The Giants remain circumspect about bringing back Plaxico Burress, but Michael Strahan says it’s a no-brainer according to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post. Strahan yesterday said he fails to see why the team would pass on Burress if the 33-year-old wide receiver is released as scheduled from a New York state prison in June after serving 21 months on a weapons charge.
Asked if he would re-sign his former teammate if he were running the Giants, Strahan said: “If he got out at 4 o’clock, he’d be a Giant by 4:05. The best thing that happened to Plaxico was Michael Vick,” the retired Giants defensive end and current FOX Sports NFL pregame host said. “It showed that you did something, you serve your time and that you come out and play and there’s redemption in it.
Plaxico injured himself, so there would probably be a lot more leeway with him than there was with Michael Vick,” Strahan added. “If you can forgive [Vick], then you have to forgive Plaxico.”
