08:06 AM ET 01.18 | John Harbaugh and the Ravens could open their doors to Plaxico Burress. Over a three-season span between 2005 and 2007, Burress led the Giants in receptions (209), receiving yards (3,227) and touchdown catches (29) and caught the game-winning touchdown against the New England Patriots in the 2008 Super Bowl. "I don't know Plaxico Burress at all, I've never met him, but we'd consider him." Harbaugh said. "We'd consider anybody. It just depends on where he's at. I'd like to find out what kind of person he is, to see where he's really at in his life."

The Commish has not yet acted on Plax. He could receive a suspension. Given the way Vick was handled, 4 games would be my guess.

I think Plax leaves the slammer sometime in the summer, but maybe not until September?

just tell him not to keep one in the chamber ...

They've already got Boldin and Housh. Isn't this a team that's already fat on receivers? It's not like Plax is going to make your receiver corps any younger.

Good luck with that, Ravens.

Derrick Mason too. He had a very productive year at the age of 37.

I thought you only got 4 games if a drunk DTF girl accused you of rape with no evidence?
Shooting yourself in a night club? Probably 2.

Can't be worse than Housh... I'd cut his sorry arse!

"It just depends on where he's at" Right now he's in prison.

Plax only shot himself. He won't fit in on a team with Ray Lewis and Donte Stallworth, who have actually killed people.

For Plax They usually assigns two defensive backs on him and this leaves teh other receivers uncovered for easy completion. Look at teh Giant offense after Plax, Mediocre to say the least.

They should consider a new OC. Cam Cameron made some horrible play calls at the worst times on Saturday.

TJ and Stallworth are becoming fas this summer. Mason is 37. They definitely need some help at wr, but Burress is not the answer imo. They should rather draft one.

January 18, 2011  10:28 AM ET

Yes, Plax makes total sense, considering their luck bringing in veteran wide receivers so far. It's not like they dropped any key passes last weekend.

January 18, 2011  10:46 AM ET

They had no problem signing Stallworth, who killed a guy. Why have a problem with Plax, who is merely dumb?

The Ravens should of somehow jumped ahead of Dallas to get Dez Bryant at the Draft.

Apparently not, they still couldn't do much when it mattered this weekend!! They're trying to copy the jets, they sign a bunch of has-beens and it works out for them!!

Problem is they're still the ravens, they'll only be second best to the steelers!!

Plax is a good pick up, he might be dumb, but there some huge upside to him!!

Boldin was and still is my fav reciever, but when he dropped that TD pass late in the game, well, when that's your only job you have got to make that catch.
