Steelers sign Plaxico Burress

Adam Shefter on Twitter - [Full Article]

After watching free agent wide receiver Plaxico Burress workout, the Pittsburgh Steelers plan to sign him.

Fantasy Impact: 

Burress could provide some help in the red zone for whoever is the quarterback, but he'll be a risky play based on workload and the Steelers QB situation. Antonio Brown has the dreaded high ankle sprain, but could be back soon. Jerricho Cotchery is out of action so the Steelers need the help, and the running game hasn't been great. Burress probably isn't going to be an every week fantasy starter, especially with no Ben Roethlisberger at QB for the immediate future.
