Plaxico Burress returned to the NFL this week, signing with the team who drafted him out of Michigan State, the Pittsburgh Steelers. Randy Moss signed with the San Francisco 49ers last offseason, although he has had a minimal impact with the team in many games this season. With Moss and Burress both back in the league, could Chad Johnson and Terrell Owens be next to return?
