    vikings offered 6 year deal 31 million and 9 million dollar bonus and turned it down, eagles still want him along with many others.

    The actual details of the contract would explain why he turned it down, it was big time in our favor. The $9 million roster bonus was paid in the 2nd year of the contract, meaning he gets no bonus this year and we only have to pay $4.5 million for this season. If he had a bad season, we could cut him and pay him no bonus. I am not suprised he turned that down. It basically was a 1 year deal for $4.5 million, unless he had a monster year.

    Well, if he was so damn confident in his playing abilities like he says he is, there should not have been a problem. Looks to me like we put the ball in his court, and even he questioned his own playing abilities.

    burress turned down vikings

    Link about this on Kfan (Under Wide Receiver section):

    http://vikings.kfan.com/sports/nflgu...9-173D518A2004

    Plaxico Burress visited Winter Park last weekend, but wasn’t interested in a one-year deal. The Vikings reportedly compromised by offering a six-year, $36 million deal that included a $9 million roster bonus. The catch? The bonus would be paid in 2006, giving the Vikings a free pass to cut ties with Burress after next season if he didn’t produce – potentially turning a long-term contract into a one-year deal without ramifications.
    Can't decide if that's an example of the F.O. being tight asses or very clever :scratch:
    My head is spinning round, I don t know what to do...
