Old soldiers may fade away; it takes a little longer for former NFL super stars. Yes, I'm talking about aging receivers. Another day, another pundit suggesting that the St. Louis Rams take a chance on one of the fading stars looking for work in 2011. 

We're back to Plaxico Burress this time. And the pundit in question is none other than Peter King. Needing to fill column inches at a time when only the most dedicated fans are paying attention to the locked out NFL, King throws out the latest salvo in search for someone to take care of Burress. 

4. I think the Rams should sign Plaxico Burress. No doubt in my mind.

In case you forgot, Plaxico hasn't played football since 2008. If I do the math, that's two seasons, and then some, since the man has seen an NFL snap. 

Sigh. 

At this point, the vacant backup running back position keeps me up at night much more than the Rams supposed need for a 34-year-old receiver.
