Plaxico Burress Now Says Returning to Giants is “Great Possibility”


Last week Burress was begging to go to the Eagles.

Now, he is angling to go to the Giants.

Maybe next week he will call Jerry Jones.

Burress had nothing but praise for Tom Coughlin, who he sparred with on occasion while a member of the team and criticized in interviews after getting out of prison, during the interview and called the chance of a reunion “a great possibility.” He then went on to wax rhapsodic about the Giants offense.

“Playing in Kevin Gilbride’s system is definitely one of the best,” Burress said, via Paul Schwartz of the New York Post. “You just see the production those guys are having at the wide receiver position. Victor Cruz obviously with the year he had and Hakeem Nicks and Mario Manningham. You just look at some of the plays those guys are making out on the edge and Eli [Manning] has really just become a man at his position, leading those guys the last few games of the season and obviously winning a Super Bowl.”
