New York Giants middle linebacker Antonio Pierce is "cautiously optimistic" that a Manhattan grand jury will vote Monday to clear him of felony gun possession charges, according to a source close to Pierce.

While Pierce reported to Giants training camp Sunday, new details began to emerge about his secret two-day testimony before the Manhattan grand jury investigating the weapons possession charges against his former Giants teammate Plaxico Burress, who is out of football and awaiting whether he will be indicted.
"Some of the questions [from the grand jury] were accusatory, but most of them were helpful from Antonio's standpoint," said a source with knowledge of Pierce's testimony.

The grand jury, the source said, appeared to be focused on the 25 to 30 minutes after the incident that initially led New York Police Department investigators to question Pierce.
