Burress does not practice at NY Giants minicamp

Rick: How can you close me up? On what grounds?
Captain Renault: I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!
[a croupier hands Renault a pile of money]
Croupier: Your winnings, sir.
Captain Renault: [sotto voce] Oh, thank you very much.

Well, how many of you are SHOCKED that Burress is not happy because he does not have a new contract? The minute Gibril Wilson cashed in we signalled the alarm that Plaxico (amongst others) would want more money. And then we went one step further and warned specifically about Burress because of a report from Garafolo on Jevon Walker. Here's another WR who has a bigger contract on his mind...

Unfortunately, probably going to have to pay him. Would be nice if it could be a contract very rich in incentives though. At least he's a WR that Manning likes. And we really don't have much more at the WR position right now other than Toomer. Think about it this way... would you rather pay someone who is already familiar with the offense and players, or sign a rookie to some huge contract?

Agreed. Unfortunately, Reese has to reach into his pockets. Hopefully he can draw up a fair - yet incentive laden - contract.

Burress straightened up and flew right this past year. Gone were the hands in the air showing up Eli with his body language, and in were the tremendous plays made while healthy and hurt. He was a big part of the ring, you knew it was coming, he deserves a raise because he held up his share of the bargain. If he does not sprain his mcl the week of the Super Bowl we crush that team because he was ready to do to the Pats what he did to the Packers.

... and Plax says thank you to the team's new contract by cashing his bonus and then missing a team meeting and not calling in. disgraceful. no excuses, no defending him.
