08:05 AM ET 08.25 | Plaxico Burress didn't really see the Giants in his future. His meeting with ownership and team officials was just a long kiss goodbye, a nostalgic sit-down with familiar people. Never mind that the Jets offered more guaranteed money or others involved were under the impression they were negotiating a contract, Burress said Wednesday his goal was "closure." He laughed with Jerry Reese, John Mara and his good buddy, Steve Tisch. He enjoyed a photo of himself on the wall of the Giants' offices. Then he signed with the Jets. [Barring injury], Burress will line up against his former team in Saturday night's preseason game, the second consecutive week the Jets receiver will take center stage. "Personally, I think I just needed a fresh start," Burress said.

Of course, not too many issues with the Giants.

The Giants could use him on the other side of the ball.

There he goes...shooting his mouth off!

Burress and Coughlin never saw eye to eye. Eli didn't want him back either.

Saturday night, the Giants, Jets and Hurricane Irene meet for an epic battle in the Meadowlands.

Not his mouth that he almost shot off last time.

Oh, I got it now, "JET" from the Giants........

August 25, 2011  08:15 AM ET

Probably best for him in the long run...

Yep, and Irene is most likely going to be the winner.

The interns haven't quite mastered the art of innuendo yet, have they?

So BURRESS needed a fresh start ... but the Giants didn't? They didn't want to cleanse themselves of a gun-toting thug who was stupid enough to not have a license and to shoot himself? Yeah ... I guess the fresh start IS one-sided.

Yes, and the "Tebow Finger" photo is enough for any of us to track down the FN interns and kill them.

Burress isn't done in the league yet. He still has a few rounds left in the magazine.

Isn't "innuendo" the Italian word for "enema?"

I haven't seen any recent pictures in any of the T or R threads. Interns don't get paid or do they?!?
