The unlikely courtship of Plaxico Burress by the New York Giants continues.  On Wednesday, it hits the next level, when Burress reportedly will visit with the team.

According to Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger and Gary Myers of the New York Daily News, the parties will get together on Wednesday in the New York area.

Burress told Garafolo that the former Giants star plans to be candid when talking to the current Giants coach.

“I really don’t know what I’m going to say,” Burress said.  “I’m just going to go in there tomorrow and speak from the heart, be truthful with him and let him know how I feel.  Whatever comes out is going to come out.

“I’m pretty sure there are things he wants to say, too.”

And Burress was candid with Garafolo.  When asked about prior comments that were construed as Plaxico saying he didn’t want to play for coach Tom Coughlin again, Burress laughed and said, “It’s not like I wasn’t telling the truth.”

Per Myers, the Texans, Rams, and Eagles also contacted Burress on Tuesday.

The scheduled visit comes at a time when it’s not clear whether free agents can visit with teams.  Agent David Canter said via Twitter on Tuesday that visits can’t occur before 6:00 p.m. ET Friday.  The Transition Rules on which the NFLPA leadership voted Monday are silent on this point.

We’ve sent an e-mail requesting clarification to NFL spokesman Greg Aiello.  Like most normal human beings operating on Eastern Daylight Time, Aiello is likely asleep.

    Gives the Giants a chance to test out their new metal detectors.

    Even when he was talking smack, we all knew Plax would look deep into his heart and find forgiveness and understanding for Coughlin once he sniffed the Jint’s Benjamins.

    Burress fit perfectly there and he played nearly flawlessly. He was incredible.

    He’s only bothering to meet with them because he’s going back to LQ later that night.

    With Steve Smith coming off a serious knee injury this is a deal the Giants MUST get done.

    Did he put on weight in prison? The could really use him on OL.

    Not sure how I feel about this, but if Coughlin and Reese are sold than so am I.

    Nicks, Burress, Manningham and eventually Steve Smith? Sounds pretty insane to me.

    Translation “our receivers are that bad!!!”

    The Giants need ” Chedderbob ” Burriess back because he was their best receiver and this is the only way to stop Eli from throwing so many interceptions.

    The Giants can forget about convincing Burress to come back and play for them. The team and Coach Coughlin immediately threw him under the bus when he was arrested. I would make the Eagles the favorite to get him.

    Coughlin will greet Burress by saying “Well, looks like prison agrees with you, Plax!”.

    The meeting will then open with an update on New York’s gun laws, and brochures from holster companies.
