Burress was a vanity signing by the Jets to tweak the Giants - receivers in their mid-30s coming off 2 years in prison are not locks to be a positive factor
FWIW the P-G writers do not think the Sanders injury will have any long term consequences other than the downside of missing reps in camp when he was thought to be a challenger for Ward's starter's position
Yes. It's all part of the Rooney Master Plan to piss Thumper off and insure that the team stays mired in mediocrity. They intentionally spend too close to the cap to avoid having to pay players more in free agency. See, Thumper's got it all figured out and we don't.
