Plaxico Burress: viable option, or over the hill?

Plaxico has no suitors at the moment and in all likelihood he will be signed the instant somebodies WR gets injured.

When you consider our depth/issues at the WR position you have to wonder why we haven't picked this guy up. Sidney Rice is coming off multiple injuries and surgeries, as usual. Big, make that Real Big Mike Williams seems to have discovered Dick's burgers cost half as much as in/out burgers thus you can eat twice as many for the same price. He also is coming off injuries and didn't produce last year. Doug Baldwin could have a sophomore slump, but will probably just bee a fantastic slot receiver for all of eternity, in the mold of the great Bobby Ingram. Obumanu is a known commodity at this point; two or three great plays every other game when he gets in there as a #4wr.

The rest of the bunch are develop mental guys we all have high, high hopes for. At this point I would have to put them all in the same category as Alex Bannister and Jordan Kent. I watched a video of Durham at Seahawks Draft Blog the other day and I didn't see a guy with 4.4 speed, he "gets off the line" at a glacial pace. Golden Tate is always going to be Golden Tate, accepect it now and just enjoy the occasional highlights he provides and stop holding your breath for him to turn into 2010 Percy Harvin or DeSean Jackson, nagannahappen. Ricardo Locket seems to hold the most promise for being a starter at this point, but I'm basing that entirely off two catches and rumor.

So back to Plax, his production last year would have put him at the top of our leader board in terms of rec. and yds. plus he caught twice as many TD's as anybody we got. And that's where his value is. I believe as a team the Hawks were only about four or five TD's away from being in the playoffs.
