Giants might take a look at Plaxico Burress

If you thought the Giants had no interest in perhaps bringing back WR Plaxico Burress – who is serving a two-year prison stint for gun possession but is scheduled to be released in the next couple weeks – think again.

New York general manager Jerry Reese told the New York Post the team will investigate it.

"He says his body feels great and is free of pain for the first time in years," a source who has visited Burress tells the Post’s George Willis. "He's in good shape and he has handled everything well."

It’s obviously unclear what Burress, who turns 33 later this month, possibly has left. But it wouldn’t be outlandish to suggest Burress could help the Giants WR corps. Steve Smith is the team’s No. 1 WR, and Hakeem Nicks (whose MRI today revealed that his knee would be OK) and Mario Manningham are decent enough. Other than that, it wouldn’t be impossible for Burress to have a chance to contribute.

UPDATE (3:30 p.m.):
Pro Football Talk responds. One of Mike Florio's sources called the Post report "bogus" and that Burress might not be released in the next few weeks.

He's really dumb but hes a good player, Giants need him and his sentence was ridiculous. I hope he makes it back, Pacman Jones is in the league, Donte Stallworth, Michael Vick, Leonard Little, Tank Johnson etc etc etc etc. Burress was a scapegoat for being stupid, he deserves a chance to play in the NFL again. Seriously! Who doesn't carry a gun to the club these days?

Burress deserves a second chance. The Giants should really consider giving him a shot. Of all the terrible things that celebrities and sports stars get accused of these days, what happened to Burress isn't as bad. He made a mistake, but his intentions were not bad. Give Plax a second chance.
