The Post reported today that the Giants could be interested in re-signing disgraced receiver Plaxico Burress once he gets out of prison on work-release in two to three weeks.
General manager Jerry Reese said "We'll definitely investigate it," when Burress becomes eligible. Of course, that date will be decided by commissioner Roger Goodell, who can still administer a suspension for Burress shooting himself in the leg in 2008.
Now, here's the question for you folks. Assuming there's little wrong with Hakeem Nicks' knee, Ramses Barden takes a step up to become an active gameday pass-catcher, and Steve Smith's reliability continues on the upswing, would you risk signing Burress? He could be a major disruption to a young, building unit. And would he gain the fans' forgiveness for lousing up his 2008 season? Also, do you think Reese would seriously consider re-signing him, or is he just saying the right thing?
