Plaxico Burress To The Miami Dolphins?

According to a NY Daily News Report, WR Plaxico Burress, who was in prison for two and a half years on gun charges, may want to play in Miami with the Miami Dolphins next season.

In the report, it says that someone familiar with Burress thinks that he would want to play in a warm climate that is near to his home in Miami. Well, what better team to play for to be closer to your Miami home than the Dolphins?

While there is a lot more that goes into the decision of whether or not a player signs with the team, I actually think Burress' desire to play near his Miami home is significant. The draw for him to be able to go to his home instead of an apartment at night could be enough to make him seriously consider the Dolphins.

The question is whether or not we need him, though. The Miami Dolphins passing game wasn't exactly the best ever, but that wasn't the fault of our receivers. Miami's receiving corps is actually really good. The Dolphins have Brandon Marshall, Davone Bess, and Brian Hartline, so adding another receiver probably isn't necessary.

I'm not saying that I wouldn't like the move, though. Brian Hartline is a really good receiver, but he isn't nearly as good as Plaxico was before he went to jail. The thought of Brandon Marshall and Plaxico Burress lining up on opposite sides with Davone Bess in the slot is an absolutely delightful one, and my greedy side wants Miami to go after him as soon as they are allowed to.

The problem comes in when you start to look at money and the quarterback dilemma. I don't know how much Plaxico will be expecting to be paid, but if he wants a lot, then it probably wouldn't be worth going after him.

The money can be worked out, though. The real problem is the Dolphins quarterback situation. There is no point in having an incredible receiving corps if you don't have a QB capable enough of getting them the ball.

The Dolphins must get a quarterback to compliment their receivers. It is as simple as that. Having the three best receivers in the history of the NFL wouldn't help if you don't have an adequate passer, which is why the Dolphins need to make sure that they get a good QB this offseason.

I say it over and over, and you guys are probably tired of me saying it, but Chad Henne needs to go. He just won't cut it. The Dolphins better draft a QB or trade for one, because Henne isn't what we were hoping he would be at the beginning of the season.

That's all for now. Thanks for reading, and let me know what you think about bringing in Plaxico.
