Burress' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told Fox affiliate WSVN in Miami that the Dolphins haven't approached him about the unemployed wideout. Rosenhaus has claimed three teams have expressed interest in Burress' services, but the Dolphins aren't one of them.
"I really haven't talked to the Dolphins about it," Rosenhaus said Sunday night. "They're not one of the three teams, and I've kept the three teams private because they've asked me to."
The opportunity to inquire about Burress has been there if the Dolphins were so inclined. Last week, the Dolphins and Rosenhaus brokered a two-year contract extension for cornerback Will Allen.
Burress-to-the-Dolphins rumors heated up when Barry Jackson reported for the Miami Herald that Burress had been telling friends he wanted to play in the aqua and orange if he could navigate his legal problems.
"Don't read too much into Plax saying he'd like to play for Miami because he lives here in the offseason," Rosenhaus said. "He loves South Florida. Who wouldn't want to play for the Dolphins?"
