Plaxico entered the complex at 6:30 p.m. and didn't leave until 8 p.m. He didn't talk to the media afterwards, avoiding them by leaving through a side door.
In addition to talking to Coughlin, Plaxico spoke with president John Mara and general manager Jerry Reese, as well as former teammates Brandon Jacobs and Mike Sullivan.
Plaxico and Coughlin needed a face-to-face to assure one another that they can put the past behind them and look towards the future.
It's too much of a win-win for both sides for Plaxico to not rejoin the Giants. The Giants could definitely use Plaxico's services, and Plaxico would love nothing more than to play football again.
The Giants organization, the players and the fans seem willing to give Plaxico another shot. Does he deserve it after his actions in previous years? In most cases, I would say no. But in this particular situation, I'm going to say yes.
Whether Plaxico signs with the Giants or the Steelers is out of our hands at the moment as fans, but this meeting is definitely a step in the right direction for the Giants.
