Plaxico Burress met with the New York Giants for 90 minutes on Friday. His visit with the Pittsburgh Steelers today has surpassed that mark tremendously.
As it’s almost reaching 12:00 p.m., Burress has been around camp for over 3 hours, meeting with Mike Tomlin, Kevin Colbert and Steelers President Art Rooney II.
After meeting with Steelers brass early this morning, Burress then chatted with some players and had lunch with the team in the 11:00 a.m. hour.
The Steelers who rarely talk openly about free agents, did today about Burress, as Kevin Colbert made it clear that the Steelers want him.
Colbert said there is mutual interest from all sides; Steelers, Burress and agent Drew Rosenhaus.
There is a lot of positive vibes coming from both sides.
More to come in a bit as developments continue and a full recap from Colbert’s presser:
*Free agent tight end Daniel Graham, formerly of the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos, is visiting with the Steelers this morning.

He spent his first five seasons in the league with New England. He has 222 career receptions for 2,465 yards and 24 touchdowns.
*Cameron Heyward’s four year contract is worth $6.7 million with $3.3 million guaranteed.
