It took 12 weeks, but an NFL team finally just decided to take a chance on Plaxico Burress this season. Earlier today, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin took a look at the former Steelers wide receiver—who spent last season playing with the Jets—and decided that the Steelers could use him in the red zone as they head down the stretch this season.

"Plaxico is in very good physical condition, from what I saw today," Tomlin said.

He'll join the team this week as they prepare for their game against the Browns on Sunday. Welcome back, Plax.
