one of the teams that should consider signing receiver Plaxico Burress, who was recently was released from prison.

    Does it make sense?

    First of all, he will be 34 and he has missed the past two NFL seasons. I’m not sure San Diego general manager A.J. Smith would be interested. Smith has often stayed away from players with character issues.

    Plus, depending on the rules of free agency, the Chargers could have Vincent Jackson and Malcom Floyd as their starting receivers. If that doesn’t develop, San Diego would be on the lookout for a receiver. The Chargers reportedly are planning to monitor Carolina veteran receiver Steve Smith after the lockout. Smith could potentially be made available through a trade.

    If the Chargers were looking for a veteran, Burress could be a better fit than Smith, scheme wise. He is 6-foot-5, 230 pounds. Smith is 5-foot-9. The Chargers prefer bigger receivers and Burress could look good in San Diego’s receivers’ meeting room.

    Still, I would be surprised if San Diego makes Burress a priority when free agency begins unless it expects big changes at the position.

    I want no part. The dude is already 34.

    And don't forget Vick (at 29) sucked his first year back, he was noticably slower. Burress will get 1 shot somewhere and blow it, and even if he does return to 75% of what he was by 2012 at 35 he'll be a short term bandaide.

    Hmmmm .... I suppose that since he's tall & fairly big, he just automatically becomes a San Diego-type of WR, right?

    Some insight there. No thanks to Plax - that ship has sailed.

    In California, do you need to have a gun licence in order to shoot yourself accidentely in the balls?

    Non-issue. No way AJ ever picks up a guy who hasn't taken a firearms safety class.
