ESPN is reporting Plax was changing flights in Los Angeles on his way to meet with the 49ers (so much for the theory winning another championship was a big factor for Burress)
Plax's agent said he already had told the Eagles he would sign if they met his # - the Jets said can we get the same deal - Plax said yes, Jets offered a guaranteed $3 million (and $17,000
) which Burress accepted.
This was all about the Benjamins - Steelers got played
