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?"
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.
