Bucs Interested in Burress

Plaxico Burress could be headed to prison. If convicted, he faces a minimum 3 ½ year sentence for unlawful carrying of a handgun during an incident in which he accidentally shot himself at a night club last November. However, IF he's available to play in the NFL soon...Raheem Morris would love to see him end up in Tampa.

It seems that the call Tampa recently made to Burress will likely not be their last contact with the receiver. Though he didn't get into specifics, Bucs coach Raheem Morris sounded Thursday like someone who would jump at the chance to add Burress to his roster if Burress can clear himself from his legal issues. "He's a great player,'' Morris said of the 2nd Amendment fan, "Anytime you have an opportunity to get a great player, you'd love to see a great player come to Tampa.''

"He has to deal with his issue with the league and we'll see how that plays out and their timing and everything of that nature, but he's a great player,'' Morris added. "But we really don't know what that situation is right now. We're really talking about ghosts to be honest with you because we're talking about a suspended guy.''

No mention was made about the fact that Burress sort of resembles a Gremlin.
