Once the NFL Lockout is over and done for good, there will hopefully be some time to sign some free agents. The three main ones of the wide receiver class include Terrell Owens, Plaxico Burress, and Randy Moss.
NFL Network recently did a poll on who'd you rather have on your team. I can't quite remember the results at the top of my head, but I'm pretty sure everyone preferred Randy Moss, then Plaxico Burress, and lastly Terrell Owens. It actually quite shocked me there.
First of all, Terrell Owens is the only one who actually really could play this year and was the most productive. He's been very productive for his career, and even at his age, he can produce Pro Bowl numbers. All-in-all, he finished with 72 catches for 983 yards and nine touchdowns. Not bad for a 37-year-old. Not at all.
Moss? Well, all he was known for was being a diva after struggling with the New England Patriots. He went on with the Minnesota Vikings, and caused quite a stir complaining about the food there, then complimenting the Patriots after a regular-season match against them. He only played like two weeks with the team before he was released, however, later to be picked up by the Tennessee Titans. He finished with 28 receptions for 393 yards and only five touchdowns. Ouch.
Plaxico Burress is what I am really interested in. After seeing the success of Michael Vick, who came out of jail, maybe Plaxico Burress could pull off the same. Burress has been out of the league for two years, but there have been many good things said about him. Michael Strahan has said he's talked to Burress, and was surprised by how optimistic and happy he was about things and was much stronger. Burress isn't hurting anymore as he was when he last played. He is gonna be fun to watch.
But it still surprises me how a guy like Moss is number one for everybody. For me, I would go with Owens right now as he has proven he is the most productive right now. Second for me will be Burress after hearing about things future Hall-of-Famer, Strahan, said. Moss is last because of how much he struggled and what he did off the field.
Randy Moss, Terrell Owens, or Plaxico Burress?
Who would YOU pick?
