On Wednesday, Giants general manager Jerry Reese, who helped engineer last season's Super Bowl run, said that if Burress survived a blizzard of legal issues, he could be a Giant in 2009. "Provided he plays by Giants rules," Reese said. Without going into detail, Reese said the Giants' front office was on the same page about Burress's possible future with the Giants -- namely that he had one -- provided he was not in jail and provided he had a 180-degree attitude adjustment. These are huge ifs. The fact that the Giants are considering taking Burress back is either a sign of tremendous loyalty or of a reluctance to publicly kick a man when he is down.
