Burress might wind up getting a job, but it won't be with the Giants. Coughlin has another idea for how to fill in for Nicks while he recovers.
Nicks' recovery is expected to take anywhere from 6 to 12 weeks, which could have him ready just before Week 1. Nicks already is speaking optimistically, telling Coughlin he'll do everything possible to be back for the start of training camp.
Players often overestimate their ability to rehab quickly, so Nicks' words don't mean much. Coughlin's words do matter. He's not bringing Burress back, and he's confident he has the receiver depth to withstand Nicks' injury. We agree.
