  • Jacobs: "Burress wanted to sign with the NYG"

    http://espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/stor...medium=twitter

    INDIANAPOLIS -- Plaxico Burress
    is coming to Super Bowl XLVI to visit his old team -- the team he never
    wanted to leave, according to former teammate and close friend Brandon Jacobs.

    Jacobs, speaking Tuesday at media day, said Burress wanted to sign with the New York Giants -- not the New York Jets -- when he became a free agent last summer. Jacobs also raised the possibility of a Burress reunion with 2012.



    Asked if Burress had his heart set on returning to the Giants, Jacobs
    said, "Oh, no question, I know he did. I know he wanted to come to the
    Giants. We just didn't think it was going to be able to be done
    financially. But he may be (back) next year, who knows?"



    Burress
    signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Jets, who guaranteed
    the entire deal -- the best offer he received. The Giants, whom he
    visited before signing with the Jets, proposed an incentive-laden
    contract with only $1 million guaranteed.

            I think it was after the Jet game Tuck basically said without saying that Burress's first choice was the Eagles. I think Jacobs is a better friend to Burress, so maybe he knows better. My .02, Burress saw the shi.t show in the Jets locker room, and is watching us go back to another SB. Maybe NOW he wishes he signed here, but I doubt he wanted to at the time.


            If they could get him cheap, I'd be interested. We will need a 3rd WR most likely with MM being a FA. I'd only go 1 yr though.

                How do you figure? He's not the same receiver he was in 2007. Manningham will be a casualty of the CAP and Nicks/Cruz. But he's a upgrade over Burress

                    He was still calling pretty tight coverage on the Jets as they have nothing. He had a few good games. Burress will be wide open a ton with Cruz and Nicks playing with him. I'll take that. If he acts up, cut his *** back to the street.

                      i dunno. i could see it, along with resigning smith. MM will be gone. Plex has always provided nightmares for opposing defenses and still would. plex may have had a great season if sanchez was a good qb. with eli, he could become a factor. We could develop packages for him. And he also offers some of the thingd MM did, those vertical routes. Also, Vick struggled his first year back. Second year he actually did a lot better.
                      Plex also practiced with the Jets if Im not mistaken. The giants also wanted him as evident by them offering him a contract.

                      Plex best success came with Eli, and I think he could become a viable weapon for Eli. Could happen, prob won't. but i at least expect the giants to be interested. He should still know our system, and we could even line him up in the slot which would be nightmares for opposing defenses.

                      I actually expect since we'll prob release Barden as well, we offer Plex a contract. Don't be shocked if we do, he still has great redzone ability, can beat press coverage which Philly runs. It makes sense to some degree. Id rather it be smith we look at, but dont be surprised if Plex gets an offer. I bet he wishes he took the Giants offer. And the contract offer from the giants was incorrect. we offered him a two year deal that could have paid more than the jets, it just was guaranteed money,

                      interesting.

                      and also, dont forget eli to plex had the most td of any qb to wr for like 3 year span. with our schedule going to be hell next season, we will need game changes. plex could very well still be that for us. hes healthyas he's ever been. makes sense imo. either smith or plex, i expect oneof those two to come back to the giants. MM may be out of our price range. WHo knows, but I'm intrigued and interested if that means anything

                        Pretty solid season considering. Put him in the slot and he will be a nightmare to defenses. Our redone offense would be great.
