Steelers WR Plaxico Burress launched his Plaxico Burress Collection of men’s luxury hosiery at a New York nightclub rooftop party on Friday night. Plax looked a little more dapper at the event than he did back when he was packin' a gat at Latin Quarter. The socks will go for $24 a pair.

“I’ve been planning my sock line from behind the scenes for a couple of years; nobody even knew I was doing it,” Plax told the New York Times. “So it’s a lot of hard work that got me to this point.”

What a week for international sock moguls! (No, not you Rob Kardashian). Just days before Plax dropped his new line, rapper Cam'ron showed off some of his new Dipset socks (with his medical marijuana in the picture, of course).

Cam's last socks sold out quickly and are now going for more than $300 for a pair on eBay. Who buys this sh*t? Total rip off of the Stance NBA Legends socks. But who am I to tell you that wearing pink socks with a rapper’s face on 'em ain't cool? I just wear Hanes socks.

Emmanuel Sanders says slow down with the contract talk: ‘I'm not worried about a contract’

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders is happy he’s with the team he started his career with.

However, as Sanders continues to prepare for the 2013 season...

Steelers ready to work after bumpy offseason

Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has a new motto he'd like his player to follow in 2013: less talk, more work. Pittsburgh slogged through an 8-8 season in 2012, missing the playoffs and leading to several players criticizing the culture in the locker room. It was an unusual development for one of the NFL's most stable franchises, and a trend the Steelers know needs...
