After being officially reinstated by the NFL, embattled wide receiver Plaxico Burress is being courted in style by the New York Giants, his former team.

According to ESPN, Burress was flown by the private jet of billionaire CEO Seth Bernstein of Empower Software Solutions. Bernstein is a personal friend of Giants' co-owner Steve Tisch and allowed the Giants to use the jet to court Burress.

Burress was released last month from jail after serving a two year prison sentence for having an unregistered gun go off in a Manhattan night club, injuring himself in the process.

"The question is are we going to be able to move past the past and are we going to be able to live with each other moving forward," co-owner John Mara told ESPN.

In addition, the Giants are reportedly offering a salary and incentives package in the range of $10.5 million per year for their former wide receiver, a far cry from what he experienced in prison.

Burress was drafted by the Steelers in 2000, before signing as a free agent with the Giants in 2005. He is most known for catching the Super Bowl winning touchdown against the New England Patriots in 2008, ending the Patriots undefeated run.
