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.
