David Diehl: Giants, Plaxico Burress Should Pass On Each Other

New York Giants offensive tackle David Diehl, aappearing Friday on the NFL Network, said the team should pass on re-signing the soon-to-be-released from prison Plaxico Burress.

"I would like to say yes," Diehl said Friday when asked about a possible Burress return. "He’s had a lot of success for us as a player. But, if I were Plaxico, I would say no. With everything that happened (pleading guilty in 2009 to attempted criminal possession of a weapon), Plaxico has taken a lot of heat, not only through the media. … I think about Michael Vick’s situation. He went into a new situation, a new city, where he could almost start fresh with new teammates and go back to basics."

Diehl also appeared on NFL Live, and added this:

"I do think he going to get picked up, but I think it's going to take him a little while to get his legs back, to be the type of player that he's capable of being," Diehl said. "I know first-hand the type of guy he can be. He can spread the field, he can make sure you don't have eight in the box and you can really get the run game going. He's a guy that's a constant threat out there."
