Burress Back with the Steelers – Says Can Make an Impact

Newly inked WR Plaxico Burress spoke to the media for the first time on Wednesday as the Steelers prepare for the Browns Sunday in Cleveland.

“I want to just kind of add a different wrinkle to this offense,” Burress said Wednesday. “Get down there inside the 20, draw some double coverage, open some other guys up. There’s a few things I can do.”

He may get that shot Sunday vs the Browns, as Antonio Brown did limited work today, but isn’t expected to go vs Cleveland, and Jerricho Cotchery is also banged up.

Burress’ goals are as high as the Steelers, and it starts with Sunday vs the Browns.

“A lot of pieces are in place here, and the goal obviously is to walk on the field and win a world championship,” Burress said. “I just want to come in and have an impact.”

He may just have that shot Sunday.
