    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.

    [/quote] Given that Burress didn't exactly light up the field, I think it's not very likely he'll be sought after by the Giants.

    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.

    [/quote]We don't need a guy coming off a stretch with us where he couldn't control his impulses or simply show up to meetings on time and coming off an incident where he shot himself while out on a week night away from his wife and child, and coming off a visit to jail and coming off a marginal season with the Jets and coming back to us yet another year older. How could that possibly be a good thing?
    No one remembers who came in second.

    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.
