"I don't know Plaxico Burress at all, I've never met him, but we'd consider him," Harbaugh said. "We'd consider anybody. It just depends on where he's at. I'd like to find out what kind of person he is, to see where he's really at in his life."

The Ravens, who suffered through a series of receiver blunders during Saturday's 31-24 AFC Divisional Playoff loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, gave Donte' Stallworth his second chance this season after he served 24 days in jail on DUI manslaughter charges. The NFL suspended Stallworth for the 2009 season, and the Cleveland Browns released the receiver after he was reinstated.

Burress is set to be released from jail in June following a two-year sentence for carrying an unregistered gun that went off and wounded his leg at a nightclub.

Burress was the New York Giants' leading receiver from 2005 to 2007 with 209 catches for 3,227 yards and 29 touchdowns. He caught the game-winning score in the Giants' Super Bowl XLII victory over the New England Patriots in January 2008.

In nine seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Giants, Burress had 505 receptions for 7,845 yards with 55 touchdowns.
