Optimism from Burress

New, comments

In case you missed it, there was some good news reported yesterday on the Plaxico Burress contract situation.

Burress sounded optimistic, and not bitter at all, about getting a deal done soon with the Giants.

"Honestly, I think my situation is going to be rectified before training camp," Burress said. "I'm not going to worry about it, but I did state that I was unhappy with my current situation with my contract. It'll be worked out."

Burress made it clear he is happy as a Giant.

"I don't want to go anywhere. I made that very evident," Burress said. "If I wanted to go somewhere else or if I didn't want to be there, I would have let that be known, too. I'm going to come out and speak how I feel and tell you what's right. But as far as me, I'm very happy where I'm at. I love the situation I'm in, I love the guys I play with, I love the city and I just love everything about me playing football up there. I just want to end my career there. I don't want to travel all around the globe trying to play football. I'll be 31 in August, so I just want to play my last five or six years there and end my career there and hopefully win another championship."

Burress' optimism is great to hear. Happy and healthy, he's one of the best receivers in the game.

The Giants need him, so we have to hope Burress is right and his situation gets worked out without any bruised feelings.
