Plaxico Burress, who hasn’t played a snap in the NFL this season, is on his way to Pittsburgh and could rejoin the Steelers, his first NFL franchise, sometime this week, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The former Steelers receiver, who played in Pittsburgh from 2000-2004, will reportedly work out for the team on Tuesday.
