Mike Tannenbaum went on The Michael Kay Show on ESPN Radio 1050 in New York and spoke about many topics including Plaxico Burress.

"Given his physical attributes, we think he’s going to help us this year. Will he be 100 percent the same player? Obviously that’s hard to say. Even if he starts off at whatever, 60 or 70 percent of what he was, and as the season goes on, improves, we really feel like his stature and his ability in the red zone is going to help us. We appreciate the fact that it’s going to be a little bit of a work in progress."

I agree with Mike that Plaxico can help the team in certain situations. Since he readily admits that nobody knows how much he will be able to contribute, though, I wonder why the team is reportedly shopping Jerricho Cotchery. I would have a tough time with that one unless it was to make a move like resigning Braylon Edwards to a cheap contract. And that is tough to believe because the Jets gave Braylon's number away, which shows they have moved on. You don't give away a guy's number if you think there is even the slightest chance you will bring him back.

Our affiliate, Sports Radio Interviews, has the entire transcript. Go there to read more about Mike's feelings on Nnamdi Asomugha and Jerricho Cotchery.
