    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:
    I think more of being clever, Burgess hasn't exactly been lighting up the FA market and may be dragging some baggage with him. This way would have allowed them to see exactly what he could do and how he fitted in with the team. He is still looking for a big payday and I guess this wasn't enough for his plans
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Plax is a career #2 receiver but he wants #1 money! I'm glad he didn't take it, and like somebody else said, he'll be sorry!!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    I think the only place Burress wouldnt be sorry at is Indy the team with possibly the best QB team has offered him a decent contract and he turns it down he will be sorry especially when the vikings make it to the superbowl and his team will be watching them.

    Yeah, I'd be grateful that Plax didnt sign that deal because its ludicrous. No way he is worth that much, I would have lynched your player personnel guy had Plax signed. Hell I'd semi-lynch him now for offering such a deal if I were you guys.
    Inhale it. Savor it. Drink with your eyes and taste with every fiber of your flesh, revelations come through experience.

    Well that settles that. In a way I am kinda glad we did not get him after all.
