2012 Super Bowl Media Day: Brandon Jacobs Says Plaxico Burress Wanted To Be A Giant

Brandon Jacobs is never at a loss for words. On Tuesday during his media day session, the hulking New York Giants running back stated that New York Jets wide receiver Plaxico Burress wanted to return to the Giants before this season.

"Oh, no question, I know he did. I know he wanted to come to the Giants. We just didn't think it was going to be able to be done financially," Jacobs said. "But he may be (back) next year, who knows?"

Of course, all of this is coming on the heels of the Jets collapsing down the stretch, including a back-breaking loss to their crosstown rivals.

Jacobs continued, saying he would be stunned if Burress returned for another round with Rex Ryan and the Jets.

"I don't see him there due to (the limited) success he had last year, and I don't think it had anything to do with him... and I'll leave it at that."

Burress was an intriguing figure in the off-season after missing two full years while serving his prison sentence. The Jets were able to bring him in with the idea of replacing Braylon Edwards, but he was never able to get in rhythm with Mark Sanchez.

Jacobs knows his ex-teammate in is a regretful mood after missing out on a chance to play deep into January and February.

"I talked to him a couple of weeks ago, when we were playing the 49ers, and he was like, 'This is crazy,' " Jacobs said. "Two of the teams he was looking at were playing in the NFC Championship Game."
