Flacco would welcome Burress

Reportedly, the Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco would welcome the addition of troubled former New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress if the team were to consider signing the new free agent.

Burress was released by the Giants after refusing a new contract offer. The offer, for around $26 million, included an agreement that Plaxico would drop his appeals of the fine and contract issues related to his suspension. Burress refused to do this and the Giants released him. Now the courts and a judge will determine his future in and out of football.

However, if and when he is reinstated to the NFL, the Ravens second year QB has reportedly said that he would like to have him as a target in the open field. That makes a ton of sense to me. First of all, Flacco is a no nonsense guy and is far from long winded. He sees a huge target that makes a difference to defenses when on the field and knows the benefit it would bring. The other issues are not his problem as he looks at it and he could prbably deal with his personality as well.

Until I have more specific information and reference responsibility, this specualtion is purely for discussion purposes only. However, Flacco's easy going approach to a touchy situation should be no surprise to any Ravens fan that has followed his amazing progression in the league, both on and off the field.
