Tony Pauline of Sports Illustrated reports that if Scott were to hit the open market, the New York Giants be one of the first to contact him.
"Word from the combine: if the Jets cut Bart Scott he could end up changing locker rooms and playing for the Giants," Pauline tweeted.
Reports have circulated stating that Burress wants to play for the Philadelphia Eagles, but when Rich Gannon and Adam Schein asked Burress if he would play for the Giants again, the response left the possibility open.
“It’s always a great possibility,”
The Giants will mostly likely be losing Mario Manningham in free agency, so the idea of bringing Burress in may not be too far-fetched.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, ex-Giant Steve Smith would be open to a reunion in New York. Smith had great chemistry with Eli Manning during his tenure, and he would provide a cheap and reliable option for New York.
The Giants lost two of their top tight ends in the Super Bowl due to knee injuries, so a tight end will be a high priority heading into free agency and the draft.
Dallas Clark was recently released by the Colts, and after a sub-par season, he could come at a cheap price.
The move would allow the Giants to take the best player available at the end of round one instead of reaching for a tight end.

The Giants will need to find a backup to replace Brandon Jacobs, and I can see any of these three guys signing with New York.
Mike Tolbert may the best option as he would provide the Giants with an excellent third-down threat. Tolbert ran for 490 yards and eight touchdowns, and he also proved to be a productive receiver out of the backfield, totaling 433 yards and two touchdowns.
