Eli Manning Would Like to See Plaxico Burress in New York Giants Uniform Again

Plaxico Burress' prison sentence isn’t over, but rumors of where he is headed upon his release already have begun.

In an interview with "The Michael Kay Show" on ESPN Radio, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning talked about the oft-troubled wide receiver, who is currently serving a two-year sentence for criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment.

Manning didn't dismiss the idea of a potential reunion on the football field.

 "If he proves that he’s kind of changed his life and shows he's committed to the Giants … to throw him in the mix would be a good thing," Manning said of Burress.

Aside from shooting himself in the leg, Burress is most known for his touchdown reception during Super Bowl XLII that ended up being the game-winning score against the Patriots. Though he has proven talent, his criminal background may be enough to scare away many potential suitors.
