Okay, this is the one you guys were clicking through the slideshow for. I am going on record saying I am so far against this move that we’re practically on different planets. However, for the sake of being impartial, I’m going to take an open-minded approach.
Plaxico Burress is a big, talented, productive wide receiver. Last season he snagged eight touchdowns in a run-first offense, and before being imprisoned he was a considered a Cowboy killer.
Ideally, Burress would be able to join the Cowboys and instantly make them exponentially more dangerous. He would be able to fit the exact mold of the third receiver the Cowboys like and his departure from New York probably makes this a good time to sign him to a one-year deal.
Plax could be huge for the Cowboys but there will always be major questions about him as a person. That last thing the organization wants is to reverse the culture shift that they have set in motion and add a cancer that would spread to the young guys the Cowboys feel so good about.
This is a dangerous move and the Cowboys must be careful when considering it. If he signs, there is no doubt he’ll be productive on the field, but what are you getting off of it?
Chances he’s a Cowboy Week 1? I’d say better than most, I think he fit best along with Mike Sims-Walker.
