After serving a two-year jail sentence, Plaxico Burress is eyeing a return to football. Now, it appears as though a reunion with the New York Giants and head coach Tom Coughlin isn't too far-fetched.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported via Twitter on Tuesday that the Giants and Burress have been talking "for a good portion of today."
Despite Burress expressing sentiments that he can't work with Coughlin anymore, Coughlin told Giants general manager Jerry Reese that he's open to talking to Burress, ESPN.com reports. Sources also reportedly said that the Giants first want to see where Burress' mental state is before they bring him back.
"I think that's certainly something we're going to talk about and have talked about," Giants co-owner John Mara said on the Michael Kay Show. "Where that goes, I don't know."
Burress, who scored the Super Bowl-winning touchdown against the Patriots in 2008, was charged later that year for possessing a firearm illegally.
In his last season in 2008, Burress played in 10 games, catching 35 passes for 454 yards and four touchdowns.
