Is door open a little wider for Burress?

When I first saw this headline in the New York Daily News, I thought 'not another non-news Giants leave the door open for Plaxico Burress' story.

But then I read the article, and unless I am misinterpreting what General Manager Jerry Reese is saying it seems to me Reese has opened the door a tad wider for Plax.

Judge for yourself.

Reese, who said the legal process is what's most important for Burress now, said he and Tom Coughlin and the rest of the organization are "on board" with the plan to allow Burress to return as long as he agrees to play by the same rules as the other players on the team. That means showing up on time, not skipping treatment sessions and being responsible.

Reese made it clear that Burress has signed off on that stipulation in the conversations they've had.

"He said to me he's made some bad decisions. Everybody knows that," Reese said. "I think he's ready to move on and he told me the last time I spoke to him that, 'I think the light has really come on for me.' So I think he is ready to move on with his life, a new chapter in his life. Hopefully, he will able to do that. The legal process will tell the story."

Is that a change, albeit a slight one, in what Reese has said all along? Or is it just more of the same?

Either way, there are still a lot of obstacles to overcome before we see Burress ever suit up for the Giants again.
