The Chicago Sun Times is reporting that a fourth team has entered the bidding for troubled WR Plaxico Burress. The paper reports that the Bears, Buccaneers and Jets have all placed calls to Burress’ agent Drew Rosenhaus, who also confirmed the fourth team but did not reveal it.
Burress’ trial on gun possession charges was adjourned until Sept. 23, and his attorney, Benjamin Brafman, said it was inconceivable that a trial would begin before 2010. But the NFL could still take action.
