 NEW YORK (AP) -New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs hopes a fresh start will be just what his good friend Plaxico Burress needs.
``That's how I looked at it, and how he looked at it,'' Jacobs said Friday.
The Giants released Burress on April 3, a little more than four months after the Super Bowl hero accidentally shot himself in the thigh with an unlicensed gun in a New York City nightclub.
``He made a mistake; he knows that,'' said Jacobs, who was participating in an event promoting the ``Madden NFL'' video game. ``I hope he gets another opportunity. He's a good guy. He doesn't deserve what he's getting.''
It's no surprise that Jacobs would like the Giants to add a ``big, rangy'' wide receiver who draws double-teams to fill the void left by Burress. He'd prefer they do it through the draft, though, instead of signing a veteran.
esn't have a lot of miles on him. ... He's eager to listen and learn.''
