PITTSBURGH – Plaxico Burress is ready to get back to work.
The veteran wide receiver says he still thinks there's plenty of football in him and he sees no reason why he can't play for the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday against Cleveland. The Steelers (6-4) signed the 35-year-old Burress on Tuesday to shore up an injury-depleted receiving corps.
Burress spent the first five seasons of his career with the Steelers before moving to the New York Giants and New York Jets. He says it's a little strange returning to Pittsburgh, but that in some ways it still feels like home.
Burress joked he told Steelers fans to dust off the No. 80 jersey in their closet and make sure it still fits.
