Burress' future still on hold
June, 23, 2009
Don't expect WR Plaxico Burress to sign with a team before training camp. The Jets don't plan on doing anything at this point. The Bears have taken the position over the past couple days that they probably won't do anything, either. The Buccaneers are still interested and there might be a fourth team. The possibility of an indictment, stemming from Burress' accidental, self-inflicted shooting in November, before August may have slowed teams' pursuit of the free-agent wideout. On June 15, a judge delayed Burress' trial on a gun possession charge until Sept. 23.
