so why didn't the jets re-sign him?

why hasn't anyone signed him this year yet?

do they know something about him that you don't or do you know something that they don't?

can't complain about the panthers passing up on him when it doesn't look like really any teams are lining up to bring him in.

We just signed a plethora of young undrafted 6'3"-6'4" WR's that would die to make the team for pennies on the dollar. Do not want. I'd rather give one of these guys a shot before we'd bring in any "diva" WR's.

hurney must continue his 'sign no FA' streak, because the keyshawn signing 6 years ago didnt turn out so great.

With FA, you gotta swing the bat several times just to get a hit. Rare is it to score on every acquisition, no matter how big the name.

Id say yes if there still weren't questions at CB and DT

This. Except the 'diva' part. I don't see Burress as a 'diva' type WR.

if we're going with overpaid receivers who can't seperate, i'd rather have shockey.

yeah, there's nothing in his history that would suggest that. :rolleyes:

The signing of Keyshawn should have no bearing on this discussion. Different player, different scenario. Its the principal concept of WHY you may want to sign a vet receiver that you should consider when talking price for Plax.

Do we need him? couldnt hurt for the min.

Do we need him now? not really

Haven't read through everyone's responses but, Plax strikes me as a guy who will never see himself as a role player, therefore, I don't see it working.

If he was able to accept that role and embrace it fully, I would love the signing.

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
