For those wondering if free agent Plaxico Burress would really re-sign with the Giants – and there’s always that possibility – it’s going to take a little bit longer than originally thought.
The Newark Star Ledger explains why, reporting that the Giants were trying to arrange a face-to-face meeting with Burress, so they could poke and proud his brain. All along, they knew, per the new league rules, they couldn’t meet with him at their facility, but they thought they could arrange a get-together at a neutral site.
Apparently, that’s not the case.
So, New York, like everybody else in the league since nobody owns Burress’ rights, will have to wait until Friday before trying to determine whether the Giants really want to bring him back to the team.
If Burress’ rights were still owned by the Giants, only then could the team meet with him in person.
