New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks got advice from Pittsburgh Steelers WR Plaxico Burress over the course of the season about how to play through a contract year. "I tried to pick his mind, see what he had going and really just be a friend and let him understand I played the position," Burress told NJ.com on Wednesday. "It's not always easy but you have to go out and be focused. Hopefully between those lines, it's all football."

Steelers | Plaxico Burress to IR

Tue, 13 Aug 2013 12:16:08 -0700

The Pittsburgh Steelers placed WR Plaxico Burress (shoulder) on the Injured Reserve Tuesday, Aug. 13, and signed free-agent WR Tyler Shaw (Cardinals) to an undisclosed deal in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: The loss of Burress puts more onus on Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders in the receiving game this year. Jerricho Cotchery will also see a bigger role as the No. 3 receiver. The Steelers aren't expected to air the ball out all that much, though, so the boost to Brown and Sanders isn't drastic.

Steelers | Plaxico Burress thinks he can be factor in red zone

Sun, 09 Jun 2013 08:32:01 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Plaxico Burress said he believes he can be a factor in the red zone because of his size. "I know I can still play, I know I can dominate in the red zone," Burress said. "Just go out and play at a high percentage. In those one-on-one opportunities, just succeed at a high rate. I know I can. Being out there last year, I drew double coverage in the red zone without hardly playing, I think teams will have to respect that."
