Veteran wide receiver Plaxico Burress wants to try out for the Miami Dolphins, but the team is not interested right now, reports the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson.

Miami general manager Jeff Ireland told reporters the team "could be done" adding players at receiver but left open the possibility of adding a veteran later in the offseason. Free agent Burress is looking to catch on with another team after playing last year with the New York Jets. He caught 45 passes for 612 yards and eight touchdowns.
