Pittsburgh's Burress embracing role as elder statesmanFormer Giants, Jets wideout trying to make most of final shot in the NFL
The 35-year-old finds himself in a unique position in the twilight of his career. Burress is a backup behind Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown and is fighting with several rookies for a spot on the depth chart.
Burress caught just three passes after signing with Pittsburgh last November. He says he's more comfortable now after spending the offseason getting more familiar with offensive coordinator Todd Haley's scheme.
Burress said it's strange to be the old man in the meeting room but says he hopes his perspective will help the youngsters adjust to the NFL.
