Free agent wide receiver and noted handgun enthusiast Plaxico Burress wants the Miami Dolphins to give him a chance. The Dolphins are not so inclined.
According to a report from the Miami Herald, Burress would love to audition for the Dolphins. For now, the team is content to give their current group of receivers every opportunity to stick on the roster before turning to veteran help like Burress or Braylon Edwards. General manager Jeff Ireland openly speculated that Burress "might be done."
Burress returned to the NFL after a sojourn in prison for his infamous night club shooting incident in 2008; he shot himself in the thigh. With the Jets, he caught 45 passes for 612 yards and eight touchdowns, which came as a surprise to many who thought he would not be able to contribute last season. It might be enough for Burress to get a look from teams as training camp injuries happen in August and depth issues are revealed.
