The Pittsburgh Steelers will be bringing wide receiver Plaxico Burress back again.
CBS Sports.com’s Jason La Canfora reports that the team will sign Burress, 35, to a one-year deal at the veteran minimum. The Steelers brought him on board last November, after injuries to Jerricho Cotchery and Antonio Brown.
Burress was drafted eighth overall by the Steelers in 2000, then joined the New York Giants after five seasons. He missed the 2009 and 2010 seasons while he was serving a prison sentence on a gun charge after accidentally shooting himself in the leg in a New York nightclub. Burress played for the Jets in 2011 and caught eight touchdown passes in 16 games. With the Steelers last year, he caught three passes for 42 yards and a TD.
