The Oakland Raiders could enter the sweepstakes for Plaxico Burress once the lockout is lifted.
Burress, who is coming off a two-year stint in a New York prison, would mesh well with the team and provide veteran leadership at the position that is currently lacking with the young group.
Pro Football Weekly wonders if the team will have enough to offer the former Pro Bowl receiver. If, however, the team can make it work he may be among their top targeted free agents.
Fitting anybody under the salary cap could prove difficult for the team after going on a re-signing spree prior to the start of the lockout. That same spree will make it exceptionally difficult to reach a new deal with Nnamdi Asomugha.
Burress has not played since shooting himself in the leg in the fall of 2008. The 33-year-old Norfolk, Va. native caught 505 passes for 7,845 yards and 55 touchdowns prior to his legal trouble.
