Q: Did you see Plaxico Burress last night?
A: I didn’t get to see Plaxico (Burress) last night. I heard he had a meeting with coach Coughlin and I haven’t heard much about it. Obviously, I think he is visiting a few other spots and we will have to just see what will happen.
Q: Do you think Plaxico Burress will come back?
A: I don’t know. I haven’t talked to coach Coughlin. I don’t know how the meetings went. I don’t know what the management and coaches are thinking. He was in for a meeting so they are considering it so we will just take it from there.
Q: How do you feel about Plaxico Burress coming back to the team?

Q: How big of a benefit is it to have Plaxico Burress on the team?
A: It would be nice. He is a guy who goes up and gets the ball and obviously makes plays. That is always a nice thing to have in your back pocket.
Q: Are you calling Plaxico Burress and lobbying for him to return to
A: No, I talked to Plaxico Burress a few weeks ago. More just to call him and see how he was doing and how his family was doing. It had been a while since I had talked to him so it was just to keep up and just give my thoughts about how things have turned out. I wished him well on his football career and wherever he lands. I don’t think that it is a situation for me to lobby. He has been here before and it comes down to what coach Coughlin thinks. If he is mentally ready to come back and be a great teammate and if the ownership has put everything behind them and are ready to turn a new page.
Q: Do you think the team is ready for the hard schedule this season?
A: Yes, I definitely think so. We have a lot of great talent and it is not about going to get new guys every year. It is about the guys that are here and getting the most talent out of the guys that we have. We have a lot of skills in the offensive positions and the receivers can make big plays. We have a number of guys that have to prove that they can be depended on week in and week out.
Q: How do you feel about facing CB Nnamdi Asomugha twice a year?

Q: How do you feel about the New York Jets signing Plaxico Burress?
A: I haven’t thought about it much. It would not be like I would be watching them play except for when we play the Jets the next time. That’s football, you see guys who have been on your team play on different teams. You get used to it so you just have to see what the Giants feel and what’s the best spot for Plaxico (Burress) and where he wants to be.
