Giants' John Mara On Plaxico Burress: 'You Have To Be Interested'

Friday night’s dinner date between New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin and former Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress could be the most eagerly-anticipated dinner since, well … maybe since the first time Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were spotted out together.

The dinner will go a long way toward determining whether Coughlin and Burress, who have never seen eye-to-eye, think they can get along if the recently-free-from-prison Burress were to return to New York.

If they can, the Giants might make Burress an offer. If not, they will move on without each other.

Giants President John Mara visited PFT Live today, and discussed the possible return of Burress to the Giants:

“We’re a long way from being there, and we’ll just have to see what happens,” Mara said. "But obviously he was a tremendous player for us and one of the big reasons that we won that Super Bowl. I think it would have been foolish for us not to even have the conversation with him.

“So we’ll see what happens when he comes in tomorrow evening and what happens that. But obviously you have to be interested in someone who has that kind of talent.”
