Steve Tisch, Giants co-owner, is heading to jail. But not for the normal reasons; he's visiting Plaxico Burress.
According to the New York Post , Tisch, who hasn't spoken to Plax since the wideout was sentenced
"I think I had a very good relationship with Plaxico," Tisch said. "We spent time together outside the locker room away from the stadium. I think that he felt that I trusted him and he trusted me. I don't want to describe it as a father-son relationship. If there were things that were concerning him or he wanted some direction or feedback, I was one of the people he felt he could go to. It was outside the relationship of player and co-owner."
Burress and Tisch apparently had a pretty strong connection, but because of the circumstances surrounding Plax's recent, ahem, habitat, they haven't been able to connect since the wide receiver headed to prison.
Perhaps the most important thing, though, is that Burress has the support of his former employers -- eventually, he'll be released from prison, and it stands to reason that he'll get another opportunity on the football field (see: Michael Vick).
It also stands to reason that the Giants, who have been pretty loyal and supportive of Burress all things considered, will get first crack at his services.
