New York Giants Notes: Rosenhaus Says 'Burress Will Be Playing In 2011'

Here are your Thursday morning New York Giants notes.

Drew Rosenhaus is beating the Plaxico Burress drum.

"I am not a big advocate of making predictions on teams because so much can change," Rosenhaus said.

"But I am not afraid to make the following prediction; Plaxico Burress will be playing in 2011. And he will play very well. And it will be a very happy ending to a very tough, tough story for him."

As Plax's agent, this is what Rosenhaus is supposed to do -- create as much interest as possible in his client. I have no doubt, by the way, that Burress will be in uniform for someone next season. Though I really would rather not see that be the Giants (I will just agree to disagree with those of you who want Plax back) I do hope his story has a happy ending.

ESPN is asking fans to vote for the all-time Super Bowl team. The Giants are represented by Carl Banks, Mark Bavaro, Leonard Marshall, Bart Oates, Phil Simms, Lawrence Taylor and Justin Tuck.

Running back Charles Scott spent the season on the Giants practice squad after being traded by the Philadelphia Eagles and released by the Arizona Cardinals. The Daily lsureveille has a look at the LSU grad.

"It was like a roller coaster," Scott said. "I go from the Northeast to Arizona, which was a world of difference, and then I go back up. Everything happens for a reason, and I think I've landed in a great spot in New York. I'm very comfortable, and they're comfortable with me."

I went looking for some scouting reports on Scott, and I am intrigued. He is a 6-foot-1, 235-pound power back one report refers to as "a poor man's Brandon Jacobs." PhiladelphiaEagles,com calls him "a terrific prospect for a power running offense that prefers to pound the ball on the inside."

It will be interesting to see if Scott gets a real look in training camp -- if there is a training camp -- as either a short-yardage back or possibly even at fullback.
