Angelo says 'No' to Plaxico

Anyone who was hoping the Bears would go after Plaxico Burress – and I can’t imagine why – can officially give it up. Tuesday at Halas Hall, Jerry Angelo officially nixed that idea. “Because of the uncertainty of the future, how could you really say for sure if you went after him that that is going to manifest itself in the '09 season?” Angelo said of Burress’ potential jail time. “I can't say that. Nobody else can. I can't really answer right now in terms of how we view him, but I am not looking at him as an option.” Angelo said he anticipates that some fairly attractive unrestricted free agents would still be on the market at a few positions after the draft. But he said he planned on addressing the Bears’ greatest needs this weekend, and that means the wide receiver position.
