As the speculation continues, at least half the people are wondering as they read this, "should the Vikings get Plaxico Burress?" I think the Vikings should get him and this article is why he should wear Purple.

First of all, with Adrian Peterson in the backfield for the running game, that will send people to the middle to stop him. If that happens on passing downs, Plaxico will have a one on one match and most of the time he will win it which means more catches for him.

Second of all the Vikings need him. In the pass years the Vikings struggled in the passing game. If the Vikings get him he can tie up the passing game.

Third of all, after shooting himself not much teams will put up with him, but maybe the Vikings will. If the Vikings want him it will be a 90% chance of getting him. Only about two teams in the NFL will go for him.

See my point. The Vikings have quit the shot here. Thanks for reading.
