Title: NFL's Homeless

Plax [smiley=gunsablazin.gif] allegedly on the fast tracks back (that is, if there is a 2011 season to come back to :-/)... according to "The REAL Feed":

After visiting Plaxico Burress in prison on Saturday, agent Drew Rosenhaus said his client is ready to return to the NFL.
Rosenhaus wrote on Twitter that the former Giants wide receiver, " is doing great! He is running & lifting weights 5 days a week. He looks in terrific shape."
Burress is...

Here is an unexpected member of the NFL's 2011 homeless.  Well, actually it would be truer to say that he's in the doghouse.  On the other hand, he is swingin' with a chick who could be in Penthouse. [smiley=yes.gif] [smiley=lickinmychops.gif] [smiley=eatme.gif] But, given that he started that fling while his wife was eight-months-pregnant, [smiley=crybaby.gif] :-/ [smiley=no.gif] I guess he should be homeless, which he might end up being based on his present financial situation, which is what allegedly has him filing for reinstatement.  Be hottie as she may, this girl has evidently not honed her gold-digging skills very well.  At any rate, here is all that from this LOCAL source on "The REAL Feed":

Tiki files papers to return to NFL (http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/giants/2011/03/08/2011-03-08_tiki_barber_who_last_played_with_the_giants_in_2006_files_paperwork_to_come_out_.html)

So where does Orton go?   KC,  Houston, or the Bears? (that is the waiver order)


Bears or Chiefs or Texans... in that order and really favoring the former two.  The Bears would makes sense, familiarity.  But, given the rules of the short waiver period prior to outright free-agency, the fact that the Bears seem to like Hanie, and the fact that the Chiefs are in the worst situation at quarterback, are higher in the waiver-wire pecking order and a divisional rival, I would not at all be surprised if Orton went to the Chiefs.
