Report: Steelers may consider signing Plaxico Burress

With restricted free agent Mike Wallace still unwilling to sign his contract tender, Pittsburgh may turn to a familiar wide receiver for help at the position.

Plaxico Burress could be one possibility for the Steelers, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reporter Ed Bouchette writes.

"Plaxico Burress has a big back tax bill. He is unemployed. The #Steelers need a wide receiver to replace Mike Wallace. I'm told Burress wants 'too much money' but something has to give and it doesn't look as though Wallace will give in any time soon. "

The 34-year-old Burress spent the first five seasons of his career with the Steelers. Last season with the Jets, Burress caught 45 passes for 612 yards and eight touchdowns.

Wallace, 26, made the Pro Bowl last season after catching 72 passes for 1,193 yards. He wants a long-term deal and has refused to sign his non-guaranteed offer for $2.742 million. There has reportedly been no contact between the two sides.
