Burress was the key element in the Giants' success in keeping their most hated division rival at bay. With Plaxico, the Giants won six of eight vs their turnpike neighbors. Without him, they are 0-6 and counting.
Thursday, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News ran a feature on QB Michael Vick. In the article Vick mentions he plans on visiting with Burress upon his scheduled release from prison in June.
Vick said he hopes to visit with former Giants receiver Plaxico Burress when Burress, a fellow native of the Virginia Beach, Va., area, is released from prison in June. Burress has served more than a year and a half for criminal possession of a weapon after accidentally shooting himself in a New York nightclub.If the Eagles sign Plaxico, you might see me on the local news. I will be out on a ledge 20 floors up in midtown Manhattan with that famous blank look on my face.....
"I hope I can pay him a visit," said Vick, who said he has been thinking about Burress, 33, since Vick's journey to speak with Florida inmates last month. "I just want to reach out to him, talk to him. We have a good relationship . . . just congratulate him on getting through such a tough time, even though it's not the ideal situation, let him know there's plenty of optimism out there for him. I don't think his career's over by far. You look at Terrell Owens, he's 37, and playing like he's in his late 20s."
