08:02 AM ET 06.06 | A fair amount has been written about the possibility of Sam Bradford talking to his future offensive coordinator's brother, Ben McDaniels, though little ink has been spilled about possible new targets for the second-year QB. Even though the Rams' roster is suddenly flooded with receivers, we hear there could still be a passing interest in landing Plaxico Burress, who has been out of commission since shooting himself in the leg in November 2008. Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo remembers Burress quite well from their days together with the Giants.

#1 - Are these the same Rams that Lawrence Phillips "played" for?

June 6, 2011  08:08 AM ET

This is a definite possibility. The Rams are a low-profile team, out of the spotlight, in a weak division, where Plax could get his professional and personal life back on track without the constant media pressure. But I still say Patriots.

It's all speculation until they work out a new CBA.

Whoever is willing to put up with the stupid media attention.

I don't think NEP would do it- I think they want to give Taylor Price, Edelman, & Tate a chance to "make it or break it"

Come to Dallas Bro.

That would be the Jets, right?

"Steve Spagnuolo remembers Burress quite well from their days together with the Giants." Guilt by association.

Although the game may be meaningless....so it does nothing for the fans..

The media would be all over Plax like stink on poop. He'll probably want to be as far away from the NY media as possible.

Christmas Eve, and it's not even the last game of the season. And they want a longer season? And they don't want to start before Labor Day?

Yeah, one or both of the teams could be out of it by then. Or maybe we won't even have a season, and this game will be the Elves against the Sugar Plum Fairies in fantasy-replacement football.

Bah. Humbug.

I think they would take him, or another veteran WR when FA comes around in a second.
That last playoff game sticks in BBs head. It should. There was no difference maker at WR and it showed. He has to build his offense to beat the Jets.
Any team that would mess with Moss years ago and his baggage at the time is not afraid to throw the dice.

The Pats won't pay him big money, and aren't going to go multi-year with a contract, either. Some other team, though, likely will. If nobody else is interested, the Pats might pick him up, but they're not getting into a bidding war for this guy.

Of course, if there's no cap this season, that changes the whole contract game. The Patriots are already a high-payroll team, and they have other guys to take care of first.

He's a free man!

I wish him nothing but the best!

Does he know there's a lockout? Or is he coming back as if he's been stranded on Gilligan's Island for 2 years?
