Several New York Giants players who want Plaxico Burress back often point toward Michael Vick's successful return from prison and say, why can’t Burress do the same?

Vick is saying the same thing, and the Eagles quarterback wants to talk to Burress once the receiver is released from prison in June. Both grew up in the vicinity of Virginia Beach, Va.

"I hope I can pay him a visit," Vick told the Philadelphia Daily News. “I just want to reach out to him, talk to him. We have a good relationship ... just congratulate him on getting through such a tough time, even though it's not the ideal situation, let him know there's plenty of optimism out there for him. I don't think his career's over by far. You look at Terrell Owens, he's 37, and playing like he's in his late 20s."

Several Giants, such as Brandon Jacobs, Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora, have said they want Burress back. Giants general manager Jerry Reese has said he will explore the possibility of a reunion when Burress is released.
