Panthers Not Interested In Plaxico’s Services

Don’t bet on seeing Plaxico Burress in Carolina Blue in 2012.

W&L ignored Plaxico Burress’ reported interest in playing for the Carolina Panthers earlier in the week, mainly due to the fact that it was a pipe dream for the wide receiver.

“My brother lives right there in Charlotte, my cousin lives there in Charlotte, and all my family is there in Columbia, S.C.,” Burress told WFNZ-AM on Monday, via ESPN.com. “It would just be a great situation all the way around and being close to everybody.”

“Not just that, but playing with Cam (Newton), who I think is one of the top five quarterbacks in all of football, and as long as I can remember Steve Smith has been one of my favorites,” Burress said. “I just think it’s a great situation.”

Well, just as that news broke, the Panthers pretty much said, “Thanks but no thanks.”

And that story ended just as soon as it began.

Plaxico is facing an uphill battle in finding a new team for 2012
