Plaxico Burress is arriving to Super Bowl XLVI to visit his former team – the team he by no means wanted to depart, according to former colleague and best friend Brandon Jacobs. Basketball scores

Jacobs, speaking Tuesday at media day, announced Burress wanted to sign with the New York Giants — not the New York Jets — when he changed into a free agent last summer. Jacobs also raised the probability of a Burress reunion in 2012.

He was asked if Burress had his heart set in coming back to the Giants, Jacobs announced, “Oh, no question, I know he probably did. I know he would have liked to come to the Giants. We simply did not think it was meant to be able to be completed financially. But he might be (back) next year, who knows?”

Burress signed a 1-year, $3 million agreement with the Jets, who assured the entire deal – the best offer he was given. The Giants, whom he visited before signing with the Jets, suggested an incentive-laden deal with only $1 million warranted.

It was a bitter-sweet season for Burress. He was pleased to be back on the field after a 20-month jail sentence for illegal weapons possession, and he executed a few memorable times, but his last numbers were modest for a starting wide receiver – 45 catches for 612 yards and eight touchdowns.

Jacobs presumed that Burress was under-utilized by the New York Jets, as well suggesting that Burress – a free agent – does not want to comeback due to their well-documented chaos in the locker room.

“I don’t see him back with the Jets next year at all,” claimed Jacobs, who speaks with Burress constantly. “I don’t know what he’s thinking, but I don’t see that. They’ve got plenty of things going on over there, and I don’t know if he would like to join that.”

The feeling is mutual as the NY Jets are making preparations to look to get younger at receiver. Burress also has hard questions about the aptitude of quarterback Mark Sanchez, a person near to the receiver announced Tues.Jacobs didn’t dispute that.

“I don’t see him there due to (the limited) achievement he had last year, and I do not believe it had anything to do with him,” Jacobs said. “And I will leave it at that.”

Rushing, Jacobs added: “How many receiving yards did he have last year? How many catches did he have? He’s a starting wide receiver – (45) catches. We were given three fellows, 4 guys on our team that have that. He is a much better wide receiver than (45) catches, I tell you that.”

Burress scored 4 years ago, the game-winning touchdown for the Giants in Super Bowl XLII. Before the game, he made the front page by predicting a 21-17 victory over the New England Patriots. Nine months later on he accidentally shot himself in leg, starting his ruin.

This time, Burress will be reduced to fan status at the Super Bowl, watching the Giants-Patriots game.

“Yes, he will be here,” Jacobs asserted. “I do know that. He will be here.”

In a recent telephone conversation, Burress thought about what could have been, Jacobs said.

“I talked with him a week or two back, when we were playing the 49ers, and he was like, ‘This is crazy, ‘” Jacobs said.”Two of the groups he was looking at were playing in the NFC Championship Game.”

The Jets ended 8-8, falling down in Dec.

Whilst he discussed the chance of Burress returning to the NY Giants next season, Jacobs, along with defensive end Osi Umenyiora, confront doubtful upcomings with the team even though both are under agreement for next season.

Jacobs has a roster bonus of $500,000 due in March. The New York Giants will has to make a call on the running back, which restructured his deal to help the Giants re-sign his good friend Ahmad Bradshaw. Jacobs has $4.4 million left on his deal next season. ”I have never truly thought about that, and it does not actually bother me,” he claimed regarding what will happen after the Super Bowl. “I am sure something is going to get worked out and things will be fine. I’m playing in the Super Bowl for the New York Giants. And if that’s the way that it is, there is nothing I can do. I’m trying to do as best I can to help this team win.”

Umenyiora also has 1 year left on his agreement at just under $4 million left. He held out of training camp for a new agreement or to be traded to a team that would be willing to re-do his arrangement. He and his agent, Tony Agnone, actually had a quick window to attempt to work out an agreement before the team rescinded the authorization. Umenyiora at last caved in and returned to play for his existing contract.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen after Sunday’ game” Umenyiora recounted. “We’ll see.”
