Veteran wide receiver Plaxico Burress was said to be mulling retirement, but that no longer appears to be the case. The former Steelers star told ESPN’s Outside The Lines that he believes he still has more football ahead of him, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News (via Sulia).
“I believe I do. I am rehabbing three or four days a week and I may go out and give it one more big push and that is the competitor in me,” said the 36-year-old, who added that he’s also working on his own business venture at the same time.
Burress did not appear in a regular season game with Pittsburgh in 2013 and probably won’t be back with the Steelers in 2014. Burress’ last productive year was with the Jets in 2011 when he hauled in 45 catches for 612 yards with eight TDs. Of course, the veteran lost years of his career thanks to his infamous gun incident.
