Free agent wide receiver Plaxico Burress had eight touchdown catches for the Jets in his first season back on the field after two years in prison, but that wasn’t enough to make other teams interested in his services.
The Jets didn’t re-sign Burress, and he hasn’t been able to find a new home this offseason, and the Miami Herald reports that Burress would love to audition for the Dolphins, but they’ve shown no interest in him.
The Dolphins, who traded away Brandon Marshall at the start of the offseason, could still add a free agent receiver. But they’ve shown little interest in Burress, or any of the other well-known veteran free agents available, like Braylon Edwards, Terrell Owens and Roy Williams.
Burress turns 35 in August, and NFL teams may have concluded that he just doesn’t have a lot left.
