Bill Belichick will always keep you guessing.

With a stockpile of wide receivers already on his roster sheet, Belichick and the New England Patriots held a workout for free agent wide receiver Plaxico Burress today.

The addition of Burress would be a head-scratcher given the depth of their ranks at the position, but the presence of the six-foot-five receiver in the red zone would be an embarrassment of riches on an already-stacked Patriot offense.

The veteran played for the rival New York Jets last season, his first after a stint in prison for an infamous incident involving a handgun in a nightclub where he accidently shot himself.

Burress also infamously caught the game-winning touchdown to seal the victory in Super Bowl XLII over the heavily-favored Patriots to deny them a perfect season.

The move does make sense when you consider that Britt Davis recently injured himself in the first preseason game and the rest of the receivers have failed to step up as a clear-cut number-three receiver behind Brandon Lloyd and Wes Welker.

Then again, this visit is a textbook move on Belichick's part, as he also worked out tight end Dallas Clark earlier in the offseason to do his due diligence on potential additions.

Perhaps Burress joins the fold after all in a move where the Patriots have to hope that a man who once denied them a Super Bowl victory can help bring them another.

We shall see if the invitation is serious or just a shot in the dark.
