It's somewhat suprising that veteran wide receiver Plaxico Burress is still on the free-agent market, with the start of the season less than a month away.

Despite his age, the 35-year-old is still a physical receiver, able to overpower most defensive backs, and remains a prolific weapon in the red zone.

The following five teams are the most likely to give Burress the chance to end his NFL career in style.

Dallas Cowboys

Given the myirad of troubles involving Dez Bryant and the loss of form from Miles Austin, the Dallas Cowboys could use Burress. Cbslocal.com recently claimed the Cowboys might be interested in a deal.

Giving Tony Romo an experienced option to turn to, would be a smart move, especially in light of Jason Witten's recent injury. Where Burress would fit best for the Cowboys, would be as a replacement for 2011 surprise package, Laurent Robinson.

The Cowboys are sure to miss Robinson's red-zone threat and Burress would certainly be able to fill that void.

Carolina Panthers

The Carolina Panthers' offense should be close to impossible to stop from inside the 20-yard-line. Cam Newton's scambling ability, Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams and tight end Greg Olsen, give the Panthers a plethora of weapons.

Add the combination of size and excellent hands, offered by Burress to the mix and Carolina could possess the NFL's best red-zone attack.

The Panthers have been linked with Burress this offseason, according to Usa Today, but decided against signing him. Head coach Ron Rivera would be wise to revisit the move.

Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers lost a valuable veteran outlet in their passing game when Hines Ward retired. Bringing Burress back to the Steel City would plug that gap and provide some experience alongside budding young stars like Antonio Brown.

With the contract saga involving Mike Wallace still dragging on, acquiring Burress could be astute business by the six-time Super Bowl winners.

A reunion between Burress and the Steelers has been mooted by the likes of cbssports.com. It could be a dream scenario for the veteran flanker.

Miami Dolphins

Following the very public release of Chad Johnson, the Miami Dolphins need an experienced wideout. Burress could be a tempting option for a team with a murky quarterback situation.

He has AFC East experience, having played for the New York Jets in 2011 and his size would offer a key target for whomever is under center.

Rookie Ryan Tannehill made a positive first impression in preseason action and would benefit from a sure-handed, powerful receiver like Burress.

Nesn.com has speculated that Burress could do the job Johnson was supposed to perform. The Dolphins do lack a playmaker at wideout and that need could prompt a move for Burress.

Philadelphia Eagles

One of the first teams linked with Burress this offseason, the Philadelphia Eagles should still consider bringing him back to the NFC East.

The Eagles' offense lacks a credible red-zone weapon. With Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy offering a potent threat on the ground, Burress would face penty of one-on-one matchups inside the 20.
