The Patriots are not expected to sign free agent WR Plaxico Burress.
The Pats did their due diligence by giving Burress a workout on Sunday, but this was never a good fit right now. They already have three red-zone threats in Rob Gronkowski, Brandon Lloyd and Aaron Hernandez. Burress would have been nothing more than the fourth wideout, battling with the likes of Jabar Gaffney for snaps. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Plaxico is now on the Patriots' "emergency list."
