Brandon Jacobs now thinks Plaxico could return to the Giants

Burress-Weapons Charge AP

Giants running back Brandon Jacobs said last week “there’s no chance” receiver Plaxico Burress re-signs with the Giants.

Now, Jacobs thinks there’s a chance.

During a Monday appearance with Adam Schein and Rich Gannon of SiriusXM NFL Radio, Jacobs said that Burress could return to the team.

“I mean, I think there’s a chance the Giants, I mean, I know they probably want him back,” Jacobs said.  “But with him having more options to pick from I don’t know how that’s going to work out.”

Jacobs also thinks that coach Tom Coughlin wants Burress back in blue.

“No question about it,” Jacobs said.  “I do think so.  Coach Coughlin wants to win, so he knew what we had was very special before this whole incident happened.  The Giants want to win, Coach Coughlin wants to win, we want to win as a team and as an organization so it would be smart to make at least an attempt.  But given the fact that he has a lot of other opportunities to play in other cities it may be kind of difficult.”

Jacobs continues to see the Eagles and Rams as two of those opportunities.  He also thinks that the Saints and Colts could be good fits for Burress.

In the end, we think it will come down to what Burress wants, as discussed at the top of today’s PFT Live.  Is he looking for another Super Bowl win?  The most possible money?  Maximum receptions, yards, and touchdowns?

We’ll pose that question to agent Drew Rosenhaus, who’ll join Tuesday’s PFT Live to talk about Burress and other topics.

    The most money… which he isn’t getting in New York.

    I have to think Plax will go to the team that is definitively on pace to play for a Championship and I just dont see the giants competing for a SB this season. He was wearing an eagles hat coming out of jail. Plax, Jackson, Celek, Maclin!!??!! That is a no brainer. Plax will be an eagle..book it!

    Colts make sense as well. Wayne, Plax, Clark..Peyton would be licking his chops

    Plax will be lucky to be picked up above the league minimum for his years of pro-ball. He is in his mid-30’s, no where near football shape, and has been away from the game for over 2 years.

    This is just Drew Rosendouche creating a spin for one of his clients trying to get his commission. The biggest thing Plax has going for him is the fact that Vick came back from prison and had success, but that took a full year of being on the bench to achieve.

    Not to mention that Plax was never considered an elite #1 WR prior to his performance in the SB. He will get picked up, but it will be a small, incentive based contract most-likely by a middle-of-the-road team.

    The Giants have zero need at receiver. Zero, zilch. Forget it

    Will Brandon Jacobs be back in NY? Who is this guy, Walter Payton?

    Talk about a “no-brainer”. Eagles hat? Try looking at the pictures before you make another “no-brainer” comment. It was a Phillies hat. You know, different sport, different color?

    I know he is a very good player, but it is funny how he goes to prison for 2 years and now the hype has him making tons of money with a lonterm deal some where………..

    Not happening…… He will get a decent contract but like Vick…. I do nto think it will be huge money and long term….

    That will be his second contract if he performs well ……..

    I am sorry but what makes Brandon Jacobs an expert on anything but pouting? I don’t understand why media outlets keep quoting him like he knows anything. He is speculating just like anyone else. Stop giving him time!

  10. hus10188 says: Jun 7, 2011 7:36 AM

    erm chapnastier, perhaps because
    1) Brandon Jacobs is Plax’s closest friend on the Giants,
    2) A guy that regularly regularly visited Plax and called Plax in prison during his tenure.
    3) Took Plax’s young son under his wing as one of his own whilst Plax was away.

    So if anyone is inclined to know what Plax’s inner most thoughts its Brandon Jacobs.
    Oh by the way, that expert on ‘pouting’ is also an expert on being a superbowl champ and probably run over your favourite defensive player at one point.

  11. chapnastier says: Jun 7, 2011 8:12 AM

    @ hus

    1. I am sure a lot of players have close friends, that doesn’t mean they have inside knowledge of what an NFL team is going to do personnel wise.

    2. Again, unless he is meeting with the GM’s of the teams he has claimed Plax is going to then he knows nothing.

    3. Again, unless Plax’s younger son is the GM of the Eagles, Giants or any other team that Jacobs has claimed Plax is going to, it is irrelevant.

    So back to my point, Jacobs just knows what Plaxico wants to do, not where he could go. Especially since teams cannot make roster moves, and cannot contact free agents at this point, no one knows anything. It’s called speculating.

    I think I made my point.

    Oh and by the way, I am pretty sure he has never run over Demarcus Ware.

    Who cares what Brandon Jacobs thinks anyway? He’s a poor sport and will probably be traded or released as soon as the lockout ends.

  13. piratefreedom says: Jun 7, 2011 8:15 AM

    I would suggest the Cardinals.
    Arizona and New York have slightly different gun laws.

  14. pixelito says: Jun 7, 2011 8:18 AM

    Players like Plaxico are the reason the Colts don’t sign free agents.

    Brandon Jacobs and his 2.7 yds per carry is the biggest joke in professional sports today. All this guy does his talk, and he does zero on the football field. What a joke.

  16. supashug says: Jun 7, 2011 8:38 AM

    He’s been someones bitch for 2 years, doubt he wants to be Coughlins

    ———————————————————————-

    In Jacobs rookie year (2005), he was a goal-line back/short yardage “specialist”. That year, he had a ypc of 2.6. Since then, his worst year (2009) was 3.7 ypc. He has also had 3 years averaging 5+. So I’m not quite sure where you get this 2.7 ypc from.

    Is he a talker and a loudmouth? Sure he is. So is DeSean Jackson. I seem to remember him sticking his tongue out like “nah nah nah” at the Redskins last year. That’s VERY mature

    Tired of the NFL welcoming back, with open arms, convicted felons. Sorry, in my book, playing for the NFL is a privilege, not a god-given right. They should not be allowed back onto the field with the golden-goose contract. No way. This is so B.S.

    _______________________________

    The joke is your organization attempting to accomplish one goal since inception, and failing to do so..

    Brandon Jacobs may run his mouth, but he has a ring, and he contributed majorly to winning that ring.. No Eagles fan has an argument for that.

    Good Talk.

    Desean Jackson is a pro bowler in the NFL, Jacobs is a ZERO. End of story.

    Good Talk.The Giants won that Super Bowl in 2007 because of their defense, led by Strahan. Since then, that defense hasn’t been able to stop anyone, particularly Desean Jackson. I wonder why the Giants keep drafting secondary help and bringing in bums like Antrel Rolle? To stop the Eagles, period.

    Good talk.

    Brandon Jacobs does one thing, talk. He will be out of football in 2 years.
