Plaxico Burress feature


Agent Drew Rosenhaus: I am not a big advocate of making predictions on teams because so much can change. But I am not afraid to make the following prediction; Plaxico Burress will be playing in 2011. And he will play very well. And it will be a very happy ending to a very tough, tough story for him.


Reaction to Burress feature


Collinsworth: I do believe that he will be back. My concern would be what I saw with Mike Vick. It took Mike a year out of prison before he looked like Mike Vick again. Plaxico Burress is a guy (that) I don’t think it will take him that long. But we’ll have to see.


Simms: I don’t think he’ll come back to the Giants. One, they are loaded at the receiver position. And, I think it might be best for him to move on and connect with the coach or the receiver coach that he can have a special relationship with and further his career along.
