Without going into the specifics, should this be an option for the Washington Redskins?Plaxico Burress has been in prison for the better part of the last two years on gun charges he face while a member of the New York Giants. In less than a month, Burress will be a free man, and when he is should the Redskins go after him?
Assuming everything fell into place, the Redskins should absolutely go after him. The Giants released the wide receiver in April 2009, and barring a suspension from the league, he will be available for services.
We have discussed in lengths on the troubles facing the wide receiver group, adding Burress would significantly add a dynamic that would instantly give credibility to this offense. With a proven quarterback and experienced wide receiver in Santana Moss, potentially opposite to him, this would raise the Skins stock several notches.
