Another Giant headache? Plaxico Burress skipping minicamp

The New York Giants apparently will have the pleasure of dealing with yet another player unhappy with his contract. Wide receiver Plaxico Burress says he will not participate in the team’s mandatory minicamp this week because he’s upset with his current contract.

“Me and my agent (Drew Rosenhaus) have been trying to get a deal done, so I can (be) a New York Giant for a long time,” Burress said today. “I personally don’t like the way its going. I’m not happy about it and I’m going to choose not to participate.”

Burress, who signed a 6-year, $25 million deal in 2005, is slated to earn $10 million over the next three seasons. Near the end of last season — when he played despite a bum ankle — Burress claimed that he was one of the best receivers in the NFL, even though he was hobbled on one side.

Now it appears, he wants to be paid like it.

“We didn’t want it to get to this situation,” he said. “We just tried to handle it in-house and take it that way. But if I’m unhappy I’m going to express it.”

Amazing how Rosenhaus is yet again at the center of another contract dispute.

It’s almost the kiss of death to win the Super Bowl anymore, because players immediately start thinking that they’re underpaid. With Michael Strahan retiring, and both Burress and Jeremy Shockey bitching about their contracts, the Giants are having one hell of an offseason.
