Steelers sign Plaxico Burress, Brian Hoyer

According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Steelers have signed wide receiver Plaxico Burress.

With injuries to both Antonio Brown and Jericho Cotchery, the Steelers needed to add depth at receiver.

This is somewhat of a homecoming for Burress who was drafted by the Steelers and started his career in Pittsburgh.

The Steelers also signed quarterback Brian Hoyer to back up Charlie Batch.
