Report: Giants may keep Burress
"If everything goes all right, yeah," Giants general manager Jerry Reese said on Sunday, according to the Newark Star-Ledger.
Burress caught the Super Bowl-winning touchdown for the Giants last season but was suspended in November after accidentally shooting himself at a nightclub. The wide receiver faces two felony gun charges and could face more charges.
Giants quarterback Eli Manning suffered without one of his top targets. He completed 15 of 29 passes for 169 yards and two interceptions, without a touchdown, in New York's 23-11 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
"Your margin of error is way less when you don't have a guy with that kind of presence out there," Reese said of Burress, according to the newspaper, "so you have to capitalize on every opportunity you have and we were not able to make enough plays."
"Obviously, the guy has a presence when he's on the field. But do they have a Plax out there -- the Eagles? I don't think so," Reese said, according to the newspaper. "They have good receivers, we have good receivers. They made the plays, we didn't. They deserve all the credit."
