The Giants are discussing a potential return to New York with their former wide receiver Plaxico Burress, according to team sources.
The Giants want to see where Burress is at mentally before they would make any moves, the sources said.
Burress, who will turn 34 in August, was released from prison in June after serving a nearly two-year sentence on a weapons possession charge. In an interview in June with ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, Burress expressed doubt that he could co-exist once again with Giants coach Tom Coughlin.
However, according to multiple media reports, Coughlin has told general manager Jerry Reese that he is willing to sit down and talk with Burress.
On Monday, Giants co-owner John Mara appeared on “The Michael Kay Show” on ESPN 1050 in New York and acknowleged the team has raised the possibility of a Burress return.
“I think that’s certainly something we’re going to talk about and have talked about,” Mara said. “Where that goes, I don’t know.”
