Plaxico Burress officially signs with Steelers

Wide receiver Plaxico Burress has officially signed with the Steelers, reports the Washington Post.

Injuries to Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich have the Pittsburgh Steelers scrambling at quarterback and at wide receiver, so the team signed Brian Hoyer and Plaxico Burress today.

Burress was taken in the first round of the 2000 draft (eighth overall) by the Steelers. He played for the Jets last season after spending nearly two years in jail for illegal possession of a firearm.
