Former Giants and Jets recceiver Plaxico Burress recently told a Charlotte radio station that he would like to play for the Panthers.
Burress told the radio station:
“My brother lives right there in Charlotte, my cousin lives there in Charlotte, and all my family is there in Columbia, South Carolina. It would just be a great situation all the way around and being close to everybody.
“Not just that, but playing with Cam, who I think is one of the top five quarterbacks in all of football, and as long as I can remember Steve Smith has been one of my favorites. I just think it’s a great situation.”
He continued by telling the station that other teams were interested, and that earlier in the year he wanted to play with the Eagles, but no offer came.
“I just want to put myself in a position to go out and have success and to make the guys around me better and obviously play with a quarterback who can really play the position. It’s just about me picking my spots and seeing where I’m a good fit. You just look at a situation like Carolina. You can’t come across a better situation than that. “
Last season Plaxico had 8 TD’s with the Jets, but never could click with Sanchez. He finished the season with 612 yards on 45 catches.
There you have it, one of the better free agents wants to play in Charlotte.
