Could he play QB for them?

I've heard he's quite the gunslinger.

Brown is probably going to be out a few more weeks.

Cotchery got hurt late against the Ravens and might not be able to go.

Makes sense. They're running out of bodies.

This is like, the post of the month.

Anyway, seems like a non-factor move. I don't think he'll get much playing time, barring injury.

The Steelers will probably have just three healthy receivers next week, and one of those guys is someone they signed off their practice squad a week or two ago.

They're signing him because he'll play IMO.

I like Plax so I'm biased. I think he can still ball. Good redzone threat, I wonder if he's kept in shape.

Get TO?

Or get Randy Moss and not throw to him?

I'm one of the few Giants fans left that like him too. I thought he was pretty impressive last year for a guy who was sitting in a jail cell. I felt he could have been improved better this year had he gotten a shot early on and had time to get in better shape.

Not so sure what he's gonna look like now though.

Well he wasn't the fastest guy but he was a big body. He'll be good for conversions and redzone. I still wish the Jets kept him personally but again like I said I'm biased.
