According to reports on ProFootball Talk, wide receiver Plaxico Burress wants to play in 2014.
Burress’s last meaningful action was in 2012 for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he did not play at all in 2013 after shoulder surgery during the offseason. The 37-year old admitted it was ‘tough’ not playing last season:
“I am going to treat it as I am coming back to play. I am going to keep that mindset until they tell me otherwise. I am going to keep going until I can’t go anymore. The stronger I can get, I can come back and play. I want to come back and play.
“Nobody wants to leave via injury. I am too much of a competitor to go out on that note. I am going to attack it and compete. I am going to train and rehab that way. I am approaching it with a business mind. I want to help the Steelers get to the ultimate goal, and that is winning a championship. That is why we work so hard when nobody is watching.”
Whether the Steelers, or any other team, will view Burress as a viable option remains to be seen, especially with some way to go in his rehab.
