Similar to Plaxico Burress' situation, a reunion between the New York Giants and team's ex-wide receiver, Steve Smith, is hardly out of the question.
Quite frankly, it's logically sensible.
Smith will not be looking for any sort of lucrative contract, sort of like the one he thought the Giants had owed him following a season-ending injury back in 2010.
Unfortunately for Smith, and fortunately for the Giants, who found a gem in Victor Cruz this past season, a contract with New York was never reached. Smith was then forced to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles, formerly known as the "Dream Team." Some Giants fans saw this situation as betrayal, but the more intelligent followers realized it was just business.
With that said, I highly doubt the bridge for a reunion has been burned. Smith will be 27 years old when the 2012 season starts, so he's still relatively young.
Add into the mix that Smith knows the Giants' system and has already contributed to a Super Bowl victory, and it's hard for Eli Manning and company to deny him for a second straight offseason.
Food for thought, Smith's only touchdown as an Eagle came against the Giants during Week 11. If that doesn't spew irony, then I don't know what does.
